United Nations Security Council

As the single most powerful UN entity, the Security Council is responsible for addressing all issues threatening international peace and security. The Security Council must work to create effective resolutions with clear and powerful language that will have tangible results in the real world. In facing this immense responsibility, the committee will utilize several tools of diplomacy usually unavailable to any other agency. The veto power of the Permanent Five (P5) members gives the UNSC a uniquely intense flair that is unlike any other committee.

The most prestigious body at VMUN 2020, this committee is specifically designed for experienced delegates. Position papers are mandatory, and must be submitted by Februay 7th, 2020, at 23:59 PST. More information about position papers can be found on page 3 of the Background Guide.
