COMMITTEE DESCRIPTION

Political and Security, or 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 currently global climate concerning military actions abroad are extremely relevant in this committee, because the committee as a whole is an interesting 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. The topics this year, counter-terrorism, post-conflict peacebuilding, and cyber surveillance will deal heavily with the private interests of countries versus the sovereignty of those abroad.
