Peace, the Security Council and the Individual
The Security Council is the sharp end of the United Nations. It is popularly, and not inaccurately, regarded as the executive body of an organisation in which the General Assembly fills the role of a popular assembly and the Secretariat provides the bureaucracy which makes the wheels go round. What the UN does it does through its councils, above all the Security Council. What it fails to do is imputed as failure to the Security Council. To a large degree the repute of the UN is measured in terms of the activity and effectiveness of the Security Council.
