UNITED NATIONS SECURITY COUNCIL (UNSC):
AGENDA: DISCUSSING THE SITUATION IN
AFGHANISTAN WITH RESPECT TO THE
The UNSC is the foremost tool of the United Nations that fulfils its main duty of preserving peace in the world. However, to enact binding legislation, the UNSC requires unanimity. The world must display unity any time the council needs to act, as controversial an issue as peacekeeping may be. Afghanistan finds itself a clear showcase of how troublesome that can be.
With 20 years of war culminating in a takeover of the country by the Taliban, the future of the region remains far from clear. Though it seems unlikely to end well if things continue along this path. A radical ideology based on oppression, suppression, and outward violence has forcefully established itself in Afghanistan with near complete military domination from the Taliban. While the organisation claims to be different and willing to negotiate with their newly established control over the region, decades of action seem to say otherwise.
What can the world do to resolve this conflict when the military occupation is practically complete? Is united effort from the world community possible, and if so, is it enough?
Presenting to you, the United Nations Security Council.
