United Nations Security Council
The United Nations Security Council will focus on the following two topics:
1. Rwandan Genocide:
The conflicts that led up to the 1990s Rwandan Genocide were a direct result of western colonization and influence. The new ideology of social class distinction cause major tension amongst the two largest religious groups in Rwanda, the Hutus and the Tutsis. In a matter of 100 days, over 800,000 Tutsis were killed.
2. War on Drugs:
The War on Drugs is a popular term within the United States, which is used to define the prohibition of drugs and military intervention in order to reduce the illegal drug trade. However, this is very much an international issue. The illicit creation, transport, and distribution of narcotics is a $435 Billion annual business, and approaching it requires both breadth and depth of policy action.
