United Nations Security Council (UNSC)

UNSC has the primary responsibility of the maintenance of international peace and security. It has 15 Members, and each Member has one vote. UNSC has powers through the UN Charter which other committees lack -- it can impose sanctions and authorize the use of force. At any one time, the UNSC consists of 15 members, five permanent with veto power. The UNSC serves the role of representing the United Nation's interest in international collective security. The UNSC takes the lead in determining the existence of a threat to the peaceful means and recommends methods of adjustment or terms of settlement. In some cases, the Security Council can resort to imposing sanctions or even authorize the use of force to maintain or restore international peace and security.
