Topic A: Revitalizing the General Assembly
The General Assembly of the United Nations is an important forum of the United Nations in which resolutions are passed and issues of peace are addressed. However, much needs to be done about the organization and structure of the General Assembly. Ways to enhance the authority, effectiveness and efficiency need of the General Assembly need to be identified to create a more effective United Nations body.
Topic B: Environmental Justice for the Poor and Marginalized
With the world in a scramble for natural resources that are becoming increasingly limited, poor countries with untapped natural resources often find themselves being exploited by outside sources for access to these resources. The legal rights of these countries and societies need to be examined in regard to retaining control over their own natural resources.
