GENERAL ASSEMBLY FOURTH COMMITTEE: SPECIAL, POLITICAL AND DECOLONIZATION COMMITTEE
United Nations General Assembly consists of six committees which include Special Political and Decolonization Committee (SPECPOL) as the Fourth Committee established in 1993. Initially, SPECPOL was created to deal with issues involved trusteeship and non-self governing territories. After the end of the trusteeship system, SPECPOL started to deal with a variety of subjects which include those related to decolonization, Palestinian Refugees and human rights, peacekeeping, mine action, outer space, public information, atomic radiation and the University for Peace.
Since SPECPOL serves as one of the six committees of the General Assembly, resolutions passed by SPECPOL are non-binding for 193 member states.
