Committees & Topics

All committees and topics are final.

Position Papers are due on November 11, 2012.

General Assembly Plenary (GA) - Position Papers Should Address Topics 1 and 2 ONLY.

   1. Agriculture Development and Food Security

   2. The Question of Palestine

Note: Additionally, the General Assembly will simulate Security Council Elections. The elections of the Security Council non-permanent members are not a topic, but rather a process that will be simulated in the General Assembly. Therefore, it should not be addressed within GA position papers. This process will take place during the committee sessions on Sunday, November 18th.
