The third committee of the UN General Assembly, SOCHUM, carries the goal of solving humanitarian problems around the world. However, it has been hard to solve some of these problems due to the political polarization of the world. Each time there was a way to solve a given problem, either the Western or Eastern bloc countries have opposed this decision and, therefore, it was not implemented. Yet, SOCHUM is dedicated not to stop trying to solve major humanitarian problems and, therefore the committee will meet again in the year 1990 and to try and solve the issues of LGBT rights and xenophobia.

Now, it is up to the delegates to decide upon what they are going to do: Follow the path of history or draw a path of their own. The delegates' performance will shape the flow of the committee and the BHMUN'21 Team will shape their crises in accordance with the flow.
