Historical General Assembly:
United Nations Special Political Committee (SPC)
The United Nations Special Political Committee was originally created as an additional General Assembly committee to handle matters that had not yet drawn the attention of the First Committee. The body continued to exist until the late 1970s, when it was merged with the Fourth Committee to form the modern-day Special Political and Decolonization Committee (SPECPOL). Despite its status, the SPC has tackled numerous important issues over its brief tenure. This Historical General Assembly committee will tackle issues related to international security and politics with the intent of producing a resolution that may lead to an outcome better than what history actually saw.
