Special Political and Decolonization Committee

The Special Political and Decolonization Committee (SPECPOL), also known as the Fourth Special Political and Decolonization Committee, is the Fourth Committee of the United Nations General Assembly established with the aim of addressing political matters. At first, it was created as a Special Political Committee to assist the first committee, Political, andSecurity Committee. It underwent several changes in 1978 and 1993 and turned into its current form: Special Political and Decolonization Committee.

The committee deals with a variety of issues including but not limited to peacekeeping, international politics, outer space, and decolonization. Although SPECPOL cannot make legally binding decisions, its possible action recommendations and views are very important and influential in promoting positive outcomes.
