United Nations Security Council (UNSC)
The Security Council is one of the principal organs of the United Nations and tasked with maintaining international peace and security. It consists of 15 member states, where 10 serve a two year non-permanent term, while five, France, China, Russia, and United Kingdom, and the United States, serve as permanent members, all with veto power.
The Security Council takes the lead in determining the existence of a threat to the peace or act of aggression. It calls upon the parties of a dispute to settle it by peaceful means and recommends methods of adjustment or terms of settlement. In some cases, the Security Council can resort to breaking off diplomatic ties and imposing sanctions or even authorize the use of force to maintain or restore international peace and security.
Note: The member states within the Council have been changed from the current one in order to fit the interconnectivity format of this conference.
