Topic Descriptions

Topic A

This topic addresses the grave concern of covert deployment of Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMDs) in areas of territorial disputes. The hidden placement of biological, chemical, or nuclear weapons in such volatile regions not only exacerbates existing tensions but also poses a severe threat to international peace. The potential for these weapons to be used, either intentionally or accidentally, during conflicts in disputed territories is alarmingly high. Delegates are tasked with developing strategies to prevent the clandestine stationing of WMDs, ensuring the detection and dismantling of such deployments, and establishing international norms and legal frameworks to deter such actions. This topic underscores the need for heightened vigilance and cooperation among nations to safeguard against the risks associated with WMDs in disputed areas.

Topic B

The proprietary control of the Suez and Panama Canals has significant implications for global disarmament efforts and the broader development agenda. These strategic waterways are not only crucial for international trade but also play a pivotal role in the movement of military assets, including those related to WMDs. The topic invites an examination of how the dominion over these canals influences disarmament policies and the sustainable development of nations dependent on these maritime routes. Delegates will explore the complexities surrounding the control and management of these canals, considering the balance between national interests, regional stability, and global security. The discussion aims to foster a more equitable and secure approach to the governance of these critical international waterways, aligning them with the broader goals of disarmament and sustainable development.
