The Security Council (UNSC)
What Is It?
The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) consists of fifteen member countries, out of which five are permanent members, along with ten that are elected for a two-year term. The Permanent five (P5), namely Russia, the United Kingdom, the United States of America, France, and China, have veto powers. Under the UN charter, the main roles of the UNSC are to maintain international peace and security; to develop friendly relations among nations; to cooperate in solving international problems and in promoting respect for human rights; and to be a centre for harmonizing the actions of nations. All resolutions ratified by the UNSC are binding to all member states.
1) The Question of The Democratic Republic of the Congo and the Problems of Peace Missions
2) The Question of Reviewing the Role of the Security Council in Relation to China's Trade Agreements and other International Committments
I am a third year Politics and International Relations student at the University of Manchester, and have been involved in MUN since the ripe young age of 13 and 6 years later my passion for diplomatic conferences has not changed nor wavered, yet I have luckily been involved in different ways over that time from being a delegate to chair to secretariat member. The academic stimulus conferences provide, and their ability serve as a practical representation of what I study every day, and it is this reality which I hope will transcend to my delegates at ReadiMUN.
Currently, I am on the Secretariat of Oxford International MUN, and Secretary General of Manchester’s MUN, as well as the Co-Conference Director of the Peace Conference 2019, in each of these roles I have tried to use the structure of the context provided (or designed) to best represent the idiosyncrasies of international politics. Hopefully, my time currently spent in New York working at the UN Head Quarters will give me another way to provide a sense of realism and dynamism to ReadiMUN delegates as I have the privilege of Chairing UNSC for the first time at a University conference. My co chair and I have carefully crafted the topics to include various issues which together will hopefully be of interest to all of you as prospective ReadiMUN 2019 Delegates. See you in December!
P.S. If you wish to bribe this chair bring her produce of any kind, she will be eternally indebted to you
Hi, I'm Jana. I was born and raised in Belgrade, Serbia. I'm a senior in XIV Belgrade Grammar School, specialised in Science, as well as being the student body president there.
As a freshmen at the Faculty of Political Sciences in Belgrade, my major interests are (believe it or not) Political Sciences, music and debate. For the last two years I'm active in youth activism area - I’m the vice-president of OBES (Belgrade High School Organization) and Belgrade Youth Chamber. Currently, I’m quite active in OSSA (Organization of Serbian Students Abroad).
My hobby is music, as I’ve studied piano for eight years and opera singing for two. I’m also a passionate traveler and a huge gourmet and food lover (especially when it comes to Italian cuisine...). I’m very excited to chair this conference, and to met all of you as well! Should you have any questions, feel free to contact me via any social network you find me on.
