Responsible for maintaining international peace and security, the UNSC is one of the main organs of the United Nations.
Adopting binding resolutions for UN member states, this committee plays a pioneering role in international politics.
Participation in this committee requires high diplomatic skills as the five permanent members (China, France, Russia, United Kingdom and the United States of America) have veto power to block resolutions.
Each of the ten non-permanent members has one vote, however, they lack the veto power.
This year’s UNSC will be open to double delegations, so prepare for a fierce debate.
Topic A: Territorial claims in the Chinese Sea
Topic B: Finding middle- and long-term solutions to the Yemen conflict
