The power balance between permanent and elected members of the UN Security Council continues to be a divisive issue. To bring various viewpoints together, the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung office in New York, in cooperation with the Academic Council on the United Nations System (ACUNS), and the One Earth Future Foundation organized a debate on the possibilities for non-permanent members of the Security Council to influence the Council’s policies.  The event, hosted by the Permanent Mission of Australia to the UN, kicked off with a presentation by John Langmore on Australia’s experience as an elected member to the Security Council in 2013-2014. In the following, representatives from member states, civil society, and academia exchanged their ideas on the topic.
