Chapter Summary

This chapter deals with the existence or not of a need to modify the composition of the Security Council (SC). The author's argument can be summarised as follows: at present, taking into account the realities of international society, it is neither possible nor necessary to modify the composition of the SC. To state that it is not feasible to modify its composition is, to some extent, self-explanatory. The chapter focuses on the argument that there is no need to change the present composition of the main UN organ charged with the maintenance of international peace and security. This includes the enlargement of SC membership, the inclusion of new permanent members - with or without a veto power - and the abolition of this power for those presently enjoying it, namely the five permanent members (P5).

Keywords: international law; Security Council (SC)
