UNITED NATIONS SECURITY COUNCIL (UNSC)


The United Nations Security Council is one of the six principal organs of the United Nations, charged with ensuring international peace and security, recommending the admission of new UN members to the General Assembly, and approving any changes to the UN Charter. Its powers include establishing peacekeeping operations, enacting international sanctions, and authorizing military action. The UNSC is the only UN body with the authority to issue binding resolutions on member states.

Kurds or Kurdish people are an Iranic ethnic group native to a mountainous region of Western Asia known as Kurdistan, which spans south-eastern Turkey, north-western Iran, northern Iraq, and northern Syria. After World War I and the defeat of the Ottoman Empire, the victorious Western allies made provision for a Kurdish state in the 1920 Treaty of Sevres. However, that promise was broken three years later, when the Treaty of Lausanne set the boundaries of modern Turkey and made no such provision, leaving Kurds with minority status in all of the new countries. As of today, the Kurds are the world’s largest nation without a state. 

The Security Council has in the past addressed this issue on several occasions but it could not find a fruitful solution to this issue, it is therefore up to you delegates to find a solution favourable to all parties. Will the Kurds continue to live this way or will you make a change? 

Make sure you bring your best to this committee, for it requires a great amount of knowledge about the geopolitics of the Middle East and numerous applicable International law concepts and principles.

Agenda: Right to Self-Determination with reference to the Kurdish People.

Chairperson: Saad Naseem

Vice Chairperson: Mukesh Varma
