This chapter describes how the UN Security Council’s meetings are conducted, along with the participation of Member States in those meetings. It also considers the participation of non-Council Member States of the United Nations and States which are not UN members, together with individuals invited to participate in Council proceedings, including officials from Palestine and Yugoslavia. In addition, the Rules of Procedure that govern the order of speakers in Council meetings is discussed. The chapter also looks at the ‘right of reply’ or ‘further statements’; motions, proposals, and suggestions; ‘blue draft resolutions’ and order of submission; and non-member submission and co-sponsorship of resolutions. Finally, it provides an overview of other aspects of Council proceedings such as amendments, points of order, precedence motions, rulings by the Council President, and ‘stopping the clock’ procedure.

Keywords:   meetings, UN Security Council, Member States, United Nations, Rules of Procedure, right of reply, blue draft resolutions, points of order, precedence motions, stopping the clock
