United Nations Security Council Reforms: Case for Inclusion of African representation in the permanent membership
Over 70 years ago, the United Nations Security Council (UNSC), a body majorly mandated with maintenance of international peace and security was created. Membership to this body consists of 5 permanent member carrying veto power over major decisions as well as 10 elected non-permanent members. The permanent members since inception are USA, UK, France, Russia and China who were World War II victors. In the spirit of continental representation, Africa, the second largest continent is unrepresented on the permanent membership list. In the lens of socio-economic development, peace and democratization, the event is meant to stimulate minds towards case for the revision of the UNSC membership to include members from the developing world, particularly Africa, the cradle of civilization.
