Founded in 1948 Social Humanitarian and Cultural Committee (SOCHUM) is the third committee of the six main committees of United Nations General Assembly (UNGA). It covers agenda items related to social affairs and human rights issues all over the world and is the place where the universal declaration of human rights was created. The committee discusses these issues along with examining the reports of the committees and councils related. The committee also addresses issues such as sexual crimes, protection of children, treatment of refugees, advancement of women, racism, sexism, facial discrimination. Unlike other General Assembly committees in the United Nations, SOCHUM works closely with other UN and non-UN bodies to increase social development in member countries.
