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. 


Public transportation has much more significance in society than some would ever imagine. Not only is it simply a way to get around, but it is also a system that can either limit or expand the opportunities available to people based on their location. Inadequate public transportation can limit access to education, jobs, goods, health care and other services for individuals, which may lead to a deteriorating economy and social cohesion of entire communities. To support social development and to widen opportunities for all, access to sufficient public transportation is indispensable and therefore should be treated as a right.

One of the most common reasons for war is religious conflict. In order to prevent such severe differences, the World’s Parliament of Religions was held in 1893, with the aim of promoting better understanding between different religious groups and communities. Several initiatives to start dialogue were carried out ever since, targeting to maintain peace in religiously diverse areas and to prevent faith-motivated violence. The term “interreligious” or “interfaith dialogue” usually refers to groups of different faiths interacting cooperatively, with each party remaining true to their own beliefs and traditions, while understanding and accepting the others. The main aim of the dialogue is to tackle tensions and promote acceptance.
