Terrorism and Minority Rights

The topic of Human Rights, specifically in regard to terrorism and minority rights, is significant in enabling the members of the OIC to promote, protect and preserve the interests of the Muslim world as a whole. Both terrorism and minority treatment deserve a reconsidering, especially in light of the influence of Sharia Law and based on recent backlash the OIC has received from Human Rights Watch and other human rights-based organizations.  

Palestine

Based on the reactions to the May 2018 United States embassy opening in Jerusalem, the OIC needs to revisit the prevalence of the Israeli occupation of Palestinian territory. It is of vital importance to maintain international peace, as well as to uphold and revisit the Istanbul Declaration on “Freedom for Al Quds” and decide our reaction to the eminent conflict.

This is a double delegation committee.
