Sixth Committee

The United Nations General Assembly Sixth Committee (Legal) is one of the main committees of the United Nations General Assembly. The Sixth Committee is the primary forum for the consideration of legal questions in the General Assembly.

The Sixth Committee is primarily concerned with the formulation and application of international law. Throughout its near six decades of existence, the Sixth Committee has made many important contributions to the international community’s understanding of international law, the necessity of human rights and the promotion of fundamental freedoms. Since many of the world’s most pressing issues are either legal in nature or have implication for international law, the Sixth Committee is a UN body that most readably debates pressing global concerns.

All of the United Nations Member States are entitled to representation on the Sixth Committee as one of the main committees of the General Assembly.

As you all know, the Sixth Committee is the primary forum for the consideration of legal questions in the General Assembly of the United Nations. Our main task is to contribute to the application of International law: a pervasive system, which impacts upon many fundamental aspects of human existence. We are here in order to promote International peace and security as stated in the Charter of the United Nations. Our agenda is closely connected to this principle. Distinguished delegates, it is your job to develop a unified plan of action on  the «Responsibility of States for internationally wrongful acts». I look forward to fruitful and constructive debates, expect your great involvement into consideration of such a vital but also a challenging question!
