We are preparing a full dossier with complete information for each comittee. We'll post them here as soon as we get them

SECURITY COUNCIL 

1. Status of subjects suspected of joining or returning from the Islamic State
One of the many issues arising with the global threat of terrorism is defection. There are a lot of international policies and conventions which have attempted to treat the issue of terrorism, both in deterring it and dealing with those involved. An issue which the international community has failed to act on is on those who attempt to return from being terrorists, this is your task. 
2. Nagorno-Karabach 
Nagorno-Karabach is a land situated in Armenian territory and surrounded by Azerbaijan which actually works as a de facto independent state. But to arrive at this situation there has been a large conflict which is not really finished, with ubiquity preventing previous Security council efficacy. The Security Council will need to discuss the current situation and the steps it has to take in order to achieve a peaceful end for this dispute. 


HUMAN RIGHTS COUNCIL

1.Women’s rights in Uzbekistan and the neighboring countries
There are a number of major issues with the situation for women in Uzbekistan. The UN previously pointed out that a large proportion of women are becoming pregnant despite their wish to access contraceptive materials but these are not available. Other major threats include the large trafficking activity and speculation by some that the government is imposing a policy of forced sterilisation. The UNHRC must act on these supposed gro

2. Free speech, hate speech and possible limitations in 2015
The line between an acceptable or non acceptable speech in terms of ethics is very thin as well as the decision of limiting the freedom of speech is full of pros and cons. The Human Rights Councils will have to expose where is the limit of the freedom of speech and which should be the position of states among this issue. Does freedom of speech supersede the possibility of offence? More importantly, what can be done to deal with the consequences
 

GENERAL ASSEMBLY - ECONOMIC AND FINANCIAL COMMITTEE - ECOFIN 

1. Energy poverty- how to end energy poverty/guarantee access to energy
The access to energy is not guaranteed nowadays neither in all the countries nor for all the people of the developed states. That’s why the General Assembly should discuss whether there is a need to legislate in order to oblige all the state members to guarantee these rights. Some countries have already published some rules regarding the responsibility of the state of providing energy to those who cannot afford it.  Which should be the role of states in energy poverty?

2. Nuclear energy-proliferation of thorium
Thorium is a radioactive element that is far more abundant than other elements such as uranium. It is also said that working with thorium is more safe and clean than with uranium because it is less radioactive, and of course, it is cheaper as far as it is more abundant. One of the major advantages is that thorium can’t be weaponised - do these advantages justify an extension of nuclear powered states.
Should we bet for this energy as the solution to our environmental problems and contamination?


GA DISARMAMENT & INTERNATIONAL SECURITY COMMITTEE  - DISEC

1. Loss of Human Control and increase of Automation in Warfare
The advance of  technology has arrived in Warfare lately with the form of drones. This items can shot with just one click miles away and that has created a great controversy for those militaries who defend that the vision from a drone camera is far worse than the human eye and that this can contribute to make wrong decisions regarding human lives. Advances from companies such as the Israeli Aerospace Industries have made the use of drone technology not only viable but extremely militarily advantageous. The question is: how do we control this?
2. Role of Private Military Companies and Modern Warfare
Meanwhile the UN is focused in preventing the arms market as much as possible, actually Private Military Companies are one of the most successful markets of all time. Having come a long way from 17th century Swiss Mercenaries. The private military companies of today are comprised largely of ex nationally trained soldiers; these PMCs being for hire does, however, threaten national security when military forces are on offer to the highest bidder…


EUROPEAN COUNCIL 

1. Reevaluating Schengen zone do to terror threats
Europe has always evolved to a non frontier politics neither with goods nor with people, but the last succeeds in Paris and the following escape of one of the terrorists through Spain has reopened the debate of the benefits of the Schengen zone. A number of nations are attempting to join the Schengen zone and from an economic perspective this is justifiable, but do these economic advantages outweigh the possible security threat?
2. Evaluating the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). The pros and cons of opening the EU markets to a free trade agreement with the United States (and EU can consider other countries)
TTIP has divided european legislators between the realists and the economists. Beyond that it has divided the economists from other economists. This debate on the expansion of free trade throws into question the economic relevance of barriers and if an open market would be in aggregate preferable to a protected one.
