Topic 

 The role of the state's behavior on social media in modern politics and international security.

Topic Abstract

It is an inevitable truth that social media has a powerful influence over global society. It can be useful to bring the masses together and achieve goals, but  as we’ve seen in recent events it can also be a double edged sword.  

According to article 10 of the Declaration of Human Rights, everyone has the right to exercise free speech, but it becomes controversial when political parties and/or leaders use these platforms to instigate violent and hateful acts. The spread of fake news goes hand in hand with the previous issue, making social media a confusing and unreliable source of information, and causing people to take postures based on tempered information. 

The debate of this committee will be focused on developing strategies to encourage the right use of social networks and have a proper procedure in case they are used inappropriately by influential figures. Bear in mind that all members of the Security Council must comply with the resolutions that the committee reaches.
