The Arab League

The Arab League

The Arab League is not a standard Model UN committee; rather than a United Nations committee or suborganization, it is a regional organization outside of the UN network that provides a unique platform for delegates to explore the specific dynamics of Arab diplomacy and cooperation. Unlike global committees, the Arab League focuses on issues pertinent to its member states, offering insights into regional conflicts, economic integration, and cultural interactions within the Arab world.


The Arab League, formally known as the League of Arab States, is a regional organization of Arab countries in and around North Africa, the Horn of Africa, and Arabia. It was founded on March 22, 1945, in Cairo, Egypt, with the main aim of strengthening ties among member states, coordinating their policies, and promoting their common interests.

The Arab League started with six founding members: Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, and Syria. Over time, its membership has expanded to 22 countries, including Palestine, which is recognized as a member. There are also several observer states (e.g.: India, Brazil).


The Arab League is structured into the Council of the Arab League, the General Secretariat and several specialized committees like the Arab ECOSOC.


The Arab League has played a crucial role in various initiatives, such as mediating conflicts, supporting development projects, and representing Arab interests on the global stage. However, it faces challenges including political divisions among member states, regional conflicts, and economic disparities.
