Committee Introduction: The Security Council (SC) is among the six chief organs of the United Nations (UN), and is headquartered in New York. It was founded on October 24th, 1945, following the Second World War, in an attempt to tackle the shortcomings of the League of Nations in maintaining peace among states. As such, based on the UN Charter, the SC is responsible for the promotion and maintenance of peace and security within the international context. In the event that peace is threatened, the SC convenes. Contrary to the decisions of the General Assembly (GA), the SC’s decisions are binding on all member states. As per Article 25 on the UN Charter, “The Members of the United Nations agree to accept and carry out the decisions of the Security Council in accordance with the present Charter.”
