Why do some scholars and experts believe permanent membership on the United Nations security council is outdated?
Scholars and experts believe permanent membership on the security council is outdated because some current states with permanent membership are no longer world powers and permanent membership can allow certain states to veto action against permanent members. The states with permanent security council membership are China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom, and the United States. While France and the UK were world powers at the time of the UN's inception, some argue that other nations, such as India and Brazil, being BRIC countries are better suited for permanent membership. Additionally, since permanent membership allows permanent members strong veto power, other scholars and experts believe power as permanent members can be abused and hinder the impact of the UN.
