The Special Political Decolonization Committee

Decolonization of Southeast and East Asia

The United Nations General Assembly Fourth Committee, or most commonly known as the Special Political Decolonization Committee, deals with a variety of political issues ranging from peacekeeping operations to purposing nations towards economic growth. Decolonization has been a recent topic of discussion throughout UN bodies, as everyday millions of people struggle from the effects of colonial empires on their cultural and political sovereignty. The Southeast and East Asian regions have faced several post-colonial problems, from a rise in violence, to a deterioration of identity. In this committee, we will be discussing the case of postcolonial re-integration in nations affected by imperial pasts, thus making it our goal to create a framework that will prioritize independence, culture, and economic growth within an independent nation.
