United Nations General Assembly: Special Political and Decolonization Committee (SPECPOL) | Beginner

What is SPECPOL ?

A UN committee that addresses issues related to decolonization, self-determination, and political conflicts in various regions of the world.

The Exploitation of Natural Resources in Africa

Delegates should collaborate together to discuss the wealth of the African continent which has been stolen by colonizers, and this has yet to be stopped. For decades Europeans have been exploiting the many natural resources from diamonds to precious metals, even crude oil. The effects of colonialism still haunt the continent till modern times making the rich continent poor. The issue has been ongoing for decades with little improvement observed in the economies of the African countries. The urgency of this matter shouldn’t be overlooked. Neocolonialism has prevented this continent from thriving and reaching its true potential, but that doesn't mean we can’t change it. The prosperous future of Africa can become a reality.
