Agenda Item: The Usage of Autonomous Weapons in Armed Conflicts
The Disarmament and International Security Committee (DISEC) stands as one of the six principal organs of the United Nations General Assembly, dedicated to addressing global challenges related to disarmament and security. Comprising member states from around the world, DISEC plays a pivotal role in fostering dialogue, promoting cooperation, and formulating resolutions aimed at mitigating the proliferation of conventional and unconventional weapons. With a focus on international peace and security, DISEC serves as a crucial platform for nations to collaborate, negotiate, and strategize, working collectively to maintain global stability and prevent conflicts.
The agenda item of the usage of autonomous weapons in armed conflicts presents a multifaceted challenge demanding careful consideration from the international community. As nations increasingly explore the integration of artificial intelligence into military systems, fundamental concerns arise regarding the security and trustworthiness of autonomous technologies. The prospect of machines making life-and-death decisions raises ethical questions, urging nations to grapple with the moral implications of delegating critical choices to algorithms. Additionally, technological issues such as potential third-party access that could lead to anonymous war crimes add complexity to the discourse. Amidst these challenges, DISEC delegates are tasked with exploring comprehensive solutions, focusing on legal frameworks, ethical considerations, and international cooperation to ensure the responsible development and deployment of autonomous weapons, thereby safeguarding global security and upholding humanitarian values.

The Special Political and Decolonization Committee (SPECPOL), which is the fourth of the six main committees of the United Nations General Assembly, tackles a diverse set of political issues from UN peacekeeping efforts to peaceful uses of outer space. It was created in 1993 in accordance with the General Assembly Resolution 47/233 in order to deal with issues such as self-determination, decolonization and other international security concerns which DISEC (UNGA-1) could not handle due to their complexity. Since the committee’s establishment, SPECPOL gave most of its time to addressing the political issues in the Middle East, such as the territorial disputes in Western Sahara and Palestine.

Case: Application of the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide (Bosnia and Herzegovina v. Serbia and Montenegro)
The International Court of Justice is the main judicial organ of the United Nations. It was established in June 1945 by the Charter of the United Nations and began work in April 1946. Currently, the International Court of Justice is located at the Peace Palace in The Hague, Netherlands. It is comprised of fifteen judges serving nine-year terms, rotating five seats every three years. Besides, the primary intent of the International Court of Justice is to settle international legal disputes between states and to give advisory opinions to the other organs of the United Nations.
On March 20, 1993, the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina initiated legal proceedings against the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia regarding a dispute related to alleged breaches of the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide. This convention was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on December 9, 1948, along with various interconnected issues as claimed by Bosnia and Herzegovina. The Application cited Article IX of the Genocide Convention as the primary jurisdictional basis for the International Court of Justice. Additionally, Bosnia and Herzegovina also invoked several other grounds for jurisdiction.

Agenda Item: Falklands War
A Joint Crisis Committee, or JCC for short, differs from a regular General Assembly (GA) commitee due to several factors such as: Having an almost completely different procedure, writing multiple documents (directives) within not just throughout the conference but within sessions, responding to immediate problems and issues in a matter of minutes, and debating fiercely whileas implementing changes. Joint crisis committees are spontaneous, intense, loud, and even chaotic at times. They require constant heavy attention and a certain amount of background knowledge related to the subject matter.
The Falklands War was a short, undeclared war between Argentina and the United Kingdom in 1982, over the sovereignty of the Falkland Islands, South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands. After the diplomatic tensions between the two countries peaked as Argentina raised their flags over the rather remote aforementioned islands, the British swiftly responded with a major naval task force and a task force consisting of about 20,000 troops, as well as declaring a Total Exclusion Zone (TEZ), covering a circle of radius 200 nautical miles from the centre of the Falkland Islands. The conflict lasted for about two months, resulting in the British standing supreme and Prime Minister Thatcher achieving a landslide victory, while the Argentinian military junta collapsed, paving the path for a new democratic rule in the nation.
It still disputed whether the rights of the island belong to Argentina or the United Kingdom. Additionally, C-24 has been considering the Falklands since 1964, constantly inviting both parties to find a peaceful resolution through negotiations, and in 2020, United Nations General Assembly reaffirmed that the question of the Falkland Islands would remain on its agenda for consideration.

Agenda Item: Strengthening NATO’s relationships with non-member states and international organizations in the concept of international security and technological development.
The North Atlantic Treaty Organization is a military cooperation agreement between 31 European and North American countries. The scope of the organization is to ensure safety and preserve the independence of member states in accordance with the North Atlantic Treaty of 1949. The North Atlantic Treaty Organization was established on the principle of collective defense, which is to defend the member state against any type of external party, in order to achieve this goal.
In the context of global security and technological advancement, NATO's relationships with non-member states and international organizations must be strengthened if it is to effectively address today's security challenges. Collaboration among organizations supports initiatives to increase global security by fostering knowledge transfer, team research, and technology transfer. By cooperating with non-members and international organizations, NATO can take advantage of a variety of skills, improve early warning systems, and collectively respond to new threats like cyberattacks and hybrid warfare. This cooperation not only contributes to a more interconnected and secure world but also facilitates the exchange of innovative technologies and strategies, ensuring NATO and its partners remain at the forefront of international security and technological development.

Agenda Item: Assessing the Current Situation of Child Labor
UNICEF, the United Nations International Children's Fund, epitomizes the global commitment to safeguarding children's rights. Established by the UN General Assembly, UNICEF is entrusted with the vital mission of defending the most vulnerable children worldwide, those who have endured the harshest trials such as war, natural catastrophes, severe poverty, abuse, and exploitation. UNICEF provides specialized care to these young souls, addressing their unique needs and ensuring they receive the support necessary for physical, mental, and emotional growth. Through dedicated programs and tireless advocacy, UNICEF champions children's rights, striving to guarantee access to education, healthcare, and nurturing environments, fundamental for their holistic development.
The agenda under consideration is a poignant reflection of the harsh realities faced by countless children globally: the persisting challenge of child labor. Child labor, defined as the engagement of children in work that deprives them of their youth, integrity, and opportunities for education and social interaction, continues to cast a shadow over childhoods. Despite international efforts, children are still subjected to hazardous work, robbing them of essential experiences, including play, education, and a safe environment. This committee convenes with the solemn duty of delving into the current state of child labor, investigating its root causes, examining existing policies, and devising innovative, comprehensive strategies to eliminate this plight. Delegates are called upon to harness their collective wisdom and empathy, forging paths toward a future where every child can embrace the fullness of childhood, free from exploitation and deprivation.

Agenda Item: Eradicating Corruption and Implementing Anti-Corruption Measures to be Adopted
The Social, Humanitarian, and Cultural Committee (SOCHUM), known as the Third Committee of the United Nations General Assembly, plays a crucial role in addressing a wide array of social, human rights, and cultural issues. Established in 1945, SOCHUM focuses on promoting international cooperation to tackle challenges related to human rights, social development, and cultural preservation. With a mandate that spans issues such as poverty, education, and human rights violations, SOCHUM is dedicated to fostering a world where the inherent dignity and equal rights of all members of the human family are recognized and upheld.
The current agenda for the Social, Humanitarian, and Cultural Committee (SOCHUM) centers on the meticulous task of eradicating corruption and implementing precise anti-corruption measures on a global scale. Corruption, being a pervasive and multifaceted issue, hampers sustainable development, undermines the rule of law, and erodes public trust in institutions. SOCHUM is set to deliberate on a range of technical strategies and policy frameworks aimed at not only rooting out corruption but also establishing robust anti-corruption mechanisms. Topics of discussion include the enhancement of financial transparency, strengthening legal frameworks, and fostering international collaboration to share best practices and intelligence on combating corruption. The committee recognizes the need for targeted, evidence-based interventions that address the specific challenges posed by corruption in various sectors, with the ultimate goal of fostering a global environment characterized by integrity, accountability, and ethical governance.
