All General Assemblies are Double Delegation, meaning each position will be represented by two delegates.
The First Committee: Disarmament and International Security (DISEC)
Disarmament and International Security (DISEC), is the First Assembly of the UN and is responsible for disarmament, global challenges and threats to peace that affect the international community. The First Assembly’s goal is to seek out solutions to the current global chemical weapon problem and to regulate the intervention of foreign countries regarding domestic affairs in the Middle East.
The Third Committee: Social, Humanitarian & Cultural (SOCHUM)
The Social, Humanitarian, and Cultural Committee (SOCHUM) is a committee that closely examines human rights issues and humanitarian affairs that impact people all over the world. Two important areas of focus in this committee will be on the violations of prisoner’s human rights and illegal adoption and child trafficking. It will be up to delegates to discuss the best ways to address these topics.
The Fourth Committee: Special Political and Decolonization (SPECPOL)
The Special Political and Decolonization Committee (SPECPOL) is the fourth of six main committees in the UN General Assembly. Arguably one of the most important committees, SPECPOL oversees a wide range of issues including those related to decolonization, peace keeping operations, mine action, uses of outer space, atomic radiation, and Palestinian refugees and human rights. The two topics that will be discussed for this session will be violence against women in refugee camps and restructuring peacekeeping operations.
United Nations Child's Fund (UNICEF)
The United Nations International Children’s Fund (UNICEF) is a United Nations program that provides humanitarian relief to mothers and their children in developing nations. With a focus on national resource scarcity, delegates must grapple with pertinent and potential problems affecting children, that arise due to a lack of resources. Two important topics of discussion for this committee will be regulating education in conflict zones and the current sanitation and nutrition crisis in Yemen.
World Health Organization (WHO)
The World Health Organization (WHO) is a specialized agency of the United Nations that has the role of managing international health. Given the nature of this committee and its goals of building a better and healthier future for the world, natural resources are a necessity in supporting countries to reach and maintain health policies and objectives. The two topics the committee will touch upon will be antimicrobial resistance and health impacts of air pollution. It will be up to the delegates to work together to come to a solution to these global issues.
