2017 Theme:

Transborder Security and Sustainable Development

We are happy to present to you this years theme of Stockholm Model United Nations 2017. Our committees are varied and suit everyone from beginners to veterans. We have strived to come up with topics which are not often discussed and are important to international relations and human rights. We have classed the committees into three difficulty levels, so that delegates can easily find the best balance between topics and expected preparation levels. Stay tuned for more information about the committees for Stockholm Model United Nations 2017.

Topic 1: Non Refoulement principle and the exemptions- refugee protection in danger?
The principle of non-refoulement has been considered as one of the most important within immigration law. All countries are bound by the prohibition of sending back refugees to countries where their lives may be threatened because of their religion, race, nationality, membership of a social group or political opinion. However, there are exemptions. If the national security is threatened or a serious crime is committed, the protection that comes with this principle could be taken away.
Having sovereignty and national security on one side and refugee protection on the other, makes this a controversial matter. However, referring to a matter of national security may not be used as an excuse for not providing asylum. How can we make sure that the safety of the refugees is not threatened by prioritising national security? UNHCR calls for a discussion regarding this matter.

 

Topic 2: Living Conditions in Refugee Camps
The growing numbers of refugees is one of the most concerning issues in the world today. Therefore, discussions on how to deal with mass movements are crucial. Today, there are 65.3 million forcibly displaced people in the world according to UNHCR. A number big as
the whole population in the UK. However, it is not only a big number, these are actual people that are in a great need of protection.
UNHCR is playing a key role, proving hundreds of people with shelter every day. Within the refugee camps they can get a temporary safe space. Still, people are lacking access to sanitary, education, nutrition and other basic human rights within the refugee camps. For example, only 51% of the camps can provide enough water. Malnutrition among children is common, leading to a delayed childhood development. What needs to be done in order to improve the situation of the refugees in the world? It’s our duty as members of UN to confront the problems with living conditions in refugee camps in order to find solutions and strategies for the work of UNHCR.
