About the UN Security Council

Security Council

Being one of the six main organs of the United Nations, the Security Council is thought to be one of the most powerful bodies.

Being one of the six main organs of the United Nations, the Security Council is thought to be one of the most powerful bodies. The Council is entitled under The UN Charter with primary responsibility for the maintenance of peace and security. Composed of fifteen member-states out of which five benefit of the permanent member status, the Security Council plays an increasingly significant role on the resolution of conflicts worldwide as it has the ability to dispatch military operations, to impose sanctions and/or deploy election observers, just to name a few.

In 1997, The Council members started an active collaboration with Non-Governmental Organizations which indicated a step further for global transparency and accountability of the decision-makers.
