The Special Political and Decolonization Committee, otherwise known by its abbreviation, SPECPOL, is the fourth main standing committee of the General Assembly (GA) of the United Nations. SPECPOL was initially created to deal specifically with decolonization matters, as suggested by its full name, but it has come to concern itself with multiple political issues not directly dealt with by the mandates of other committees. The aforementioned committee deals with rigorous consideration and investigation surrounding a broad range of topics, spanning from peacekeeping, outer space, and public information to atomic radiation and refugees’ human rights. Even though the Special Political and Decolonization Committee in its current form was established as recently as 1993, the UN has executed its work for a long time prior to that. The Special Political and Decolonization Committee’s membership is open to every UN member state, all of which can take part in its meetings. Each of these nations count with one vote; all votes hold the same value during voting processes.
