Looks at the constitutional framework of the UN Security Council. It starts with a brief outline of its history, describing the first meeting of the body in London on 17 Jan 1946. The different sections of the chapter describe the role of the Security Council, its Charter, the rules of procedure (including a table showing the evolution of these rules), Security Council custom, and Security Council functions, which can be divided into three main groups — recommendations to the parties of a dispute; recommendations to the UN General Assembly; and mandatory (binding decisions).
