SOCHUM Day 2

The Social, Cultural, and Humanitarian Committee focused on the reintegration of criminals. When prisoners are released back into society, they are stereotyped and looked down upon by their fellow citizens. The delegate from Kuwait along with several other countries spoke of ideas such as halfway houses, which allows released prisoners to be involved in society in a successful, productive way. The delegate from Turkey suggested a transitional justice system that Turkey itself has been perfecting for the past several years. Delegates from South Africa, Senegal, and Djibouti all worked together on a super-resolution that puts emphasis on restoring justice for criminals such as supplying education and jobs.
