International Atomic Energy Agency

Agenda: Reviewing the application of IAEA nuclear safeguards in the Middle East in light of the Iran Nuclear Treaty

 Nuclear energy and radiation have been studied by humans since 1789. Marie Curie and Samuel Prescott were among the first scientists to examine radioactive materials solely for scientific purposes before applying what they learned to medicine and public health. However, the innovation and expansion of this technology have occurred at a rather fast speed and took the face of mass destruction and war. In 1945, The United States dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima, Japan and nearly 130,000 people were killed or injured as a result of it. 

 

The P5+1 aimed to slow down Iran's nuclear development to the extent that pursuing a nuclear weapon would take at least a year, allowing international powers time to respond. But in 2019, after US withdrawal, Iran began breaking agreed-upon limitations on its stockpile of low-enriched uranium and began enriching uranium to higher concentrations in reaction to the other parties' activities. The Iran nuclear deal's future is still uncertain. 

 

As a delegate in the IAEA at DSMUN 2022, you've been asked to think about and debate several topics that have come to light as a result of this global crisis. By the end of the committee, you should have all agreed on a worldwide moral code that will effectively prepare us all for the future of Nuclear Energy and Weapons.
