According to the UN charter, all of the Member States are obliged to respect every Council’s decision; said decisions require a majority of at least nine votes to be approved.

Besides Permanent Members, the Council provides for the participation of 10 non-permanent Members that are elected on behalf of the UN State Members. The 10 non-permanent Members are elected with a two-year term of office.

Over the years, Italy concurred with determination to the elaboration of the General Assembly and Security Council’s Resolutions, that gave life to major innovations in terms of international regulations. Campaigns in favour of the moratorium of the death penalty; the promotion of gender equality and women and children’s rights; battles against every kind of religious discrimination and in favour of freedom of thought - these are some of the issued that involved our country. Italy has also shared its responsibility arising from collective security, already fulfilling a consecutive six-time role of non-permanent member of UN Security Council,  and participating in peace operations; on November 1st began Italy’s presidency of the UN Security Council.

The Italian Presidency agenda is particularly tight. Amongst the most important appointments, Libya’s briefing (November 16th) and the security challenges briefing in the Mediterranean  (November 17th) will be chaired by Ministry of Foreign Affairs and of International Cooperation Angelino Alfano and will be attended by General Secretary Guterres and ONU Special Representative for Libya, Salamè.

Italy founded its candidacy on the given contribute, and is able to continue to offering to the international community: its mass media communication; conflict prevention activities and promotion of dialogue as a main instrument to their resolution; commitment in UN’s peace operations; knowledge of the Mediterranean Sea and its dynamics, given the international importance; human rights, fundamental freedoms and Rule of Law’s promotion.

On 30 November, there will be a briefing on the "Destruction and trafficking of cultural heritage by terrorist groups and in situations of armed conflict", one of the main themes of the Italian mandate. There will also be numerous other events dealt with in November in accordance with the frequency established by the Council. They mainly involve updates on a number of situations in the following countries: The Central African Republic, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Sudan/Darfur, Libya, Burundi, Syria (regarding three different fronts: chemical weapons, humanitarian and political matters), the Middle East, as well as discussions on sanctions against North Korea.

Italy will be a non-permanent member throughout 2017, while in 2018 it will be replaced by the Netherlands: the two countries made agreements on dividing the 2017-2018 term, given the equal footing reached in June 2016 elections.
