Security Council (2017)

The Security Council is the most powerful body of the United Nations, having under the UN Charter five “permanent members” and ten elected members with two-year terms. It takes the lead in determining the existence of a threat to the peace or act of aggression. It calls upon the parties to a dispute to settle it by peaceful means and recommends methods of adjustment or terms of settlement. In some cases, the Security Council can resort to imposing sanctions or even authorize the use of force to maintain or restore international peace and security.
