General Assembly Fourth Committee – Special Political and Decolonization (SPECPOL)
The Special Political and Decolonization Committee, The General Assembly Fourth Committee, was established with the purpose of addressing political issues such as postcolonial development, border disputes, UN peacekeepers, and self-determination. SPECPOL covers a wide variety of topics, and thus has one of the larger jurisdictions of the General Assembly Committees. From neocolonialism to cyber security to refugees, this committee helps ensure the well-being and progress of all states on a variety of unique and important political issues in the international community. As a part of the United Nations, SPECPOL’s ultimate goal is to maintain international peace and security and work towards establishing fair and just international law. Our task as a committee is to create comprehensive and well researched solutions in order to alleviate these problems and provide direction for how to prevent similar issues arising.
Topic A: Territorial disputes in South American Indigenous Lands
Topic B: Peacekeeping and rebuilding in post-conflict states
