The General Assembly issues of AISMUN 2018 are:
Issue #1: The question of reforming the veto policy.
In the past 20 years alone, approximately 1,100 resolutions mainly sponsored by 68 countries and backed by 123 countries have been vetoed. These include the Middle East situation, including the Palestinian question (concerning the United States recognition of Jerusalem as Israeli capital), Middle East (Use of chemical weapons in the Syrian Civil War), Myanmar (concerning Military junta rule preluding the Saffron Revolution), and even the partial punishment of Israel by the UN for numerous killings in Palestine by the army. All extremely controversial resolutions that would have changed the course of today's. As a result of such a massive number of vetoes by the Republic of China, Russian Federation, France, the United Kingdom and the United States, the United nations General Assembly has decided to take into consideration reformation and/or even the dissolving of the policy.
Issue #2: Measures to eliminate international terrorism.
In 1994, the General Assembly had its first Distr. General session to discuss international terrorism. At forty-ninth session, the General Assembly approved the Declaration on Measures to Eliminate International Terrorism. At its fifty-first session, the General Assembly established an Ad Hoc Committee to elaborate an international convention for the suppression of terrorist bombings and, subsequently, an international convention for the suppression of acts of nuclear terrorism, to supplement related existing international instruments, and thereafter to address means of further developing a comprehensive legal framework of conventions dealing with international terrorism. Through the work of the Committee, the Assembly has so far adopted three counter-terrorism instruments. Yet, not a single one has included a full retaliation of military force. They have all included minor attacks on known bases, secluded headquarters, as well as intervention to an extent. As a result at the the entire world is working to stop the group's war-crashed actions and in turn, in the UN's Seventy-first annual session, the question was raised again. Although, numerous cases have called for a direct retaliation, many of today's leaders are trying to find more peaceful and strategic ways to counter terrorism. This includes the world's hand-in-hand fight against it as well as increased security and safety measures.
Issue #3: Strengthening capability of UN system to ISIS member states by implementing the global counter terrorism strategy.
Adopted 8 September 2006, the strategy is a unique global instrument to enhance national, regional and international efforts to counter terrorism and has five main functions:
- Provide leadership on the General Assembly counter-terrorism mandates entrusted to the Secretary-General from across the United Nations system;
- Enhance coordination and coherence across the 38 Counter-Terrorism Implementation Task Force entities to ensure the balanced implementation of the four pillars of the UN Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy;
- Strengthen the delivery of United Nations counter-terrorism capacity-building assistance to Member States;
- Improve visibility, advocacy and resource mobilization for United Nations counter-terrorism efforts; and
- Ensure that due priority is given to counterterrorism across the United Nations system and that the important work on preventing violent extremism is firmly rooted in the Strategy.
The Office aims to have a close relationship with Security Council bodies and Member States, strengthening existing and developing new partnerships through regular travel and attendance at counter-terrorism-related meetings. Now through the last 4 sessions, ISIS member states, have become much stronger and more dangerous. As a result of non-discretionary measures, the UN is attempting to implement these strategies ISIS member states.
Issue #4: The question of permanent ban of any and all mean of nuclear weapon as well as enforcing sanctions on countries that have nuclear weapons.
Since the start of Disarmament Commission, it has been concerned with the use of Nuclear Explosives specifically under the United Nations Office for Disarmament affairs. Yet at the sixty-eighth annuals Disarmament session, they passed a resolution to formally include the General assembly in the use and disarmament in terms of power over the member states. Since then, the General assembly has been attempting disband any weapons and matters regarding such. As a result, A number of multilateral treaties have since been established with the aim of preventing nuclear proliferation and testing, while promoting progress in nuclear disarmament. These include the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT), the Treaty Banning Nuclear Weapon Tests In The Atmosphere, In Outer Space And Underwater, also known as the Partial Test Ban Treaty (PTBT), and the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT), which was signed in 1996 but has yet to enter into force.
