UN Office on Counter-Terrorism

Hi everyone! Hope you’re having a great summer. Henry and I are interested in running the UN Office on Counter-Terrorism (OCT) at next year’s OSUMUN. Established in 2017, the OCT carries out the mission of the 2006 UN Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy and aims to work with the Security Council to deliberate on and strengthen existing partnerships within the United Nations in addition to promoting debate on new issues member states are facing in regards to terrorist acts both within their borders and more broadly across regions. We believe this would be an incredibly interesting General Assembly as the ideas discussed would be incredibly topical and we could potentially introduce some crisis elements (a desire we heard in committee feedback this year). Additionally, the scope of the committee would be very broad which would allow for very distinct and different topics to be simulated within the committee.
