Welcome to the Human Rights Committee!
The Human Rights Committee was formed with the intent to promote and uphold the ideals of equality and human rights. It is arguably one of the most important committees in the United Nations, after all, it concerns the rights and welfare of all 7.6 billion of us. This year the theme of our MUNHigh conference is humanity, making human rights the committee to be in!
We will be debating issues that are very relevant and important in our current climate. The issue of modern slavery is one which is often overlooked and thought to not occur in developed economies. Yet, forced labour in developing countries contributes to supply chains which lead to developed economies in the West, in industries all around us. So the question is how can we move to a world free of ‘modern’ slavery, when it is ingrained in our society?
The issue of the right to privacy is also becoming more critical, especially during this pandemic when our reliance on technology has been heightened more than ever before. In this modern technological age, increasing information is being monitored and sold without consent under the guise of protection. But this issue begs the question of where we draw the lines between protection and invasion.
These topics aren’t necessarily ones that can simply be solved, but hopefully, as a committee we can come up with some thoughtful resolutions of how to mitigate the issues at hand and enjoy the fruitful, and fun debate! I look forward to (virtually) seeing you all and your cool backgrounds soon!
- Iman!! :)
