Elected Members of the Security Council: Lame Ducks or Key Players?


Elected Members of the Security Council: Lame Ducks or Key Players?

Edited by Nico Schrijver and Niels Blokker



300 pages


Nijhoff Law Specials; Volume 99


Former country representatives, United Nations officials, and law scholars explore the role of the 10 elected, non-permanent members of the United Nations Security Council, who do not have veto power like the five permanent members, but play a role in decision making. In sections on law and practice, inside and outside experiences, and niches, they consider such topics as campaigning for an elected seat in the UN Security Council, pursuing peace and justice on the Security Council: the Canadian experience, representing the European Union at the United Nations: the Security Council dimension, environmental peace building and the US Security Council, and elected members as a bridge between the permanent members and the rest of the UN membership.
