United Nations Security Council (UNSC)
The Global Proxy War in Syria
The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) is one of the main six organs of the United Nations (UN) with the primary responsibility to maintain the international peace and security by issuing and dispatching a consensus agreement. The UNSC itself consists of 15 members where 5 of them are the permanent ones, well-known as the P5, while the other 10 members are elected for two-year working terms.
The Global Proxy War in Syria
Syrian Civil War that has engulfed since 2011 has destroyed most of the Syrian economy, infrastructure and facilities. Once a formidable power in the Middle East because of oil and the influence in the region, the Syrian Arab Republic has fallen into the most destructive position it has ever been. This perfect moment became the holy grail for a foreign power to interfere directly or indirectly, so they would have total domination and influence in the region. The involvement of these foreign powers prolongs the suffering and the destruction of Syria.
Ichsan is currently a junior year undergraduate student in the Department of International Relations Universitas Indonesia and now serving as Secretary General of UI MUN Club. A not-so-avid but actually avid MUN-ers, Ichsan joined the MUN circuit since his high school days and not looking back ever since. Gathered couple awards and also several losses, MUN helped Ichsan a lot, whether the academic insight he gained from researching the topic, connection with other delegates that he forever cherished or chances to explore cities and countries in between and after the council session. He loves to read and post white letters on top of black background as Instagram stories, but beware because it’s usually filled with his daily rant or thoughts.
