Specialized Committees

Specialised Committees, also known as Intermediate Committees, are smaller than General Assemblies/Beginner Committees and consist of more specific agendas. While Beginner Committees such as WHO focus on broader aspects, Intermediate Committees tend to focus on a more specific aspect of a larger issue. Intermediate committees consist of countries that are heavily involved in the committee’s field, therefore they are selectively chosen and are unique to each committee.
