United Nations Security Council (UNSC)

The United Nations Security Council is tasked with maintaining international stability and peace by means of peacekeeping operations, sanctions and military action. With five permanent and ten rotating members, it is the only UN body with the ability to issue binding resolutions to member states and to approve any changes to the Charter of the United Nations. In the past year, it has deliberated on issues ranging from the non-proliferation of the DPRK to the plight of the Rohingya in Myanmar. Each delegate from a permanent member country – the USA, the UK, France, China and Russia – will have a veto in substantive voting procedures.

Chair applications will open soon.
