Social, Cultural, and Humanitarian Committee
The Third Committee of the United Nations General Assembly (SOCHUM) focuses on issues relating to culture, societal development, and human rights. As one of the most pivotal committees of the UNGA, SOCHUM will offer delegates the opportunity to debate some of our planet's most pressing humanitarian concerns. Each topic will encompass multiple dimensions that will not only encourage discourse but drive change.
