UNSC

United Nations Security Council

Committee Description

The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) is one of the most influential international bodies that has ever come into existence as it is the only binding UN organ. This means that the UNSC has the right to make definitive decisions on issues threatening the security and sovereignty of nations by intervening through military, economic, or political means.

The UNSC consists of fifteen members in total five of which (France, People’s Republic of China, Russian Federation, United Kingdom, and the United States of America) are permanent members; the five permanent members posses the veto power, meaning that if any one of them votes against a clause or resolution that clause or resolution automatically fails. The other ten members are temporary and change every two years. The attendees must be knowledgeable and experienced to debate in the ad hoc format that the UNSC follows.
