SOCIAL, HUMANITARIAN AND CULTURAL COMMITTEE
The Social, Humanitarian and Cultural Committee is the third committee of the General Assembly in the United Nations, having held its first session in 1945 as a response to the establishment of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The committee’s mission is to tackle various issues related to a broad spectrum of subjects from basic human rights and humanitarian affairs to social matters on a global scale. The committee, apart from ensuring that social justice, solidarity, equality and respect of the rights of all peoples and all human beings prevail, empowers and promotes social, economic and political inclusiveness of all sections of the society, including women, persons with disabilities, indigenous communities and other disadvantaged groups. Other subjects the committee focuses on are refugees, indigenous people, women, children and families, ageing and disabled persons, the youth, literacy, racism, intolerance, self-determination, drug control, crime prevention and overall social development.
We recommend you partake in this committee if you consider yourself to be able to grasp issues better from a humanitarian point of view in addition to favouring to debate on issues that affect a large chunk of society if not the whole wide world itself.
