What is the SOCHUM?
Social, Humanitarian and Cultural Committee (SOCHUM) is the Third Committee of the General Assembly. It directs on a broad spectrum of topics regarding the protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms. Primarily guided by the Universal Declaration on Human Rights, SOCHUM has a wide range of actions. The variety of social and cultural framework issues generates collaboration with various organizations such as UNESCO, FAO, and UNICEF that aid in the Committee's implementation of resolutions. In addition, SOCHUM is a forum where all UN Member States are represented within it, and negotiation and exchange of experiences between member States are amplified.
