The Social, Humanitarian, and Cultural Committee (SOCHUM) is the Third Committee of the General Assembly of the United Nations and focuses broadly on the welfare and human rights of protected groups such as refugees, children, victims of discrimination, and many others. This year, delegates will have the ability to focus on two of those very groups. The first topic covers indigenous groups and addresses issues related to their continued culture and existence.

Indigenous peoples face multitudes of challenges, from resource extraction to climate change, and are often left defenseless with limited resources and capabilities to maintain their way of life. These issues and more will be discussed under topic A. The second topic of this committee focuses on journalists and freedom of expression. Under this topic, delegates will have the chance to discuss issues of censorship, the media’s responsibility in misinformation, and international standards for journalists abroad from their home country. Both topics should inspire pertinent conversations and hopefully give delegates a more global mindset on these relevant issues.
