Keep track of the latest from the Security Council Report with this compact app for your iPhone and iPod Touch.
Security Council Report (SCR) is an independent not-for-profit organisation. It was founded on the belief that consistent, balanced, high-quality information about the activities of the UN Security Council and its subordinate bodies is essential to the effective performance of the Council and that this information should also be available to a wider group of stakeholders and the general public.
To that end, SCR publishes an objective and analytical monthly report on the Council’s current and prospective programme of work (Monthly Forecasts). This is supplemented by longer published reports on key thematic issues on the agenda of the Council (Cross-Cutting Reports) and a “real-time” electronic feed of insights on developments in the Council (whatsinblue.org). Through its more ad hoc Special Research Reports, SCR also covers developments that deserve particular attention but do not fit the timelines or templates of our other published products.
Upon request, SCR works with incoming Council members on a one to one basis to assist with capacity-building on Council practice and procedure. More widely SCR works with Council members and a range of stakeholders to deepen the analysis of issues before the Council. SCR is neutral and does not take positions on the substance of issues before the Council.
