Session 3

Topic: Evaluation of the consequences of the application of R2P in the conflicts of Libya and Ivory Coast.

Formal debate

  • Kingdom of Saudi Arabia: considered the R2P has a good definition, but it is used in a bad way, because it created more instability. Considers the United States of America violated the R2P regulations, and wants to create reforms according to the problem. Thinks the intervention was unnecessary

  • United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland: states that the measurement should be applied only in a humanitarian and political way, not in a military one, without violence, in order to make a strong government but also protect its citizens

  • United States of America: every single action the delegation made on the delegation of the State of Lidya was in order to protect human rights, even the outcome of the invasion that was the assasination of the dictator. The Libya government was not a good government since it could not protect its citizens, calling it inefficient. The delegation proposes a reform on R2P, and adding governmental and management help. 

  • State of Libya: can't believe some delegations present agree with R2P considering the consequences this has brought to the country. Believes the United States caused the assasination of its president, and believes R2P violates human rights. There is no political stability, and murdering people will not solve anything. R2P is not being implemented as its definition. The delegation accepts the United States interim government, but prefers a reform because of its instability.

  • Kingdom of Saudi Arabia: proposes a conflict transformation, a system to peace systems. It starts with the development of changes in the process, leading to the presentation of a solution. Sovereignty, culture and religion are violated in the R2P, violating everything the delegation stands for. Agrees that applying R2P is totally incorrect, and it focuses only on the present and not the future of the nation. The Security Council should not agree with any intervention that is not the UN.  

  • People’s Republic of China: sovereignty should be protected above all, and proposes two conditions: the principle is invoked only with the confines of the 2005 World Summit Outcome Language and applying R2P does not result in significant reforms on the state political infrastructure. 

  • United States of America: the delegation does not want to completely reform R2P, it has the purpose to in addition to militarize the nation, provide aid to the government in order to help the protection of human rights. Expects the help of the DPPA and DPO to make these additions. 

  • State of Libya: considers how the countries implementing the R2P right now will be affected by the new reforms, and suggest an evaluation of each country's situation so that the reforms will not cause chaos. The delegation suggested the full stop of the R2P while it is implemented again after the changes, and for peacekeepers to be deployed meanwhile. Declares the R2P is violating sovereignty. The way the military is used in R2P should be changed. Considers economy is important but should not be the base of the reformation.

Summary day 2

This day was extremely productive for the committee, bringing a conclusion to the topic of mechanisms for the protection of fundamental rights during elections in countries with political instability. A draft resolution was redacted and passed by the delegations, bringing together the countries and reaching useful solutions, mainly with the support of the DPPA and the DPO, in order to reach education to the political parties and voters, and to implement a third supervising party. This resolution will also implement peacekeepers and Blue Helmets with the purpose of the reduction of violence. This resolution head block were the Ivory Coast and the State of Libya, and was supported by the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Republic of South Sudan, Russian Federation. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia releases a Press Release, affirming its participating but not its complet support, adding their own terms. With this, the debate of the mechanisms for the protection of fundamental rights during elections in countries with political instability.


In the third session, the second topic, the evaluation of the consequences of the application of R2P in the conflicts of Libya and Ivory Coast, was debated. The delegation stated their position, and two fronts were proposed. The complete evaluation and reassessment of the R2P, and opposite, the addition to governmental help.
