Security Council

The Security Council will, for the remainder of the MUN, concern itself with the following issues:

The situation in Myanmar:

Ever since the 1970s, the Muslim Rohingya population have faced discriminatory policies in their residing country, Myanmar. Many have compared the legal populations facing the Rohingya’s with apartheid. These policies have led to enormous refugee flows in neighboring countries. Since 2015, over 900,000 Rohingya have fled the country and over 100,000 are confined in camps in Myanmar. The UN has found evidence that hatred and religious intolerance by “ultra-nationalist Buddhists” has only increased towards the Rohingyas. At the same time, the Myanmar security forces have been conducting “summary executions, enforced disappearances, arbitrary arrests and detentions, troture and ill-treatment, and forced labor” against the community. The situation have been addressed in several international legal organizations, including the ICJ and ICC, to investigate crimes against humanity and genocide. The situation in Myanmar goes against any principles of democracy, human rights protection, the rule of law, freedom of speech and other fundamental rights, all of which the United Nations seek to protect.

The situation in Venezuela

The situation in Venezuela has taken on several forms: economic, political and social. Currently, there is a case of hyperinflation, escalating starvation, disease, huge crime and mortality rates and a presidential crisis, all of which have led to massive emigration from the country. Considering Venezuela’s dependency on oil and the involvement of many countries from the international community, the situation has become even more complicated. Suggesting that the lives of many people are in danger, either through acute famine, economic chaos political turmoil and more, the Security Council is requested to create resolutions to help these people in times of need.
