This chapter focuses on the decisions of the UN Security Council in the context of the UN Charter. It first describes the formats of decisions before turning to a discussion of Council documents which covers resolutions, statements and letters by the Council President, and monthly forecasts and the Council’s calendar. It then considers the reports of the Secretary-General, communications from private individuals and non-government organisations, and compendium documents. The chapter concludes with an analysis of decisions to recommend appointments of Secretaries-General, decisions relating to United Nations membership, and categories of the Council’s individual documents.
