Security Council

The United Nations Security Council is a body composed of 15 nations, five of which are permanent members (United States, France, UK, China, and Russia) and ten of which are rotating spots granted to all other member states for two year terms. The United Nations Security Council is the UN body dedicated to ensuring peace and cooperation between nations. In order to maintain this international peace and global security, the UNSC discusses matters including but not limited to resolving territorial disputes, mitigating armed conflicts, and intervening in humanitarian crises. The five permanent member states have the ability to veto any resolution passed by a majority within the UNSC and the UNSC as a whole has the special powers to impose a wide array of sanctions on sovereign states as well as the power to deploy peacekeeping forces where necessary.
