SPECIAL SESSION OF THE UNITED NATIONS SECURITY COUNCIL
ON NUCLEAR NON-PROLIFERATION: THE CASE OF IRAN
Berlin, 29 July 2010
On 17 May 2010, Iran agreed on an initiative by Brazil and Turkey to store about half of its low-enriched uranium in Turkey. Just one day later, the permanent Members of the United Nations Security Council announced a draft resolution aiming to impose a new set of sanctions on Iran stating that the deal violates previous Security Council resolutions which call for a complete end of Iran's enrichment activities.
In order to deal with the new developments, the Security Council has convened a Special Session on 29 July 2010 in Berlin. Together with Diplomats from Iraq, students from all departments are invited to represent the current Members of the Council.

Additionally, there will be two mandatory preparation meetings (1 July, 15.00 - 16.30h; 21 July, 16.00 - 18.00h) where all Delegations will meet and participants are introduced to the topic and the Rules of Procedure. Please note that Delegations are asked to prepare a one-page Position Paper. The Conference language will be English.
