Committee's outline and faculties

The Security Council (SC) has the responsibility to maintain peace and security within the international community. Originally the SC consisted of eleven members, five permanent members (the People’s Republic of China, the French Republic, the Russian Federation, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, and the United States of America), and six nonpermanent members. In 1965, an amendment to the UN Charter increased the council members to fifteen, including the original five permanent members. Each member of the Council has one vote, and all members are obliged to comply with the decisions taken by the SC. The Council determines the existence of threats to peace and calls upon parties of conflicts to settle peacefully. It mainly focuses on topics related to the surge of terrorism, the conflicts between and
within States, and the proliferation of nuclear weapons.


To accomplish its mission of ensuring peace globally, the faculties of the Council are:

  • Investigating any dispute that may lead to international friction.

  • Recommending methods of adjusting international disputes.

  • Formulating plans for the regulation of armaments.

  • Applying economic sanctions and other measures not involving the use of force to stop or prevent aggression.

  • Taking military action against an aggressor.

  • Exercising the trusteeship functions of the United Nations in "strategic areas."
