Advertisement Remove all ads


The Security Council enforces its decisions through the following means:
(i) Imposition of sanctions through Member-States of the UN against the aggressor.
(ii) The ‘Unanimity Rule’ popularly known as Veto. A ‘No’ of any particular Permanent Member, even though all other members might be in favour of the decision, can make the resolution inoperative. This ‘Veto’ Actually makes the Security Council stronger as it prevents the parties in dispute from manipulating the situation at international level in their favour. Kashmir problem is a case in point.
(iii) Armed intervention, as the UN did with Iraq, when there is majority decision.
(iv) Force the parties to come to negotiating table through various other means.

Concept: General Assembly, the Security Council, and the International Court of Justice
