The Elected Ones: Taking Care of Business in the UN Security Council, a study on Sweden (2017-18)

Wed, 23 Jun 2021 13:00-14:30 - Online event

​On 11 June 2021, state representatives gathered in the UN General Assembly to elect new members to the UN Security Council (UNSC) for a two-year term. Elected states have an opportunity to affect core matters of international peace and security, but what are the practical implications for a state as one of the elected? How do they assess opportunities and form aims and strategies for their terms? What conditions do they have to maneuver to promote their interests in a hierarchical Council? Finally, how can we understand and assess potential results from their efforts? These questions are discussed in the report Sweden as an Elected Member of the UN Security Council (2017-18): Promoting Women, Peace and Security as Core Council Business. This webinar brings together scholars and decision-makers to discuss the findings of the report. promote dialogue, and advance our knowledge on elected UNSC members.
