Special Political and Decolonization, 1963

The UN Committee for Special Political and Decolonization (SPECPOL) is proud to operate in the historical universe of 1963. Committed to resolving the political tensions that divide conflicted areas in addition to its primary mission of preparing colonies for statehood, this body of the UN General Assembly will challenge delegates to look beyond the current to better appreciate decisions of the past. 

This session, the Office of the Secretary-General is excited to task SPECPOL with two primary objectives set in 1963:

1. African Decolonization

2. The Space Race

As a historical General-Assembly, SPECPOL is accessible for delegates of all levels with an interest in remaking history. We invite every participant ready to take the plunge into a world of political intrigue to the SPECPOL chambers at EmpireMUNC III.

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 November 24th, 2016. The delegate with the best research will also receive the Position Paper Award. For a sample paper, please click here
