The Special Political and Decolonization Committee (SPECPOL) is the Fourth Committee of the United Nations, and often deals with issues including decolonization, peacekeeping, and outer space. It is important in the modern age, especially considering current political moves towards the militarization of space, to pursue peaceful international uses of outer space. But other issues are closer to home: it is estimated that 78 countries across the globe are contaminated by mines, explosives, and other “UXOs” or “Unexploded Ordnance”. These shells and mines are leftovers from wars and civil unrest, and frequently injure and kill civilians and non-combatants, and international cooperation is required to address the issue. Finally, it is important for the United Nations to consider the question of United Nations Peacekeeping in all of its aspects. Accounts of rape and other criminal activities frequently plague UN Peacekeeping missions, and the recent attribution of a cholera outbreak in Haiti to UN Peacekeepers throws further doubt onto the aid these missions provide.
