Agenda: Strengthening & Protection of Human Rights in Conflict Zones Globally
Human rights violations are at the root causes of conflict and insecurity which, in turn, invariably result in further violations of human rights. As such, action to protect and promote human rights has inherent preventive power while rights-based approaches to peace and security bring this power to efforts for sustainable peace. The human rights normative framework also provides a sound basis for addressing issues of serious concern within or between countries that, if left unaddressed, may lead to conflict.

Access to food, energy, fuel and safe drinking water has become increasingly hard, culminating in a healthcare disaster. This committee will look into how it happened and how the Sri Lankan government lost all of its money.
