Agenda A: Militarisation of the Arctic

Welcome note from the chairperson;

Hello delegates, it is a pleasure to welcome all of you to the IIMUN.
Similar to the famed aspects such as international extremism and nuclear warfare, the militarization of the arctic has also proven to be a matter of grave concern to the UN in recent times
To many, we have bought this catastrophe upon us, inconsiderate use of natural resources and depletion of the ozone due to constantly increasing forms of pollution. The melting of polar ice caps is the primary reason we face this situation today. The race to occupy unidentified natural resources, huge untouched land masses, and for formations of military strong holds etc, brings about a question whether or not should the arctic be militarized?.That’s the basic question every delegate has to take a stand on and every resolution must answer.
Militarization of the arctic will open various new doors for the world, it shall prove to boost economies and strengthen the defenses of many countries however every coin has two sides, the militarization is ought to bring about great unrests and clashing interests thus proving to be a threat on global peace and harmony
International co operation is key, the council must come up with reasonable solutions, which shall look to better the global economy and maintain international stability. With Canada, the US, Russia and a number of Nordic countries all pressing to stake their claim in the Arctic - which is likely to develop into an area rich in commerce and natural resources - what should the UN do to mediate. Does anyone nation have a right to what lies under the Arctic ice and, if so, how will it be decided? With the Russian Security Council predicting a war within a decade how best should the UN resolve these issues?

1)General presentation and introduction of the issue.
