Territorial Disputes Between Iraq and Syria Rooted in ISIS Involvement

In a time when warfare runs rampant, it is crucial to address and discuss territorial disputes that occur in nations across the world. Throughout history, the involvement of ISIS has affected and strained the relationship between the nation-states of Iraq and Syria. Delegates in this committee will not only be responsible for finding feasible solutions for the issues but also for finding means of peace. It is critical that delegates take into account the health and well-being of citizens, geopolitical challenges, historical context, and the impact of the extremist group on the region in their solutions and ideas. The Special Political and Decolonization Committee will delve into the complex issues, and delegates will need to analyze and address current political dynamics as well as cultural background.
