Special Political and Decolonization Committee

General Assembly

Topic A

Development of Autonomous Measures and Proposals for
Non Self-Governing Territories

The founding of the United Nations on October 24, 1945, marked the beginning of not only the international relations system that we use today, but it also marked the end of the European imperialism. From 1945 throughout the rest of the 20th century, colonies all over the world would see themselves become independent. However, despite the decolonization that happened throughout the world, there are still regions today that still exist in a state of limbo. These regions are known as Non-Self-Governing Territories.

Topic B

Preservation of Civil Order
Against Mass Protests

Protesting has served as the desperate remedy to political and societal objection since the beginnings of governmental ruling. Throughout history, mass protests were littered at the fall of numerous great empires having exploited its people. Democratic systems of government have had protesting as a cornerstone of its functioning. Protestors engage in collective demonstrations to express concerns and instigate reform; it is a method of placing checks and balances on the government. It is exclusively used after alternative methods have been exhausted but to no avail. This is highly critical to groups whose aspirations are poorly represented or dismissed. Protesting give a voice to those which neither have a platform nor the privilege to directly influence government. It cultivates a culture of engaged, well-informed citizens willing to participate in public affairs.

The Special Political and Decolonization Committee specializes in a multitude of different subject areas including topics related to human rights, peacekeeping, decolonization, outer space as well as atomic radiation. SPECPOL is the fourth committee of the six main United Nations General Assemblies specifically catered toward beginner level delegates to discuss and resolve issues regarding social, political, and economic development worldwide.

Delegates at this conference will closely examine and discuss two very relevant topics: Maintenance of Civil Order Against Mass Protests (Topic A), and Developing Autonomous Measures and Proposals for Non-Self-Governing Territories (Topic B). All delegates are expected to fully immerse themselves during committee sessions and come up with peaceful resolutions to the above problems by the end of the conference.
