An excerpt from the thesis:

The foundations for the United Nations concepts of peace and security can be found in the historical accounts of the drafting of the Declaration by United Nations on January 1, 1942. This document first used the term “United Nations” and it spelled out the primary intentions of the 26 nations that came together. In the declaration these sentences give reference to peace and security; “That the only true basis for enduring peace is the willing cooperation of the free peoples in a world in which, relieved of the menace of aggression, all may enjoy economic and social security; and that it is their intention to work with other free peoples both in war and in peace to this end.”
