The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) is an organ of the UN that aims to maintain international peace and security. However, it is undemocratic due to the power disparity in representation, the veto power given to the five permanent members, and a lack of transparency. The veto power has led to issues being unaddressed and limited the issues that are brought up in the UNSC. Reforms to expand the UNSC permanent membership or to change the states enjoying it have met varying degrees of scrutiny from the US, Russia, and China, which have denied most of these potential reforms.
