Global Legislation and the UN Security Council
The past three decades have been characterized by an intensive engagement of the UN Security Council in “global legislation“, within thematic resolutions and general rules or obligations within case-specific “threat to peace“ resolutions. This contested term is the main subject of scholarly work worldwide, as it bears significant practical implications regarding the Council’s relations with member states, the scope of its authority under the UN Charter, and the appropriateness of its conduct. The purpose of this panel is to discuss the Council’s global legislation attempts, its meaning, outcomes, and future developments. ** Schedule Preference #1 is the only one that fits everyone in the panel.
