The United Nations Security Council is one of the six principal organs of the United Nations, and is charged with maintaining peace and international security. Their powers include the establishment of peacekeeping missions and military action, and nowhere is their intervention needed more than Yemen. Since their previous president ousted their newest president in a coup d'etat and was subsequently assassinated, the country has dissolved into chaos. Famine and cholera have swept the country, and the outbreak of civil war has prevented sufficient aid from reaching the stricken. In this special session of the U.N. Security Council, delegates will have to navigate tense regional politics and other vested international interests to help alleviate the humanitarian crisis in Yemen, and potentially even ending the conflict there.
