HISTORICAL CRISIS COMMITTEE
Over the past decade, the middle east has been facing the crisis of internal and external riots and extremist activities. Not only has it shook up the roots of these middle eastern countries, but the events have turned out to be detrimental for the western nations as well. Does the situation call for an international policy? Does it call for an intervention of external countries? Or should the domestic affairs be left to the nations of the middle east? From the rise of Al-Qaeda in Iraq all the way to ISIS losing control over Mosul. VITTUC brings to you the next agenda of the Historical Crisis Committee - 'Eradication of Extremism and Peace Consolidation in the Middle East'.
COMMITTEE FOR DEVELOPMENT & EXPLORATION OF SPACE
The race to conquer space commenced in the 1950s with the United States (‘US’) and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (‘Soviet Union’) engaging in a series of initiatives that included satellites launches, manned spacecraft and nuclear detonations. As we progress into the 21st century, space warfare is no longer fiction made in movies but a reality waiting to happen with dual purpose technology having capabilities for both defensive and offensive purposes. Does this call for a need to develop and enshrine new principles in order to, at the very least, clarify to what extent the tenets of general international law apply directly to outer space?
COMMITTEE LEGALISATION OF BANNED TECHNOLOGY
The birth of the Internet heralded in a new era of cheaper, faster, and more efficient commercial transactions. This new type of commerce - also known as “e-commerce” - has brought with it a number of new and complicated social, legal, and economic challenges. The question raised is whether or not these currencies even fulfill the functions of money. The issue at hand is how to control these currencies, establishing regulation so that they can be suitable for used and be used internationally.
COMMITTEE FOR CONTROL & REGULATION OF CYBER SPACE
Our daily life, economic vitality, and national security depend on a stable, safe, and resilient cyberspace. The major threats that we millennials are facing are digital in nature and they come by the names “WannaCry”, “Meltdown” and so on. To deal with this growing threat, does the government have the right to demand the companies to turn over data in the name of national security? Does the government have the right to invade the privacy of the citizen? This March, answer these conundrums.
