Committee Introduction 


The International Law Commission (ILC) is an expert board established by the General Assembly in 1947 to "initiate studies and make recommendations for the purpose of ... encouraging the progressive development of international law and its codification". The ILC drafts articles and formulates legal principles to be considered by the General Assembly.

The General Assembly Sixth Committee, or the Legal Committee of the General Assembly (GA6 Legal) is the primary GA forum that considers legal questions. The reports, draft articles and recommendations of the ILC are frequently considered by the Legal Committee when devising proposals on legal matters to be presented to the GA.

The ILC-GA6 Committee is a higher-intermediate committee that requires critical thinking, understanding of international law, and most importantly, adaptivity. 

Delegates of this committee will be convening in meetings, first in the capacity of expert members to the ILC, then subsequently, as country representatives to the Legal Committee of the GA. This innovative dynamic not only enables multifaceted approaches, but also opens up a variety of conditions and concerns that would otherwise be overlooked in most Model UN committees.

Topic Introduction 


What does it mean to have the right to self-determination? 

In the context of decolonization, it might mean “to be free from alien subjugation”. In terms of the right as a principle, the right to self-determination stands in symmetry with the concept of liberty - to be free to exist, and free from intervention. 

However, in the context of law, this is no longer a question of values, but a question of definition, of its constituents, effect, enforcement, status, and relationship with current-existing law.

Do we have a definition to the right of self-determination? Who are the “peoples” eligible to the right? What does it mean to be able to “determine one’s own political status” and “to pursue their economic, social, and cultural development”? What happens if the right conflicts with the principles of territorial integrity and sovereignty? Is the right customary, 𝙚𝙧𝙜𝙖 𝙤𝙢𝙣𝙚𝙨, or 𝙟𝙪𝙨 𝙘𝙤𝙜𝙚𝙣? These are all underlying questions that await your answer.

Our issue touches upon the fundamental relationship between individuals, communities, and states, challenging delegates to structure their arguments through the interweaved descriptives and normatives of international law, to interpret the issue, both as an expert, and as a country representative.
