Security Council

Facing the threats imposed on European peace and security caused by the recent terrorist attacks of DAESH



Overview

The Security Council is the United Nations' most powerful body, with primary responsibility for the maintenance of international peace and security. The Security Council takes the lead in determining the existence of a threat to the peace or act of aggression. It calls upon the parties of 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 breaking off diplomatic ties and imposing sanctions or even authorize the use of force to maintain or restore international peace and security. The Security Council is one of the six main organs established under the UN Charter. While other organs of the United Nations make recommendations to member states, only the Security Council has the power to make decisions, where the member states are then obligated to implement under the Charter.

Topic
Facing the threats imposed on European peace and security caused by the recent terrorist attacks of DAESH.The recent attacks in and beyond Europe proved the need to work across all policies to prevent and fight terrorism. Today's security faces the need for determined, rapid and cohesive action to modernize the relevant legislation, but also for strict cooperation and exchange of key information. Hard-line measures are necessary to restore the confidence of European citizens and to limit the strike force of terrorist groups. However, this response will be insufficient if it does not consider the root causes of the problem, particularly political instability in the Middle East and Muslim integration into European society. Thus, in order to assure peace and security, the impact of the conflicts in the Middle East on Europe should be taken into account, as well as the need for integration of Muslims into European society.
