The First Committee deals with disarmament, global challenges and threats to peace that affect the international community and seeks out solutions to the challenges in the international security regime.
The agenda of our committee is «Protocol to halt illegal arms flow through Libya». The atmosphere of lawlessness and degradation of the state that developed in Libya after the NATO intervention in 2011 provided unhindered access to vast stockpiles of weapons, including heavy ones belonging to Gaddafi's troops. The instability in such an important, from the political and economic points of view, country as Libya has attracted a lot of attention from the international community. Libya's territory now is used as a channel trough which every day flow thousands of illegal immigrants from nearby territories. In addition to the criminalization of the Libyan population in the context of the proliferation of weapons, the illegal sale of arms has flourished in the country, often going beyond its borders, which eventually led to irreversible consequences, including the supply of terrorist organizations and criminal groups with means of combat. Moreover, there are deliveries of heavy weapons bypassing the international embargo to the warring parties in the civil war. Accordingly, our goal is to develop and propose mechanisms to ensure compliance with the embargo obligations and to prevent the transit of arms from the combat zone. In terms of this year Model, we hope that Diplomats will find out the way of fighting with this problem and propose the ideas for restoring peace in Libya.
