COMMITTEES

General Assembly: 

The General Assembly (GA) is the main deliberative, policy-making and representative organ of the UN. Decisions on important questions, such as those on peace and security, admission of new members and budgetary matters, require a two-thirds majority.

The Security Council: 

 

Under the Charter, the Security Council has primary responsibility for the maintenance of international peace and security. It has 15 Members, and each Member has one vote. Under the Charter, all Member States are obligated to comply with Council decisions.

The Security Council takes the lead in determining the existence of a threat to the peace or act of aggression. It calls upon the parties to a dispute to settle it by peaceful means and recommends methods of adjustment or terms of settlement. In some cases, the Security Council can resort to imposing sanctions or even authorize the use of force to maintain or restore international peace and security.

The Security Council also recommends to the General Assembly the appointment of the Secretary-General and the admission of new Members to the United Nations. And, together with the General Assembly, it elects the judges of the International Court of Justice.

International Press Corps:

The IPC is one of the most unique committees at MUN, as delegates act as members of the media instead of country representatives. They are tasked with interviewing delegates, reporting on the happenings of committees, and analyzing developments during the conference. Click here to visit the IPC blog.
