According to the Charter, the Security Council has primary responsibility for the maintenance of international peace and security. It consists of 15 member states, with one vote given to each. Recognizable are the 5 permanent member states that are granted with a veto power. All of the other 10 member states are elected with two-year terms. Aligned to its task the Security Council meets whenever peace is threatened. It also has the unique power to make decisions that the member states are then obligated to implement.



Hello delegates! I’m Estelle, a 4 th year student at the French Ecole Polytechnique, currently pursuing an additional MA in Conflict, Security and Development at King’s College, London. I started Model UN in 2015, first as a delegate, then as President of my university’s MUN association. Now I participate in MUNs mostly as a chair, with a preference for conflict and security-oriented issues. I’m also happy to tell you that it will be my third time at HamMUN. I am looking forward to chairing the UNSC committee together with Marcus, and I expect fruitful and mind-blowing sessions! See you all at the conference!


I’m Marcus, born and raised in Zwickau, and a student from Chemnitz University of Technology. My major is in European studies with a minor in cultural sciences and a focus on Eastern Europe. I started doing MUN in 2012 at HamMUN and chaired for the first time at HamMUN 2013. Two of the highlights of my MUN career were the participation at NMUN 2013 and 2016. After gathering some experience in Turkish MUN I can’t wait to put those experience to good use and chair the UNSC. My favourite topics in international politics are defence, security and disarmament. In my spare time I enjoys hiking through Eastern Europe and I’m speaker of UNYAnet Germanies International Department. I’m looking forward to an interesting conference, exciting developments and a great time in Hamburg!
