COMMITTEE DESCRIPTION

Political and Security (Pol-Sec) is a committee in which several major areas of foreign affairs interlock. Security, sovereignty, and military all play a role in how diplomacy and politics unfold: especially in the twenty-first century. The global climate concerning military actions abroad is extremely relevant in this committee; Pol-Sec as a whole is an engaging look into how politics and militaries interact with one another when making policy decisions. These intricacies between security for the sake of sovereignty and sovereignty for the sake of security make the committee debate diverse and intense.
