The United Nations Security Council since its conception in 1945 has been known as the teeth of the United Nations. However, with the UN's membership growing to become virtually universally representative of all members throughout the globe, many have argued that the UNSC lacks representation of the UN as a whole. 

In this crisis committee UNSC we will look into both how we can reform the United Nations Security Council to make more representative of the UN and then apply this to how the UN would be able to respond to crisis' of a humanitarian nature in geopolitically sensitive regions throughout the globe. We look forward to seeing you in November!
