United Nations Security Council (UNSC)
The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) is a small committee composed of the five permanent members, also referred to as the P5, and 10 other rotating members which focuses its efforts on maintaining international peace and stability through resolutions and agreements. The UNSC is the committee which has the power to establish peacekeeping operations, enact sanctions and authorize resolutions. Additionally, the Security Council is structured in a manner that provides the P5 to have veto powers on all substantive matters within the council. Delegates should be ready to engage in highly polarized and substantive debate while forming binding resolutions and agreements for all members of the United Nations. The Security Council at JHUMUNC XXV will face a number of evolving and challenging geopolitical questions and grapple with contemporary issues in creative ways.
Topic A: Addressing the Taliban's Resurgence following the Withdrawal of U.S. Troops
Topic B: Response to the Lithuanian Migrant Crisis
