The Fourth Committee of the United Nations, henceforth known as the Special Political and De/Colonization Committee (SPECPOL), is tasked with dealing with a wide range of issues ranging from land rights, to nuclear material to outer space. At MUNUC 31, SPECPOL will choose between debating two important but often underrepresented topics in our world today. The first is Cyber Security. The possibilities here are endless - while typically a committee might address one issue of Cyber Security (like Cyber Terrorism or Cyber Warfare), SPECPOL's unique purview allows it to tackle the entire problem, allowing it to take strong steps toward solving the problem like defining the various cyber terms, translating the typical act of aggression policy on war into the cyber realm, or even laying out a declaration of cyber security and privacy rights any individual should have. While this is by nature a technical committee, emphasis will be placed on bridging the gap between technology and policy - delegates must have a strong understanding of the basic Cyber Security principles, as well as have the creativity and background knowledge of existing relevant policies to update the way we interact and combat threats to the 21st Century. Our second topic, Organized Crime, deals with an age old problem that never seems to be fully addressed by the United Nations - how can we not only work together to prevent the crime that Organized groups are doing across the world, but additionally disrupt those very groups themselves. Delegates here will need to have creative and technologically driven solutions that incentive countries to work together for the good of everyone.
