An Evaluation Of The Effects Of International Anarchy On International Organisations: A Case Study Of The United Nations Security Council

ABSTRACT The study sought to examine how anarchy affects the international system, particularly in the UNSC organ that depicts the realists‘ model of world politics. The study relied on both scholarly literature and key UN documents, particularly the UN Charter to analyze and discuss how anarchy affects the functions and roles of the UNSC to maintain international peace and security in the world. It is an arena where states conduct their foreign policy through the national interest as well as a game of power politics, even at the heart of maintaining peace and security. The study found that even though the UN Charter gives every authority to the UNSC members to determine what threatens international peace and security with some limits, the mandate also inexplicably gives the powerful states the authority to translate or make certain decisions to their advantage, for instance, the use of the veto power. These decisions often lead to major crisis than promoting international peace, for example, the Iraqi war, the Gulf war, the Libya Crisis, which all escalated into global conflicts and are even yet to recover or achieve stability from the impact caused. The study recommended, among others, the elimination of the use of veto to make the UNSC more effective in its mandate as the organization can resort to decisions based on a simple majority or two thirds voting of all the member states.
