General Assembly Third Committee


The General Assembly Third Committee (GA3) deals with agenda items relating to a range of social and humanitarian issues. The GA was formed as one of the six principal bodies of the UN by the United Nations Charter in 1945. It is the main deliberative, policy-making and representative organ of the UN. The GA3 is composed of all 193 members of the General Assembly. Resolutions passed by the GA3 are considered non-binding, but carry considerable political weight for Member-States. The committee discusses a wide range of topics including issues regarding human rights and reports passed on to them from the Human Rights Council. In addition, the committee discusses questions relating to the advancement of women, the protection of children, indigenous issues, the treatment of refugees, the promotion of fundamental freedoms through the elimination of racism and racial discrimination, and the right to self-determination.
