The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) is the primary peacekeeping organ of the United Nations. The UNSC works to diffuse acts of aggression and threats to the maintenance of peace both internationally and intranationally; in the words of the UN Charter, the UNSC serves to “investigate any dispute, or any situation which might lead to international friction or give rise to a dispute, in order to determine whether the continuance of the dispute or situation is likely to endanger the maintenance of international peace and security”
It is the only body of the UN with the power to pass legally binding resolutions. In other words, in the process of joining the United Nations, member states agree to carry out the resolutions passed by the UNSC. If a country fails to comply to a resolution, she is usually met with punitive measures. These measure include, in order of increasing severity, the investigation of the issue, the recommendation of procedures for peaceful resolutions, calling upon member states to enforce economic sanctions, calling upon member states to sever diplomatic relations, and as a last resort, the use of military force.
UNSC is an advanced committee, featuring fast-paced developments and a high level of debate. Thus, this committee is only open to the most experienced and competitive of delegates. Position papers are mandatory for this committee. Please read about CAHSMUN’s Position Paper policy, which can be found under the list of committees on the “Committees” page.
Questions, inquiries and position papers for this committee can be emailed to email@example.com.

Eric Zhang | Director
Eric is a senior attending St. George's School and is saddened by the fact that CAHSMUN 2018 will be his last CAHSMUN. After beginning his MUN journey in grade 7, he fell in love with how professional, yet fun, MUN is. In his free time, you can find Eric playing basketball, chasing curved pieces of plastic, watching moving pictures, investing in bitcoin, making "fantastic" puns, and creating the most horrendous grammar mistakes. Eric is looking forward to staffing at CAHSMUN 2018 and hopes to make it an unforgettable experience for everybody. If you ever see him out of committee session, feel free to say hi to him, or to yell his name and then proceed to dab.
