United Nations Historical Security Council (UNHSC)
The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) is one of the six principal organs of The United Nations, devoted to maintain international peace and security. Unlike the rest of UN organs, it has the power to make binding decisions. Security Council has 5 permanent members -China, France, Russia, United Kingdom, and United States of America – that have the right to veto decisions and 10 rotating members that are elected on a regional basis and are given a seat in the Security Council for two-year terms. All members work together for the sake of the world with the purpose of keeping ongoing peace and finding compromises that will satisfy both the needs and rights of areas of conflict. The Security Council has the right to establish peacekeeping operations and international sanctions as well as to approve new memberships to the United Nations and to alter the United Nations Charter.
Arab Spring, also known as The Democracy Spring was a series of both violent and non-violent anti-government protests, uprisings, riots and civil wars in the Arab World that was initiated on 17 December 2010 with the Tunisian Revolution and spread out through Arab World and its surroundings. It was an offshoot of dissatisfaction of public with the rule of local governments, unemployment, food inflation, political corruption and iniquitous living conditions. Arab Spring caused many changes in the Arab World such as numerous overthrown governments, reforms and civil wars. Today, world still suffers from consequences of the Arab Spring and The United Nations Security Council meets to find solutions for the areas of conflict. Within KAIHLMUN 2017, delegates will have the opportunity to rewrite the history of Arab Spring from the very beginning in order to maintain peace in the world.
