UN Security Council (UNSC) – Advanced Committee
One of the six principal organs of the UN, the UNSC comprises 15 members, 5 of which are permanent and which hold veto power. The UNSC is tasked with the maintenance of international peace and security, including the establishment of peacekeeping operations, the imposition of international sanctions and the authorisation of military action. In recent years, the UNSC has discussed the war in Syria, the denuclearisation of North Korea and other regional and civil conflict. In OxIMUN the UNSC is run like a typical SC simulation, with a particular focus on topical conflicts.
