: Discuss the US and UK’s intervention in Iraq in 2003 in terms of whether it was authorised by the United Nations Security Council under Chapter VII of the UN Charter.
At first glance, it seems an essay question but it’s actually a mix of both essay and problem question. Generally, a problem question includes a scenario. Here, the scenario/problem is UK and Us’s intervention in Iraq and whether it was authorised by UN charter (chapter vII). The essay part is the discussion of Collective security system.
Answering a problem question in this area (General instruction from the university)
