General Assembly Sixth Committee
Ruthless; that’s what our world has become. Ruthless is a word that could describe each and every contributor to the ruthless world we’re situated in today. It could describe the political institutions, who callously and selfishly take every opportunity to suppress the weak for their own personal aspirations and gains. But more regretfully, It could also describe us, the common citizens of such world, who remain passersby and to an extent, acceptors of our ruthless fate. However, one cannot make such generalisation, as to every postulation, there’s an exception; and we are counted as one. The fact that we get to participate in MUN conferences negate the notion of us being passersby and compliers, as we gain more knowledge about the ruthlessness we’re facing today with high hopes in tomorrow, that we be the forces and the advocates of change.
It is highly agreed that ruthlessness in our world originate from legal related issues, in which the General Assembly Sixth Committee, the legal committee, commit on tackling. In this year’s GA 6, we’ll be tackling the following issues: establishing a legal framework for diplomatic asylum for dissidents, the issue of preventing government surveillance on personal information on public networks, and setting a legal framework preventing discrimination and abusive violence based on sexual orientation. I, Zeina Abdeldayem President of GA 6, along with my exceptional chair, Amina Marwan believe that bringing such contemporary topics to the table, will act as a step, even if it is a minor one, in eradicating our ruthless reality. Moreover, Amina and I are excited to meet you all, as we are positive that all delegates participating in our forum will eagerly stimulate a heated debate, construct and compile well written resolutions and be as knowledgeable and prepared as possible on all three topics; as we expect nothing less.
