The quest for the democratization of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) is one of the most critical issues that has confronted the United Nations (UN) system for the better part of the organization’s existence. To this end, this paper examines the call for the democratization of the UNSC and the challenges thereof. It argues that the attempts to democratize the UNSC has been unsuccessful due to fact that the UNSC was not designed to be a democratic organ from its inception. The paper submits that a democratically constituted UNSC will lead to chaos and disorder in the international system.
