As stated in the terms of the United Nations Charter, the UN Security Council has primary responsibility for "the maintenance of international peace and security." Given the importance of the Council, it is not surprising to find that its online presence affords visitors the ability to view live streaming webcasts of its proceedings, and that many of the materials are available in six different languages. Visitors to the site will find it well-organized and that they will have access to information about the members of the Security Council, along with detailed voting records of each member nation, plus frequent news updates on their activities. For many visitors, the section containing the Secretary-General's Report will be a place to visit several times. Here they will find a number of detailed reports on the various peace-keeping missions initiated by the UN and potentially volatile situations around the world.
