Redesigned Security Council website launched

Posted: Tuesday, 9 October 2012, New York | Author: Department of Political Affairs


Following collaboration between the Department of Political Affairs (Security Council Affairs Division) and the Department of Public Information (Web Services Section), a re-designed website for the Security Council was launched on 4 October. The new website, which is available in all six official languages and accessible to persons with disabilities, features an improved user-friendly layout and additional content.

As well as providing the latest news from the Security Council and its President, the site offers quick and easy access to the most recent Security Council resolutions, Presidential Statements and press releases. Records of Security Council meetings, past and present, and details on the Council’s subsidiary bodies can also be found on the new website.

The site also provides information on the work of the Security Council Affairs Division of DPA and highlights the substantive and logistical support provided to the Security Council and its subsidiary bodies as well as information on the research and guidance role played by the Division. In addition, the Repertoire of the Practice of the Security Council, also available in all six languages, has been fully integrated into the website.

The site is an ideal tool for Member States, staff members and any other visitors who wish to know more about the workings of the Security Council. A new FAQ section contains practical information regarding the composition of the Security Council, its mandate and its functions and powers.
