The Historical Security Council is a permanent council established by the UN Charter, with the sole purpose of maintaining international peace and security. The UNSC is the only council that can force a nation to do something, as long as it passes in a Resolution.
Like the UN as a whole, the Security Council was created after World War II. It held its first session in 1946 but was largely paralyzed in the following decades by the Cold War. The Security Council consists of fifteen members, of which five are permanent. Permanent members can veto any substantive resolution, including those on the admission of new member states to the United Nations or nominees for the office of Secretary-General.
Agenda Item: Yemen Crisis
Yemen remains one of the largest humanitarian crises in the world, with around 23.7 million people in need of assistance, including almost 13 million children.
Since the conflict escalated in March 2015, the country has become a living hell for the country’s children. More than 10,200 children have been killed or maimed since the beginning of the conflict, and thousands more have been recruited into the fighting. For these reasons, the delegates will face these problems in the committee of HUNSC and present methods of resolution.
