Committee:Human Rights Council
Topic Area A: The rights of refugees, returnees and displaced persons.
The Human Rights Council,
A) Alarmed by huge waves of migration of refugees this recent decade in the developed countries. It
is noted that this happens because of some developing countries such as Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria
as well as some countries of Northern Africa not providing all the necessary essentials to a share of
their citizens. Consequently, they emigrate to deal with their problems. These people face more
problems in the countries they end up in.
B) Affirming that it is required for refugees and citizens of our country to co-exist peacefully in the
world. It is considered imperative though, citizens of a country are not burdened because of this
change. This is why control of the influx of refugees in a country is so important to maintain the safety
of the citizens.
C) Bearing in mind the fact that our previous governments have admittedly made mistakes exercising
racial behaviour towards refugees. Despite this, in recent years important steps of improvement have
been made in the tackling of this problem as a group of French specialists having been sent to Syria
for the provision of medical care to the victims of conflict.

Committee: Social Humanitarian & Cultural
Topic Area: The protection of human rights in peaceful protests and the fight against extremist
Sponsored by: France
A. Bearing in mind Jean Racine’s quote “Extreme justice is often injustice”, we realize that the same extremist act
is depending on the observer’s values, politics, moral scope, and the nature of their relationship with the actor.
B. Considering that political extremism involves an excessively simple diagnosis of the world's ills, and a conviction
that there are identifiable villains, we have to keep in mind that extreme to the right and to the left of any political
dispute are always wrong.
C. Realizing that while it is impossible to ignore the fact that extremist individuals and groups are often viewed as
cohesive and consistently evil, it is also very significant to bear in mind that they may be conflicted or ambivalent
psychologically as individuals and contain a great deal of difference and conflict within their groups.
D. "The question is not whether we will be extremists, but what kind of extremists we will be. ...The nation and the
world are in dire need of creative extremists." .Quote of
Martin Luther King, Jr.
E. Undoubtedly, one of the main causes of extremism is a lack of knowledge and insight into the
purposes, spirit, and essence of din. However, such a lack, which does not imply total ignorance, does not lead to
extremism or excessiveness, but rather to their opposites, degeneration and laxity. It implies, however, semi
knowledge. A person sometimes genuinely believes-that he knows all there is to know, that he is a scholar. But
actually he has no more than a hodgepodge of undigested and unassimilated "knowledge" which neither enhances
insight nor clarifies vision.
F. Recognizing that there is very little hard data on how many Europeans have extremist views - other than votes
for political parties that are considered extremist - once a group is involved in electoral politics it is a little less
extreme than those who contemplate murder as a political act. This absence of data makes law enforcement and
effective outreach into extremist sub-cultures virtually impossible.
1. Strongly recommends that extremist forces, after the Second World War, have never had
so much influence over national parliaments as they have today. We need more European
leaders to express their opposition to the growth of extremism. We must have the courage
to stand up and protect our common European values".
2. Relationships are essential in most efforts to support a person in disengaging from
extremism. The personal
character of a mentor or other relational worker is crucial for succeeding in supporting a
disengaging from extremism. Perseverance, empathy and enthusiasm are some of the
personal traits of a good relational worker.
3. Radio and TV stations can play a prominent role in overcoming extremism by airing
programs about these issues with the help of qualified scholars and intellectuals in the
4. In the efforts to curb extremism, a legal cure is necessary. This means making laws
concerning extremist activities, amending the Religious Unity Act and terrorism laws, and
enacting laws that facilitate rehabilitation while in detention.
5. In the international efforts to overcome extremism, the most successful method in
overcoming extremism is rehabilitation. The experts also advise the use of knowledge and
reason to change the belief of extremists.
