GA Plen

The General Assembly is the main deliberative, policymaking, and representative organ of the United Nations (UN) and is the only UN organ in which all 193 Member States are represented. The committee discusses the full spectrum of international issues covered by the UN Charter, such as development, international law, and peace and security.



The International Organization for Migration (IOM) is a leading intergovernmental organization on migration issues, providing both long-term and short-term relief and policy recommendations to the international community. While the IOM was established outside the auspices of the UN in 1951, it officially joined the UN system as a related organization in 2016. The IOM serves as the leading advisor on international migration law, policy debate, and guidance, and its program of work addresses a variety of topics that intersect with migration including but not limited to: gender inequality, climate change, xenophobia, health and safety, and internal displacement.



The mission of the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) is largely defined by the need to cultivate, innovate, and progress, whilst focusing on sustainable development in three dimensions: economic, social, and environmental. ECOSOC aims to guide its Member States down the path of sustainable development via policy formulation and implementation, financial assistance with development-based projects, managing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), as well as coordinating humanitarian aid globally.



The mission of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine and the Near East (UNRWA) is to ensure Palestinian refugees have access to education, health care, and relief and social services. The UNRWA also works to ensure efficiency and respect to human rights during situations of peace and armed conflict that affect Palestinian refugees, including infrastructure and camp safety and improvement, and emergency response measures.



The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) is responsible for maintaining international peace and security. The UNSC works to determine the existence of threats to the peace or acts of aggression. It may call upon disputing parties to settle by peaceful means and recommend terms of settlement and can resort to imposing sanctions or authorize the use of force to maintain or restore international peace and security. The UNSC is an open-agenda committee and will simulate a crisis.
