Background and faculties

On October 24, 1945 the Security Council (SC) was founded. Its main objective is to maintain international peace and security against any threat by responding to crises around the world. SC is the only organism in the UN that can make mandatory decisions. It is composed of 15 members; 5 of them 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), alongside with 10 non-permanent members which are elected for two-year terms. The council has the responsibility and power to provide logistical and secretariat support, impose economic sanctions, access to armaments of radical groups, reinforce international cooperation and deploy peacekeeping force to a conflict zone.

With the purpose of achieving its mission of ensuring global peace and security, the Security Council has the capacity to:

  • Investigate any dispute or situation which might lead to international friction.

  • Recommend methods or strategies to adjust conflict resolution conditions.

  • Create plans for the regulation and utilization of armaments.

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

  • Take military action against an aggressor as long as peace and security are being threatened.
