UNSC

The United Nations Security Council (UNSC), in 1945, II. Founded just after World War II. The Security Council was constructed as an organ with primary responsibility for preserving peace. Unlike the General Assembly, it was given power to enforce measures and was organized as a compact executive organ. Unlike the assembly, the Security Council, in theory, functions continuously at the seat of the United Nations. 

The Security Council, the United Nations' principal crisis-management body, is empowered to impose binding obligations on the 193 UN member states to maintain peace. The council’s five permanent and ten elected members meet regularly to assess threats to international security, addressing issues that include civil wars, natural disasters, arms control, and terrorism. Structurally, the body remains largely unchanged since its founding in 1945, stirring debate among many members about its efficacy and authority as a mediator on matters of international security.
