UN GA 4th Committee: The Special Political and Decolonization Committee

I. Sino – Indian Border Dispute
II. The Situation in Nagorno-Karabakh Region

The Special Political and Decolonization Committee (SPECPOL) is the fourth committee out of the six committees of the United Nations General Assembly. When it was created in 1993, the main goal of the committee was to address the significant political matters which the first committee,  Disarmament and International Security Committee, was not able to grasp such as self-determination and decolonization and other specific international security concerns. Later on, the Question of Palestine was included in the topics which  SPECPOL was primarily dealing with. Additionally, the committee deals with a diverse pool of issues such as but not limited to decolonization, peacekeeping, atomic radiation, mine action,  race in the outer space, the University of Peace, public information and the special political missions. In KMUN 2019, delegates of SPECPOL will be taking the matters into their hands to find viable solutions for the Sino-Indian border dispute and the situation in the Nagorno-Karabakh region. During the sessions, delegates will have to compromise to exchange ideas and opinions on what they believe that will be the best approach to the issues in order to resolve the aforementioned disputes.
