United Nation's General Assembly for Social, Humanitarian, and Cultural affairs (SOCHUM) is dedicated to the ongoing growth of society and its overall welfare. Built upon ideals of equal representation and cooperation, SOCHUM is an opportunity for all UN member states, large and small, to actively participate in the mission to move mankind forward.

The Office of the Secretary-General has tasked SOCHUM with two distinct problem-spaces to address this session. 

As a consensus-driven assembly, SOCHUM is proud to be accessible to states of all size, and delegates of all experience levels, from beginners to veterans. We look forward to stepping forward together as one with you. 

To be eligible for individual awards, delegates in GA committees are required to submit a position paper. Each delegate should submit a one-page paper, single spaced, to their chair via email by 11:59 pm on December 1st, 2017. The delegate with the best research will also receive the Position Paper Award. For a sample paper, please click here
