UNSC Reform: An Imperative Need

This is the most substantive analysis on why reform is required at the UN Security Council that I have come across so far. I am in complete agreement with the proposal that the author has mooted. The reasons have also been convincingly argued. It is unacceptable that a global body today consists of countries that were victors in the World War II more than a half a century ago. Global reality has changed significantly since. The UNSC is fast losing its credibility as the representative of global voice and custodian of world peace thanks to the intransigence of its permanent members to initiate reforms by opening the door to rising powers and giving them an equal share of the powers that they enjoy. A more representative UNSC will ensure that global interest prevail over that of member countries and prevent narrow regionalism from coming into play while broad policy measures with wider ramifications are decided at the horse-shoe table.
