Dear Delegates,

Created in 1945 under the United Nations Charter, the General Assembly is one of the six main organs of the UN. It comprises 193 member states and was established to provide a crucial forum for international negotiations and crisis resolution; thus it lacks the power to make demands and rather, recommends actions, sets standards, and initiates research. The Special Political and Decolonization Committee, better known as SPECPOL, is the United Nations General Assembly’s fourth main standing committee. Consequently, the commission deals with a broad range of political topics, such as peacekeeping and decolonization. Over the ensuing decades after its establishment, the committee has investigated issues such as refugees and human rights, outer space,  mine action, atomic radiation and public information.

 

SPECPOL’s agenda allows for its subject matter to be both highly interesting and varied. Hence, we expect our delegates to demonstrate an exceptional level of understanding regarding the topics through the exploitation of their debate and investigation skills. Additionally, you will be required to think critically in order to solve complex issues in the face of controversial stances. Most importantly, we encourage you to be an active participant, and to ask for help whenever needed, so that you may enjoy this experience as much as possible.

 

Yours sincerely, 

Samuel Lundy & Ana Marcela Ramírez
