About the Committee:
The Third General Assembly of the United Nations, also known as the Social, Humanitarian, and Cultural Committee (SOCHUM), is the primary organ of the United Nations that concerns the investigation and resolution of crises that compromise the preservation of humanity and culture. As delegates on this committee, you will be at the crux of the situation in the Sahel, determining the fate of the region. You will be tasked with presenting your country’s position, working collaboratively with other delegates, and ultimately providing impactful solutions. Instead of creating broad, blanket solutions for the entire humanitarian issue, you will create specific, well-researched solutions for three categories of issues that will be debated in-depth in committee: protection from and combating terrorism, housing and integration of refugees, and the implementation and administration of humanitarian aid. We can’t wait for what we know will be an amazing conference!
