The UN Security Council in an Era of Great-Power Rivalry

The Security Council is almost as divided as it was during the Cold War, with China and Russia on one side and the Western powers on the other. The Council still carries out important work on peacekeeping and other issues, but it has been paralyzed in Syria and in other crisis spots. What’s more, the five permanent members are seen as increasingly unrepresentative of world power. Is the Council doomed to drift towards irrelevance?
