United Nations Security Council

Several international treaty organizations and conferences, such as the International Committee of the Red Cross and the Hague Conventions, had been formed in the century prior to the UN’s creation to control international conflicts. Following the devastating loss of life in World War I, the Paris Peace Conference founded the League of Nations to promote international peace. This organization was successful in resolving territorial conflicts and establishing international mechanisms in fields like as postal mail, aviation, and opium control, some of which were ultimately integrated into the United Nations. The League, on the other hand, lacked representation for colonial peoples and significant participation from several major powers, including the United States, the Soviet Union, Germany, and Japan. furthermore, it failed to act against the Japanese invasion of Manchuria in 1931, the Second Italo-Ethiopian War in 1935, the Japanese occupation of China in 1937, and Nazi expansions under Adolf Hitler, which escalated into World War II.

The Security Council, like the United Nations as a whole, was established after World War II to remedy the League of Nations’ failures in sustaining world peace. The United Nations Security Council met for the first time on January 17, 1946, in Church House in Westminster, London. The Security Council has had a permanent home at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City since its first meeting. It also visited a number of locations, including Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, in 1972, Panama City, Panama, and Geneva, Switzerland, in 1990.

The Cold War was a conflict between the United States and the Soviet Union, as well as their allies. Despite this, military engagements in the Korean War and the Congo Crisis were approved, as well as peacekeeping missions in the Suez Crisis, Cyprus, and West New Guinea. With the fall of the Soviet Union, UN peacekeeping activities grew drastically in scope, with large military and peacekeeping missions authorized by the Security Council in Kuwait, Namibia, Cambodia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Rwanda, Somalia, Sudan, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

The united nations security council was structured to have a total of 15 members, which consists of 5 permanent members and 10 non permanent members. The members who enjoy a permanent spot in the security council along with the benefit of veto power are, The People’s Republic of China, the French Republic, the Russian Federation, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, and the United States of America. The great powers, or their successor states, emerged victorious from World War II. Any substantive resolution, including those on the admission of new member states to the United Nations or nominees for the position of Secretary-General, can be vetoed by permanent members. The remaining ten members are elected at the regional level for a two-year term. The body’s presidency is rotated among its members on a monthly basis.

It can be said that this organ of united nations was established in the charters as a separate and independent organ that works for peace and stability in times of crisis and works in similar reproductive manner to maintain the peace and stability united nations along with the its all the signatory members desire for, A representative of each of its members must be present at all times at UN Headquarters so that the Security Council can meet at any time as the need arises.
