GA 6: Legal Committee
The Legal Committee is the sixth and the last committee out of the committees of the United Nations General Assembly. Its primary duty is to provide an evaluation regarding the accountability within the international law. As outlined in article 13 of the UN Charter, its main aspiration is to promote the swift and transparent implementation of the international laws and universally ratified conventions. Alongside its main duty, the sixth committee has other purposes which are not limited to addressing the issues regarding international relations, trade and terrorism, and disputes between states and organizations. Processing the international collaboration regarding the question of the implementation of the international law within the ratification and compliance of the member states was the reason of the establishment of the sixth committee. This year, the delegates of Legal Committee will be deliberating the issues of reviewing the role of mass and social media in regard to the manipulation of the election process and politics; consideration of effective measures to enhance the protection, security and safety of diplomatic and consular missions along with the representatives; and question of constitutional rights granted to the war refugees.
