GENERAL ASSEMBLY

Review of the Non-Proliferation Treaty

Chair: Harishankar Padmanabhan

Vice Chair:Tanmmay Rout

The United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) is one of the six principal organs of the United Nations. As the most representative organ of the United Nations, the committee provides a unique platform for all 193 member nations to have equal representation and follows the policy of one nation, one vote. The large size and diversity of the General Assembly allows it to exercise deliberative, supervisory, financial, and elective control over any matter within the scope of the UN Charter, such as development, peace and security, and international law. It also has to oversee the budget of the UN, appoint the non-permanent members to the Security Council, appoint the Secretary-General of the UN, receive reports from other parts of the UN, and make recommendations in the form of General Assembly Resolutions. Most importantly, it is the main global forum for discussing international political cooperation, threats to peace and economic development, as well as the huge range of social, humanitarian and cultural issues that come under the United Nations.
