Common European Foreign and Defense Policy and the future of relations between the European Union and Turkey.

Despite not being in the framework of the United Nations, UABMUN dedicates one of its committees to simulate the decision-making dynamics within the European Council. Thereby, the participants will be able to debate as representatives in one of the international organisations closest to their reality, as well as a very unique body such as the European Council. The topics that will be dealt with have to do with European competences in external action; on the one hand, the scarce formal integration in this field -at the defence level-, which has been the subject of debate since the creation of the European Communities and, on the other hand, the position of the EU towards Turkey. After failed attempts to join the Union, the picture is very different today, especially due to the deterioration of democracy in this country.

The violation of human rights of the Uyghur community and guarantee the protection of civil rights of indigenous communities

The deterioration of human rights in China has long been a cause for concern, but the continuing accusations against the Chinese government of violating multiple human rights of the Uyghur community is a turning point and calls for strong international action. The second topic of debate concerns the civil rights of indigenous peoples, which have historically been ignored by multiple governments. Economic and territorial reasons such as land exploitation, and control over natural resources are at the centre of the debate.

The militarization of space and peace in the Sahel region.

Since the launch of Sputnik 1 in 1957 and the so-called "Star Wars" during the Cold War, the militarization of space has been a highly relevant issue for international security. The main weapons of concern when it comes to the militarization of space are anti-satellite weapons (ASAT) and ballistic missiles. Thus, weapons that are intended to intercept missiles along their average trajectory in space. While they do not execute actual combat operations themselves, they are used to guide ground forces or provide detailed intelligence on potential targets.

The African region of the Sahel -which includes the territories of Burkina Faso, Chad, Eritrea, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Nigeria, Senegal and Sudan- has been suffering for approximately 10 years a long crisis of a multidimensional nature. Concerns about territory, ethno-religious tensions, political instability, poverty and natural disasters are some of the most urgent problems. Given the gravity and complexity of the crisis, action by the most powerful executive body in the United Nations is necessary.
