United Nations Security Council (Crisis).
One of the six principal organs of the United Nations, the Security Council is responsible for the maintenance of international peace and security; the admission of new member states to the United Nations, and approving any changes to the United Nations Charter. Through establishing international peacekeeping missions, imposing international sanctions, and authorising military action through resolutions; the Security Council is able to impose binding actions on member states, making it the most powerful UN institution. Consisting of fifteen members, the Security Council is a small body, and is dominated by the permanent five veto-wielding powers of China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Always a high-profile institution, the United Nations Security Council is interesting to simulate, in both its present-day and historic contexts.
