Issue #1: The Threat of Transnational Organized Crime to International Security
Organized Crime poses as a significant threat to international safety and security, imposing implications on public health, safety, and economic stability. This problem began domestically in the United States and some areas in South America but is rapidly spreading and should be dealt with by the entire international community. Organized crime rings can’t be dealt with as regular terrorists because instead of using weapons to spread fear, the use their knowledge and twist judicial and economic policies to their favor.
Issue #2: Protection of and Assistance to Internally Displaced Persons
The typical response by countries to violence in the past two decades has been to respond with more violence. When plotting these forms of violence, countries take into consideration the potential number of lives lost. However, they fail to recognize the amount of lives that will be displaced. In recognition of this issue, the General Assembly will look into resolutions that will find appropriate solutions and settlements for ordinary people whose lives were turned around due to conflicts in places of turmoil such as Syria, Palestine, Afghanistan, and Ukraine.
Issue #3: Cyber Security and Protecting Against Cyber Warfare
In our modern day digital age, technology grows stronger everyday with more capacity for progress and expansion. However, coupled with this exponential growth comes the threat for exponential destruction as hackers and cyber attackers gain more power each day. In response to this, the General Assembly must reach a response to deal with these attackers firmly as they could potentially cause more harm than our previous understanding of terrorist groups.
