Disarmament and International Security Committee (DISEC)
Gross human rights violations have brought the use of Private Military and Security Companies as a tool of foreign policy into the limelight. Heavily armed forces with limited accountability are the outcome of an increasingly privatized security sector. Violations committed by these forces outside of their home states are unregulated and go unpunished. PMSCs put the security of their own staff as well as that of civilians at risk. This committee will be discussing what steps can possibly be taken to solve this issue.
Economic and Financial Committee (ECOFIN)
Topic : Universal Access to Affordable, Reliable, Sustainable Energy.
Access to modern energy is fundamental for development and poverty reduction, yet many countries around the world are struggling to ensure affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy resources to meet their increasing energy demand. This poses significant economic, environmental, and social challenges. The committee will be exploring options on ensuring access to clean and sustainable energy for all, furthermore policies that can be undertaken towards achieving SDG Goal 7: Affordable and Clean Energy.
Special Political and Decolonization Committee (SPECPOL)
Description: Ten years after the adoption of the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, progress in several countries has been made by formally recognizing indigenous peoples, but overwhelmingly they continue to face discrimination, marginalization and major challenges in enjoying their basic rights. Indigenous peoples constitute a disproportionate 15 percent of the world’s poor whereas they are an estimated five percent of the world’s population. Their marginalization and social exclusion must be addressed to achieve the SDGs.
