The UN Third General Assembly Social, Humanitarian, and Cultural Committee (SOCHUM) is focused on addressing the main social issues plaguing the world today. The committee will debate and form solutions to protect and preserve culture for future generations while catering to the human rights of individuals. Third SOCHUM will uphold the values set forth by the UN Declaration of Human Rights through contributions to the health, humanitarian needs, and social development of member nations. At LAMUN this year, SOCHUM will focus on the protection of minority groups in Myanmar by looking at the international community's potential for collective action and by examining the ways to deal with the intense social and institutional discrimination taking place. Furthermore, this committee will delve into the gender politics of terrorism and delegates will work to explore the implications of terrorism and terrorist activity on the lives of women.
