This chapter summarizes the causes of informal groups of states and their effects on Security Council governance. It argues that those informal settings are changing the role of the UN Security Council in the international system. The functions of diplomatic problem-solving and its collective legitimization have become separate from one another. This has implications for the understanding of power, legitimacy, and change in the theory of international relations.

Keywords:   decentralization, decision-making, effectiveness, international relations theory, legitimacy, power, representativeness, Security Council reform, US exceptionalism
