United Nations Trusteeship Council


United Nations Trusteeship Council
One of the main organs of the UN, composed of the five permanent members of the Security Council.

It supervised the administration of trust (non-self-governing) territories, including former colonies in Africa and the Pacific. The council's job was to send inspection missions to the territories, examine petitions, review reports, and make recommendations. It suspended operations after the last trust territory, Palau, gained its sovereignty in 1994.
