The Security Council issues for AISMUN 2018 are:
Issue #1: The question of the military occupation in Haiti.

Issue #2: The Reformation of the Security Council.
The Security Council was created post World War II, the victors assigned veto powers to ensure that Germany did not gain power. Since then, our modern world has progressed, the current veto powers are no longer said to represent the most powerful countries, as well as a lack in regional representation. Moreover, the issue of transparency within the Security Council as well as the rules of procedure are up to question.
Issue #3: Combatting terrorism and extremism in the Horn of Africa.
For over a decade, the Horn of Africa —Kenya, Ethiopia, Djibouti, Somalia, Eritrea, and Sudan— has been considered a major source of terrorism following an increase in terrorism activity worldwide, the horn has come under increased scrutiny as a strategic focal point in the war against terrorism.
