  • Cultural rights of minorities in China

  • International crimes commited on social media

The Social, Humanitarian and Cultural Committee is the third General Assembly of the United Nations, tasked with a broad mandate surrounding social, humanitarian, and human rights issues from around the world. To delineate a general idea of the committee, some issues discussed within SOCHUM include, but are not limited to: human rights, global literacy, women’s rights, children’s rights, the treatment of refugees and displaced persons, international drug control, crime prevention, and the elimination of racism and discrimination. SOCHUM also works closely with other international bodies like the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in policy implementation. This year, at IELMUN 2019, delegates will be tasked with the cultural right of minorities in China. Considering more than 115 million Chinese citizens belong to China's different ethnic minority groups, SOCHUM does advise General Assembly, and in this session, should aim to resolve this issue. The delegates of the third committee will also have the opportunity to seek solutions to the issue of internet crimes on social media. Within years the issue has been brought to General Assembly and in this committee the delegates are expected to address the issue through previous attempts of solving the problem.
