THE NEED TO EXPAND UN SECURITY COUNCIL: THE QUESTIONS ANSWERED OR THE ANSWERS QUESTIONED

Anirudha Choudhury, Prateek Mishra.

Abstract
One of the greatest metaphors and ironies of International relations and politics confounding mankind
has been the question of reform of the United Nations, especially within the UN Security Council.
According to the established fact, the UN Security Council was especially designed for the
maintenance of international peace and security. It has 15 Members, and each Member has one vote.
Under the provisions of the U.N Charter, all Member States are obligated to comply with the decisions
of the U.N Security Council .
It is also a fact that out of the 15 Security Council members, only 5 are permanent members,
namely the United States, United Kingdom, France, China, and Russia. These 5 members have a
special power, called the veto power, allowing them to veto any substantive resolution, with which they
disagree. It is because of this fact that there has been the need to expand the UN Security Council, and
include more countries, including India, Brazil, Japan, Germany and South Africa. In this regard, some
countries have opposed this move, including Pakistan, Italy, Argentina and Egypt. The accompanying
paper would be discussing the various issues and legal intricacies of this subject.

Key words: United Nations, Security Council, Expansion, Veto power, reforms
