Where can I find information about Security Council missions?
Last Updated: May 24, 2019     Views: 207

Missions consisting of representatives of members of the Security Council visiting the field have been happening since 1964, according to The Repertoire of Practice of the Security Council.

The Repertoire has information on missions made up of members of the Security Council itself, and those in which the Secretary-General was requested to undertake a mission on behalf of the Security Council. 

Terms of Reference of Security Council missions are available through the United Nations Digital Library, the online catalogue of UN documents and publications

A list of reports of the missions (1992 onwards) is available on the Security Council website.
