United Nations Security Council
Topic 1: Future Relations with the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK)
Topic 2: Peacekeeping Within Middle East and North Africa States
Perhaps one of the most principal bodies of the United Nations, the United Nations Security Council shall be convening at BosMUN to discuss the maintenance of international peace and security. Being a committee of only fifteen delegations, the United Nations Security Council is a small but rapid pace committee that shall be forming resolutions alongside crisis updates. As stated under the charter of the United Nations, decisions made in this committee are obligatory to all UN member states, thereby increasing their immediate impact upon the world. However, in a committee where five member states possess veto power, strategic compromise and communication will be essential to the success of the delegates.
