Agenda

In 2024, we have the following Official Agenda:

BEGINNER committees

Disarmament & International Security Committee (DISEC)

Chaired by Vilmos Eiben and Eszter Bányai
  • Measures to further de-escalate nuclear tensions

    De-escalating nuclear tensions is critical for global security and stability. As countries expand and modernize their nuclear arsenals, the risk of conflicts and misunderstandings increases, potentially leading to catastrophic consequences. Efforts to reduce nuclear threats involve diplomatic negotiations, arms control treaties, and reducing the reliance on nuclear weapons in national defense strategies. Initiatives such as the Non-Proliferation Treaty and various disarmament dialogues have been pivotal, yet continuous and innovative diplomatic efforts are needed to address emerging challenges. This encompasses establishing communication channels, transparency measures, and mutual trust-building exercises among nuclear-armed states to ensure a safer world for future generations.

United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP)

Chaired by Eszter Szabó and Cintia Kozma
  • Measures to protect and restore marine biodiversity

    Our seas are under increasing threat from pollution, climate change and overfishing, the rate at which biodiversity is being lost globally is accelerating and is almost at a tipping point. Moreover, it is anticipated that the growing global population and the estimated effects of human activity will further strain the environment. An international effort is needed to tackle these challenges. It is important to implement legislations outside of national borders for the preservation and sustainable use of marine biodiversity. Our oceans are in desperate need of sustainable fishing practices, reduction of pollution and plastic waste, conservation of critical habitats such as coral reefs and mangroves.

United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO)

Chaired by Laura Breier and Virág Sipka
  • Measures for the preservation of culture with special regards to possible repatriation of stolen artifacts throughout the colonial era

    Preserving culture is one of, if not the most important step in protecting the unique identity, heritage and history of communities around the world. Throughout history, many cultural artifacts have been removed, relocated or stolen, especially during the colonial era, depriving indigenous people of their identity and heritage. Nowadays, the reunification of nations and their artifacts has drawn great attention to the problem of repatriating such relics, as many nations seek to recover their cultural treasures. However, this being a complex issue, returning such artifacts is not the only challenge that needs to be faced, as cultural preservation further requires a delicate balance between addressing historical injustices and promoting intercultural relations, while respecting the rightful owners of these irreplaceable pieces of heritage.

INTERMEDIATE committees

Commission on the Status of Women (CSW)

Chaired by Luca Boros and Stefania-Alecsia Coser
  • Measures to improve the percentage of working women with special regards to the Middle East

    The participation of women in the workforce is a crucial aspect of economic and social development, especially in the Middle East where cultural, legal, and social factors have historically influenced the roles women play in society. Enhancing the percentage of working women in this region involves understanding and addressing these unique challenges while promoting policies and initiatives that empower women economically and socially. This endeavor is not only a matter of gender equality but also of economic necessity, as the inclusion of women in the workforce can lead to greater economic growth, innovation, and stability.

United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC)

Chaired by Benjamin Line and Andrei-Gabriel Miclaus
  • Developing a comprehensive framework for workforce automatization with special regards to the ethical implication of such practices and taking initiatives on providing reskilling education for affected workers

    The automatization of the workforce calls for urgent action from the United Nations. With the integration and the exponential development of Artificial Intelligence (such as ChatGPT), concerns may arise about potential job displacements across various fields of work. This committee will focus on taking proactive measures and creating a common framework that resolves these apprehensions, ensuring reskilling education for affected workers, while also supporting the controlled adaptation of such new technologies in the future.

Human Rights Council (HRC)

Chaired by Míra Schleicher-Nagy and Lujza Lukács
  • Measures to ensure freedom of speech and freedom of press on a global scale

    Freedom of speech and freedom of press permit individuals, communities and organizations to communicate their opinions and thoughts without the fear of censorship or retaliation. These values are fundamental human rights recognized by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the United Nations, yet this may go unnoticed by governments. Authorities around the world turn to punish and imprison activists and journalists for speaking out, and censorship is often used to silence people. It is crucial to establish a strong legal framework to protect journalists and activists while also promoting media literacy in order to uphold these values, which are the cornerstones of freedom and democracy.

Security Council (SC)

Chaired by Alec Le Maire and Mihály Jirkovszky-Bari
  • Measures to de-escalate the long-lasting tensions between India and Pakistan

    The long-standing tensions between India and Pakistan, primarily rooted in historical, territorial, and political disputes, have significant regional and global implications. De-escalating these tensions is crucial for regional stability, economic development, and the well-being of millions of people in both nations. The complexity of India-Pakistan relations necessitates a multifaceted approach to peace-building and conflict resolution, involving bilateral dialogues, international mediation, confidence-building measures, and people-to-people contact.
