United Nations Security Council (UNSC)
The United Nations Security Council is one of the United Nation’s principal organs, and as such takes the lead in determining the existence of a threat to the peace or an act of aggression. It calls upon the parties to a dispute to settle it by peaceful means and recommends methods of adjustment or terms of settlement. Under the UN Charter, all Member States are obligated to comply with the Council’s decisions.
The Security Council consists of five permanent members and ten non-permanent member states. Observer states can be invited to the Council’s sessions.
For this edition of KULMUN we will look to confront the UNSC’s delegates with topics which are frequently overlooked and where perhaps the non-permanent members might have more influence over the final decision than the permanent ones.
