The Legal Committee of the United Nations General Assembly, also known as the Sixth Committee, is concerned with the creation and use of international law. The Legal Committee of the United Nations General Assembly commenced in 1948, where it has since been the central body for debate on the world’s most pressing legal issues. The Sixth Committee provides solutions through recommendations, and although these are non-binding resolutions, they significantly influence states in their legal actions to align with the United Nations’ legal code. The Committee has formed a global framework of international law and places an emphasis on the protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms.
This committee will feature 57 delegates discussing:
1. Mass Surveillance
2. Potential War Crimes in Yemen
