Under Secretary General: Emir Elhatip



The United National Legal Committee was established in 1947 and focuses on the development and codification of international law. The Sixth Committee of the General Assembly deals with a wide variety of legal matters such as established international law, human rights, terrorism, legal peacebuilding, law trade, space law, digital law and counterterrorism.



Human smuggling is a phenomenon that is understudied and it involves the provision of service to an individual who willingly seeks to enter a foreign region and it takes very different forms and may imply a large number of intermediaries. Smuggling is a crime against the borders of the nation and needs restrictions and precautions against it mainly because of its depreciation for governments, international organizations and societies at large.
