“The United Nations was not created to take mankind to heaven, but to save humanity from hell.”
– Dag Hammarskjöld, UN Secretary-General 1953-1961
Under the UN Charter, the Security Council is responsible for the maintenance of international peace and security. It is comprised of 15 members, and each member has one vote. The Security Council is the only organ that may impose sanctions or authorise the use of force to maintain or restore international peace and security.

Hi! I’m Luca, a political science student at the University of Zurich, and I’m very pleased to be chairing at this year’s edition of CologneMUN. Security Council at SMUN 2016 was my first conference experience and since then I’ve participated in three more SC simulations, either behind the chairing desk or as a delegate. Fun fact about myself: I absolutely adore socks with intricate patterns (or fruits, or animals), so be sure to bring your best sock game to our SC! I do have other passions too, though, such as painting, catching up on TV series (often simultaneously), and diving. I’ve never been to Cologne, so I look forward to discovering a new city and meeting everyone at CologneMUN this October!
My name is Daniel, 25, from Haifa, Israel.
I’m studying for MBA in Business & Economics at the University of Haifa and am a former student at Tel Aviv University. For the past two years, I have been actively involved in MUN and in my resume, I have been able to enter almost every role in the game, from delegating in my first simulation to the organization of the TLVMUN 2018 International Conference. Also, I take an active role as the academic coach for the RishonMUN Society.
Apart from the passion for the Model United Nations and work in the field of business, at nights you can find me Bar-tendering in the craziest and biggest club in northern Israel.
