Topic: Cybersecurity—How to effectively prevent cyber warfare between states?
A new topic for a new year! The first topic in this semester has been designed for discussing and trying to solve the complex problems that exist in our cyber world. During activity weeks, the group members gather together to learn recent events of cyber wars, to debate for multiple problems and possible solution, and to analyze special case studies to reinforce their understandings about the standpoints of the countries they represented on these cases.
In the fourth session of this semester, we successfully convened in a relatively small Security Council consisted of five permanent members and thirteen non-permanent members. Chairing a Security Council was not an easy task, because the P5 countries (the permanent members) were always the dominant side on solution drafting and lobbying. The topic was discussed and debated in a very detail way, and many delegates were trying their best to persuade others to sponsor their resolutions. As the debate went on, two resolutions were handed in—one from the non-permanent members, and the other from the P5. The P5 members suggested to establish an organization which scrutinizes all the suspicious cyber activities, and they tried to persuade other nations to join while they would have the major power of running this organization. The other nations doubted this idea at once, but compromise would eventually occurred. The debate lasted about an hour, and the decision of emerging two resolutions and restricting the power of the P5 countries in the cyber organization was unanimously agreed, and the Security Council finally passed a final resolution which combined all delegates’ hard-working.
Congratulations to all the delegates that have participated in the Tuesday Group of MUN Club. Next topic will soon be designed, and I wish the next conference will be successfully held as well!
