Issues on the agenda
The Situation in South Sudan
The Security Council is one of the six principal organs of the United Nations and is mainly charged with the sustenance of international peace and security. The core capabilities and responsibilities of the Security Council are as follows; authorization of peacekeeping forces which are supplied by voluntary member states, enforcing that international sanctions are upheld, and the sanctioning of the military interventions. The Security Council plays a pivotal role in the proceedings of the UN and is also a key figure in international relations as a whole, as it is the only UN body with the capability to pass resolutions with binding power on the member states. In this committee, the delegates are expected to find efficient and exhaustive solutions to issues that threaten security and peace on a global or regional scale and also to ensure that their actions address the roots of the issue to permanently eliminate the source of the problem.
