Big-Alabo, Tamunopubo, Okechukwu S. Amadi.


The paper analyzed the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) which is the organ that is charged with maintenance of peace and security around the world. It is expected that the UNSC is supposed to bring about peace in the Syria civil war. This paper examined the inability of the UNSC to resolve the Syria civil war which has led to worsening the security situation. Consequently, data for the study were sourced through secondary sources like, journal articles, textbooks, magazines, newspapers and Internet materials. Data generated was analyzed using content analysis, although tables and figures were presented where necessary. Facts drawn from these sources were carefully examined in order to establish a logical trend from there, conclusions were drawn. The paper found out that the measures taken were not far reaching to bring an end to the Syria civil war by bringing about peace and security and UNSC members are faced with inhibiting factors which has prolong the Syria civil war thereby leading to deaths of innocent civilians. The paper recommended among other things that any resolution that should be passed by the UNSC concerning the Syria civil war should be one that has been agreed upon in good faith to end the war and the UNSC permanent membership should be expanded as this could help enhance its authority and modifying the right of veto, thereby making adoption of a resolution and the prospects of enforcement possible.
