Topic A: Economic Ramifications of the Drug Trade
Chapter IV, Article 20 of the United Nations Charter proclaimed that, “The General Assembly shall meet in regular annual sessions and in such special sessions as occasion may require. Special sessions shall be convoked by the Secretary-General at the request of the Security Council or of a majority of the Members of the United Nations.” In this United Nations General Assembly Special Session on the Global Drug Trade, delegates will be discussing the global drug trade. Currently valued at $360 million, this illicit industry has ramifications on every country economically, in terms of labor productivity, economic development, and justice systems as well. This committee will evaluate the impacts of the illicit drug trade and outline solutions to mitigate the harm caused by it and curb the expansion of the global drug trade.
