Topic A: Peacekeeping Operations in South Sudan
South Sudan became the world's newest sovereign state and UN member in July 2011. However, in the country's 11 year history, it has been griped with nothing but challenges. The country has already witnessed a civil war fought within its borders, causing the displacement of hundreds of thousands of citizens. Although South Sudan has officially been at peace since February 2020, there have been growing worries about said peace being short-lived. What can SPECPOL do to keep the peace in South Sudan?
Topic B: Deterring the Militarization of Modern Colonialism
One of the world's most prominent issues today is that of modern colonialism, or neocolonialism. While this is not outright and blatant like the colonialism of old, many of the world's most powerful countries still exercise indirect political control over developing states through imperialist agendas, including militarization. These developing countries are unable to develop on their own, which has disproportionately affected their global status. How can SPECPOL help developing countries secure their own, independent status in the world?
