The Schengen Territorial treaty is an agreement established in the European Union legal framework. The treaty consists in a space where the free movement of people between the Schengen member states is guaranteed. When a country accepts to be part of the Schengen Area, has to adopt all Schengen rules and eliminate their internal border controls, creating a unique border. Nevertheless this Treaty has also lead to unconformities in member and non member States of The Schengen Area, causing the proposal of abolishing it. Topic A
Subtopics A Subtopic A1: Increase of unauthorized immigrants, criminals and potential terrorists in the Schengen Area. Subtopic A2: Reinstallation of internal border controls in Schengen member States without a previous permission from the European Commission or a general consensus between all EU members.
In 1990, world leaders and heads of state of all member nations compromised to accomplish the Eight Millennium Development Goals by the year 2015. The Eight Millennium Development Goals have the objective of changing global development mostly socially, environmentally and economically. Topic B
Through the years, the approach to this goal has increased, as there are developed countries which have reached and exceeded their particular goal on aiding developing countries in their basic needs. Right now, 3 years away from the deadline, most reports of the UN about the goals approach point out that achieving the MDG’s on time depends on the progress and fulfillment of the Eighth Millennium Development Goal: Developing a Global Partnership for Development.
