About

The Security Council of the United Nations (UN) is perhaps the most important council in the UN when it comes to global decision making. As the only committee that passes legally binding resolutions, its main concern is to uphold international peace and security through a host of measures, such as peacekeeping operations, sanctions, and military intervention.

Overview

The Question of Russo-Ukrainian Hostilities

In recent years, the conflict in the Crimean Peninsula has developed from a conflict over contested land, to what could be the potential start of a Second Cold War. The most recent development in the Kerch Straits, where several Ukrainian vessels were boarded by Russian naval personnel, has garnered international attention and heightened existing tensions. Considering that the conflict is deeply rooted in underlying dissent between parties, it is more complex than what it seems. With the imminent threat of the conflict escalating into a clash between geopolitical giants, the situation must defused before things take a turn for the worst.

The Issue of International Cyber Warfare

While improvements in technology may benefit our daily lives, it also increases the risks of cyber warfare, haunting nations that rely heavily on technology. Countries such as North Korea and the USA have used this new realm of warfare to infiltrate and sabotage other nations or companies, a situation worsened by the lack of any major international framework to curb the use of cyber attacks. This begs the question: should the UNSC step in, and what can it do about it?
