Security Council (SC UNI)

The Security Council is one of the six principal organs of the United Nations and was established by the UN Charter. The Security Council has primary responsibility for the maintenance of international peace and security. The Security Council takes the lead in determining the existence of a threat to peace or act of aggression. It calls upon the parties to a dispute to settle it by peaceful means and recommends methods of adjustment or terms of a settlement. Issues of peace and security may be brought to the attention of the Security Council by one of the General Assemblies. For the purposes of this conference, the University Level Committee of the Security Council will deliberate on their own agenda and also look into issues presented to them by the General Assembly and its different committees.
 

Topics:

1. The Discussion of the Deal of the Century
2. The Discussion of Resolutions from the First, Third, and Sixth Committees of the General Assembly
