International Court of Justice (ICJ)

About the Committee

The ICJ functions differently when compared to other committees, it functions as the legal and judiciary body of the UN. It functions as both a mediator between states in conflict that have looked to it for such, as well as a legal consultant and advisor on matters concerning international law. The court does not function as a ‘punisher’ but rather a legal framework for international laws that permeate through to UN member states. Delegates here are far more free in how they as judges handle the issues brought before them. They must, however, have some form of legal back up to the verdicts and interpretations they draw upon during cases.

Topics

  1. Certain Iranian Assets: Iran vs the USA
  2. Kashmir Conflict: India vs Pakistan

Ever since she was a little kid, Alia Almansoori, a 17-year-old high school student has always been passionate about science. This passion carried on to this day and especially about biology. She currently works as a research intern at New York University in Abudhabi in hopes of enriching and growing this passion. Though she is very “science-oriented”, she enjoys debating about international topics and spreading social awareness towards these different topics.
