Welcome note by head of EC

Non-state militants rise. A government shuns democracy in civil war. Innocent civilians die; as the fate of the world hangs in fragile balance, only informed, calculated and paradigm-changing decisions can restore peace. And here comes the most powerful, yet elite and smallest committee of the United Nations –The Security Council. This year the Security Council will be looking at two topics, the first being the protection of civilians in armed conflicts. In the case of armed conflicts the individuals most adversely affected are the civilians. Though the UNAMA has mandated clauses for the same, we at theSecurity Council firmly believe that for significant change to be evident, binding resolutions need to be put in place.The second topic we will be debating upon is the rise of terrorism in North Africa. After the ideology of the Islamic State gained momentum in the 2010’s, it spread across North Africa like wild fire. This caused and persists to cause a threat to global security and equires immediate attention in order to prevent the further spread of the same and countering the non-state organizations from gaining control of the anarchic parts of Africa. With these topics we hope to see fiery debates and effective participation from all of our delegates. We at the Security Council look forward to producing solutions that are practical, authentic and efficient but at the same time not driven by vested interests but rather through genuine will towards global change.

Committee Session

Day 1

Today is the first day of GSMUN. Delegates are very much exited for the sessions. During the session today the roll call was taken followed by the speeches by the delegates about their respective countries. Every delegate gave a brief information about where the particular delegate’s country stands in MUN, in the world, on the sustainability and what that particular country created solutions in order to prevent a certain environment problem. Then the delegate of UK presented a resolution on the topic “Virtual Water Trade”. The co-submitters were the delegates of France, Germany, USA, India, Australia. The UN representative directly countered the delegate of UK by going against the whole resolution continuously for 5 minutes. The representative of World Bank gave a false statement about the country UAE. But the delegate of UAE didn’t agree with it. So the delegate of UAE countered the representative of World Bank stating that the point given by the World Bank is totally invalid providing a proper proof or justification. The UN representative had strong evidences against the topic by which the resolution failed which was presented by the delegate of UK. The session ends there.

Day 2

During the morning session today, firstly the roll call was taken. The resolution was presented by the delegate of USA on the topic minimizing the crime against wildlife, forest and natural resources. There were many point of information by the delegates of different countries. The opening statement was provided by the delegate of Mexico for the topic. The delegate of Mexico supported almost three topics from the resolution. Then the co-submitters were UK, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, France. There were three amendments proposed by the delegates of Russia, UAE and the UN representative. The amendments of Russia and UN representative was passed. The amendment of Russia was short and simple. But, the amendment stated by the UN representative was to strike off three clauses and that was approved as there were delegates for the amendment. As this happened 70% of the resolution was stroked hence, the resolution of USA failed. The press of the committee would like to tell that the information provided by the delegates was really very good and impressive. There were about 10 UN representatives who were against the topic or the resolution. They influenced and enlighten the committee by failing the resolution by giving proper, justified answers which would surely the resolution. The co- submitters did not involve much as they were opposed badly by the UN representatives and some of the other
delegates Germany, Russia, UAE, China and Canada. The session was bit more interesting compared to the other session which took place.
