KIIT International MUN


27-29 OCTOBER, 2017



1) The United Nations Programme of Assistance in the Teaching, Study, Dissemination and Wider Appreciation of International Law
2) Drafting of a Convention on climate change post Paris Agreement
The Sixth Committee of the UN General Assembly is the primary forum for the consideration of legal questions in the General Assembly. All of the UN’s Member States are entitled to representation on the Sixth Committee as one of the main committees of the General Assembly. Its mandate is based on article 13 of the UN Charter that states: “The General Assembly shall initiate studies and make recommendations for the purpose of encouraging the progressive development of international law and its codification.” While the authority to negotiate on new treaties is extended to other UN bodies, the Legal Committee focuses on general treaties and provides the framework for important treaty negotiations. Along with the annual reports of the International Law Commission, the Special Committee on the Charter of the United Nations, the Ad Hoc Committee established by Resolution 51/210 of 17 December 1996 on Terrorism, and the UN Commission on International Trade Law, the 6th Committee discusses issues regarding international relations, trade, terrorism, diplomacy, disputes among States, people, organizations, and their reflection towards law.
In the 1960s, for example, the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations and the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties were negotiated upon in the Sixth Committee. Further examples include the 1997 Declaration on Measures to Eliminate International Terrorist Bombings and the 2005 Draft International Convention for the Suppression of Acts of Nuclear Terrorism.

Kalinga Institute of Social Science (KISS)

With a total of 123 tribal students, the foundation of Kalinga Institute of Social Sciences had been laid in 1993. Since then, the institution has grown into the largest fully free and fully residential institute for the children of indigenous origin. Currently, the humanitarian institution sustains 25,000 children from 62 indigenous communities of Odisha.
These children are provided with free holistic education, vocational training, food, accommodation, health care, and other basic necessities. Over the next decade, the institution intends to educate 2,00,000 indigenous children, and has planned to set up its branches in ten more states, with support from the respective state governments, and the thirty districts of Odisha.

A number of prestigious international organisations such as UNESCO, UNICEF, UNFPA, as well as the US Federal Government have associated themselves with KISS for several initiatives and programmes that have been undertaken by the institute. With relentless dedication, KISS is determined to alleviate poverty by educating the poorest of the poor, and raise the educational standard, in order to sculpt a brighter future for the indigenous students it harbours.
