In the final part of our podcast series we highlight one of the biggest failures in the history of the UN. A conflict that raise emotions in many of us, but no matter which side you take or if you chose not to take sides at all, there is one undeniable fact: THE INFLUENCE OF THE VETO in the Israeli–Arab conflict.

Core Concerns

The Veto Cast
Core Concerns
/

In today’s episode of The Veto Cast we highlight the concept of Core Concerns. This is a formulation created by Stop Illegitmate Vetoes to define on what grounds a veto can be used legitimately.

The core concerns of a state is to remain secure for its citizens while being recognized as a sovereign country. A malicious Security Council without the veto could, in a worst case scenario, challenge a state’s security and sovereignty through actions and decisions. The veto was put in place to guarantee the permanent members that this would not happen – but today, the veto is used for many more reasons than to protect the core concerns.

In the case of Ukraine the veto was not in line with neither core concerns nor the UN charter. The motives behind the veto and what Russia frames as national interests is explained by Elena Namli, professor of ethics at Uppsala University. With the help of Eduard Dyachuk we explore the complicated relationship between Ukraine and Russia.

Join the veto cast as we we guide you on the complicated road of international law.
