THIMUN committees at NISMUNC'22 are crafted to be beginner-friendly whilst offering stimulating debates. THIMUN-style Rules of Procedure (RoP) will be followed, steering debates towards resolutions to the global issues of today.
united nations human rights council
The United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) focuses on the very aspect of protecting and promoting human rights around the world and the ability to discuss all thematic human rights issues and situations that require its attention throughout the year. The council bears the responsibility of ensuring that the fundamental human rights are not infringed upon and addresses the ethical application of human rights onto every individual. The topics and agendas of the UNHRC at NISMUNC’22 are as follows:
“To deny people their human rights is to challenge their very humanity.” – Nelson Mandela
TOPIC 1: UIGHUR TREATMENT IN CHINA
TOPIC 2: INTERNET CENSORSHIP ON ACTIVISM
A HMUN committee’s pace is very much set by the delegates as their actions are reflected in in-council developments. HMUN councils have a tendency of fast-paced debates where delegates have to think on their feet and interpret their foreign policy within short time constraints; this leads to animated debate. NISMUNC’22 will adopt the Malaysian National Model United Nations’ HMUN procedure to cater for delegates with different levels of experience.
united nations security council
The Security Council is, arguably, the most integral organ of the UN with the primary responsibility for the maintenance of international peace and security. The only UN body with the authority to issue legally binding resolutions, the Security Council symbolises the ultimate responsibility of the United Nations. It can establish peacekeeping operations, international sanctions and military action to achieve this objective. The topics and agendas of the UNSC at NISMUNC’22 are as follows:
“No one wants the United Nations to suffer the fate of the League of Nations, which collapsed because it lacked real leverage. This is possible if influential countries bypass the United Nations and take military action without Security Council authorization.” – Vladimir Putin
Topic 1: Political and geographical tension between China and Taiwan and Hong Kong
Topic 2: Relocation and assimilation of Immigrants into Europe
The association of the Taliban with mass genocide and bombings has become an issue of global significance; most notable in relation to racism, stereotyping and islamophobia. With the recent development of the Taliban movement in Afghanistan, the world has become worried of the repetitions of past events in history. However, viewing through this lens only seems to support the idea of stereotypes.
“I say to the Taliban: surrender the terrorists; or surrender power. It’s your choice.” – Tony Blair
This crisis arc will deal with the new resurgence of Taliban activity; most notable in Afghanistan, as well as its direct and indirect impact on neighbouring countries.
“We need an opposition to remind us if we are making mistakes. When you are not opposed you think everything you do is right.” - Tun Dr. Mahathir bin Mohamad
The Dewan Rakyat is the lower chamber of the Parliament of Malaysia, consisting of members elected during the generals from federal constituencies drawn by the Election Commission. As one of the legislative bodies in Malaysia, its power could go up to amend the law and the constitution. With an ensemble of great minds, will delegates negotiate and enforce policies for the progression of Malaysian development? This controversial discourse may possibly strain conservative norms and shake the very foundations on previous dogma. The topics and agendas for the Dewan Rakyat in NISMUNC’22 are as follows:
Topic 1: Discussion of the legal age of marriage, Law Reform (Marriage and Divorce) Act 1976
