The Historic Security Council is a simulation of the UN Security Council during a historical event, enabling the delegates to witness and rewrite history as it happens. The Security Council is the body of the highest power in the system of the United Nations, one with the responsibility to maintain international peace and security. While its purpose can be put on paper in just 5 words, fulfilling that same purpose is an arduous task demanding the highest levels of diplomatic and negotiating skills from its members.
The Cold War was characterized by high tensions within the bi-polar world and the friction from the clash between the ideologies of capitalism and communism generated heated confrontations, one of the most significant being the Vietnam war, an armed conflict between the communist regime of North Vietnam and its southern allies, the Viet Cong, against the capitalist South Vietnam and its principal ally, the United States with a death toll in the millions and inhuman brutalities.
Add the forum of the UNSC to the heated crises generated by the Vietnam War, and it is indefinitely evident that the Historic Security Council promises unparalleled debate bound to keep the delegates on their toes as they attempt to protect lives and restore peace.
