Questions considered by the Security Council under its responsibility for the maintenance of international peace and security

The Repertoire provides an overview of the role of the Security Council in its primary responsibility for the maintenance of international peace and security.

Studies for each agenda item outline important developments in the period under review and include summaries of public discussions in the Council, Secretary-General’s reports and other documents considered during Council meetings. Each study features the full text (1946-1999) or summaries (2000-present) of resolutions, presidential statements or other decisions adopted by the Council under a particular agenda item.
