On 29 November 2012, the General Assembly of the United Nations conferred upon Palestine the status of a Non-Member Observer State.
This is widely considered a significant step forward towards full membership of Palestine. However, the admission of new members to the UN requires the previous recommendation of the Security Council. Palestine has submitted an application for membership already in September 2011, yet due to diverging opinion the Security Council has so far not voted on the application.
Apply now to debate this issue at a simulated session of the UN Security Council!
Members of the Security Council: Azerbaijan, China, Colombia, France, Germany, Guatemala, India, Morocco, Pakistan, Portugal, Russian Federation, South Africa, Togo, United Kingdom, United States.
Invited: Israel, Palestine.
Conference Fee: € 15.00 (for conference material as well as catering during the conference)
