NATO

Writer: Maxwell Y. and Preston L. 

The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) is a group of countries that work together to prevent weapons of mass destruction (WMDs) like biological, chemical, and other dangerous warfare weapons, and the spreading of people using misinformation to manipulate others. NATO is pivotal in protecting everybody on a global scale by preventing these issues from developing in the new digitalized age of civilization. This digitalized era has led to many problems like cybersecurity and hackers. NATO focuses on bringing peace to all countries so that there won’t be nuclear wars that endanger our world and misinformation from spreading. 

There are two main focuses of what NATO does, which are to stop WMDs from spreading and to strengthen cybersecurity to stop the spread of misinformation and hackers. There are many creative solutions to these problems of the two sides of threats. For cybersecurity, one of the many creative solutions is to adopt an interface that enables people to submit information for fact-checking. For WMDs, their solution is that NATO member states should prosecute individuals involved in the illicit trafficking of WMDs-related materials and technology through digital channels.

Heading into the informal consultation, here's what happened. Delegates edited a document that one of two sides of the committee drew. One side was about WMDs and one side was about misinformation. They made a contract or document about their issue and then every delegate looked at the document and discussed whether they agreed or disagreed, going forward looking at the document inch by inch.

In the debate, we had the delegates of different countries arguing, agreeing, and disagreeing. It was very heated as Iceland disagreed with most of the document and other countries got upset at Iceland’s arguments. It took a long time, but in conclusion, all of the delegates managed to reach a formal agreement with each other.

In the end, everyone agreed with each other and came to a conclusion. Even though the debates were very heated, the delegates eventually came to a consensus with each other in the end.
