Topic A

Reformation of the United
Nations Peacekeeping Force

Managed by the department of peacekeeping operations, UN Peacekeeping is responsible for monitoring and observing peace processes in post-conflict areas and assisting ex-combatants in implementing peace agreements. This can be done in several ways, including confidence-building measures, power-sharing arrangements, electoral support, strengthening the rule of law, and economic and social development. Soldiers, police officers, and civilian personnel all can be a part of the UN Peacekeeping unit.

Topic B

International Labour Standards

With over 3 billion individuals employed across the globe, issues concerning labour ethicality and international labour standards are more prevalent than ever. Since 1919, the International Labour Organization (ILO) has maintained and developed a system of international labour standards aimed at promoting opportunities for women and men to obtain decent and productive work, in conditions of freedom, equity, security, and dignity.

Created and initially set to devise international standards of labour to contribute to lasting peace, the ILO has created global standards benefit international development, as well as mitigates adverse effects of international market competition. In the current ever-growing economy, international labour standards are an essential component in the international framework for ensuring that the growth of the global economy provides benefits to all.

The Sixth Committee, also known as LEGAL, is the primary forum for the consideration of legal questions in the General Assembly. Its mandate consists of promoting the development of public international law and its codification. All of the United Nations Member States are entitled to representation on LEGAL as one of the main committees of the General Assembly.

Established on February 13th 1946, LEGAL provides a unified central legal service for the many other organs of the United Nations. The Sixth Committee has universal membership; all member states of the United Nations are de jure members of LEGAL. The committee not only contributes to the progressive development and codification of international public and trade law, but also, following Article 102 of the UN Charter, registers, publishes, and serves as a depository of international treaties. Practice following the mentioned article has interpreted this provision as a broad authorization to elaborate new treaties on the widest range of issues, to adopt them, and to recommend them to states for their subsequent signature, ratification, and accession.

Besides its LEGAL also functions to promote the strengthening and development as well as the effective implementation of the international legal order for the seas and oceans.
