CONFERENCE

- COMMITTEES -

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: Dealing with radicalization

Topic 2: Disarmament of nuclear weapons

Under-Secretary General: Silan Retki Badikanli 

Difficulty Level: Intermediate

Topic 1: Dealing with radicalization
For a while now, terrorist groups such as ISIL, Al-Qaeda and Boko Haram have shaped our image of violent extremism and thus demanded an active debate on how to address this threat against democracy and world peace. Their actions are an active challenge against our shared values of peace, justice and human dignity. The United Nations has previously and continuously worked on resolutions regarding the prohibition of violent extremism. The General Assembly urged the member states of the United Nations in 2006 to condemn terrorism in all its manifestations, to take urgent action to prevent terrorism, to implement all Security Council resolutions related to international terrorism and to cooperate fully with the counter-terrorism bodies of the Council.

The security council must find resolutions to prevent and combat terrorism, to urge member states to refrain from organizing, facilitating, financing or in any way tolerating terrorist activities within the borders of the individual member states. The security council must encourage relevant regional and subregional organizations to create and strengthen counter-terrorism mechanisms or centres, and thus to limit mechanisms or centres that might in any way foster radical behaviour that leads to violent extremism.
 

Topic 2: Disarmament of nuclear weapons

Arms limitation and disarmament have long been negotiated and discussed in the Security Council, and are still today considered to be of high priority. Treaties, conventions and resolutions have helped lead the way to international action - however, the constant threat to a nuclear war is still around us. In order to reach a stable world free from war, all States must refrain from conducting any nuclear weapons test, explosion or any other nuclear explosion. The Security Council needs to agree upon a resolution for the elimination of nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction. While it is a sovereign right of each State to withdraw from an instrument put out by the Security Council, provisions must be put in place to ensure that it is done in the most proper way, so that any withdrawal must be taken very seriously.

The Security council reinforced a resolution in order to ban nuclear testing in 2016, claiming that a world free of nuclear weapons starts by stopping the testing first. While the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, India and Pakistan refrained from signing the resolution, the Security Council must agree on a resolution in order to ban nuclear weapons completely and thus to urge all states that have either not signed or not ratified to the earlier treaty to do so.
