TOPIC A:

With more than 2.4 million displaced people in the Lake Chad Basin, around 232,000 Nigerian refugees and an estimate of 37,500 people killed since May 2011; Boko Haram has become one of the most critical emerging threats in Western African. Although the terrorist insurgency was deemed “controlled” in 2016, it has maintained a strong presence not only in Nigeria but in Cameroon, Chad, and Niger.

The Islamic organization has been capable of adapting to diverse international and local governmental strategies. Additionally, it has vowed a direct confrontation towards the western ideals, including the basic principles of the United Nations. It is the Security Council’s duty to publish international accords that could pose a viable solution towards the situation concerning the state of Boko Haram.

TOPIC B:

Drugs are a sensitive topic throughout the world. Its consumption has lead to a massive effect in the international community. Crime is noticeably one of the principal consequences. As a matter of fact, drug cartels have created seemingly unnoticed transnational crimes. However, it is up to the Security Council to deem and propose solutions that could furthermore resolve crime wars not only in Mexico but around the world.
