BDMUN 2022 The United Nations Security Council (UNSC)
It is our distinct pleasure to welcome you to the United Nations Security Council Committee at BDMUN 2022. Prepare yourselves for two days of heated yet fruitful debate, brain-numbing crises and a dynamic committee experience. You will have the opportunity to interact with students of diverse backgrounds and grow as a delegate through this challenging journey inside and outside the committee.
The United Nations Security Council is responsible for maintaining global peace and security. The presence of a global threat or aggressor causes the Security Council to pass legislations and vote on resolutions. The Security Council has the power to take military action and create peacekeeping organizations as well. The committee is made up of five permanent members which are the United States of America, the United Kingdom, China, Russia and France. These members are the only states with the power to veto any resolutions that are passed by the committee.
Space warfare refers to a situation in which two or more nations make use of AI based space weapon systems to sabotage or attack satellites of other nations. There are various forms of this warfare – space to space warfare refers to the use of satellites and other devices situated above the Earth’s atmosphere in war and ground to space warfare refers to the use of technological advancements that are used to compromise devices that are above ground. As the human race is becoming increasingly reliant on the use of satellite based communications systems, space organizations from around the world are constantly innovating newer technologies to exploit these benefits that they can gain. During our committee session, the United Nations Security Council will work to pass a resolution that will help limit the use of such technologies while delegates will come face-to-face with crises that they must resolve.
BDMUN strives to provide the most well-rounded educational and enjoyable experience to delegates. These two days will be packed with challenges such as innovative crises, and resounding moral implications on the delegates. In this committee, we look forward to discussing the control of AI and technology in space warfare. We will do our best to help you understand parliamentary procedures and to ensure that the views of all delegates are respected and heard. Nevertheless, we expect each delegate to come to the conference with an understanding of their country’s interests. Never hesitate to ask us any doubts you may have in the course of the conference. To sum it up, in the words of Stalin, “A sincere diplomat is like dry water or wooden iron.” Thus, in a world where the honest man doesn’t exist, it is up to you crafty delegates to change the course of global politics in the context of biowarfare, in accordance with the vested interests of your allotted countries.
