Committee's outline and faculties
The League of Arab States (LAS) is a regional organisation that consists of 22 independent Arab States in the Middle East. It was formed in Cairo on1945, initially formed by six members. Its main purpose is to promote and strengthen cooperation among its member countries. This league facilitates the political, social, economic, scientific, and cultural projects designed to advocate the interests of the Arab region. The Arab League is committed to respecting the established government in each member state by guaranteeing its independence and sovereignty and also offers to reconcile the event of a conflict between two or more states by opposing any recourse to force and violence. The principal institutions of the Arab League are the Council of the League, the Joint Defence Council, the Economic and Social Council, the Committees and the Secretariat General. These organs are used in case of any disagreement or conflict that could occur between the Arab States. In the case of the Joint Defence Council, it is composed of the Ministers for Foreign Affairs and Defence from all the member states.
The Arab League can defend itself by coordinating the military defense measures when armed warfare occurs between the Arab States. The Joint Military Force was created following a pact in 2015 made by the Arab League. This military body will aim to combat extremists groups in allusion to the Islamic State. On the other hand, it arranges policies, and all the Member Countries are obliged to comply with them, otherwise they could be expelled off of the LAS as well as Republic of Yemen, which was suspended from this organisation in 2012. This serves as a forum where the countries set up their political positions, and deliberate in common interests. It has also played an important role in preserving the Arab cultural heritage. It provides measures to combat organised crime and drug trafficking, as well as dealing with labour issues.
