COMITÉ DE CRISE: Mer de Chine méridionale

  

La mer de Chine méridionale est composée de plusieurs archipels convoités par la majorité des pays ayant une influence sur la région. De ce fait, des conflits de nature politique émergent de l’intérêt économique de la région. En 1968, des études auraient dévoilé que les archipels seraient riches en pétroles, une quantité s’élevant à près de 17.7 tonne. De plus, c’est un secteur important du commerce maritime, ce qui rend la mer de Chine du sud trois fois plus importante que le canal de Suez et cinq fois plus importante que le canal de Panama. Pour terminer, il s’agit d’un endroit riche en poisson, ce qui attire la convoitise de plusieurs pays créant du même coup un conflit par rapport à la souveraineté de la région et une escalade de la force.

CRISIS COMMITTEE: North Korean Conflict

  The year is 2024, U.S. Elections are in full swing and the growing aggression from North Korea, with a weakened Chinese economy, all sides are on a collision course towards conflict. During a “routine” North Korean nuclear test, an EMP burst caused blackouts all along the North and South Korean borders, forcing both sides to rapidly mobilize their military forces in response to the situation. Tensions are extremely high, with both sides considering pre-emptive strikes against the other. The Chinese and Americans have no interest in allowing the conflict to escalate, but neither side is willing to lose any more face. Both sides have convened their war councils in response to the situation, and are using an emergency line of communication, which is experiencing consistent technical glitches, intensifying confusion and paranoia.  

CRISIS COMMITTEE: The Fall of NATO

As borders collapse, and territories are annexed, NATO begins to crumble. A known adversary on your border has moved against your country. Will you be able to work not only as a team but also on your own to respond and keep your people safe? In this crisis simulation on the collapse of collective defence we will be testing your resolve and your ability to respond quickly to fast diplomatic and world change. In this simulation based on real world military plans and strategy you will be working against the best and the brightest military and political planners and strategists the other side has to offer.

GENERAL ASSEMBLY: Burden Sharing

The year is 2033. A series of natural disasters, epidemics, and civil conflicts have severely crippled the great powers of the United States of America, the Russian Federation, and the Peoples Republic of China. The economic fallout and power vacuum generated by these events have led to a worldwide instability across the international community. Desperate to avoid such catastrophes and prevent an utter collapse of states across the continent, the member states of the European Union have collectively committed the bulk of the resources into transforming the organization into an entity capable of handling issues facing the countries of Europe. You, alongside the other members of the newly formed "Greater European Coalition" (GEC), are tasked with safeguarding the peace, prosperity, and livelihood of all member states and their citizens. The decisions made by you and your committee will likely dictate the fate of Europe; possibly the entire world. In addition, while isolated and marred by calamity, the remnants of the old superpowers still struggle for dominance on the world stage, and Europe seems like worthy prey in the eyes of the Eagle, the Bear, and the Dragon. You have been warned.

GENERAL ASSEMBLY: Saudia Arabia & Qatar Conflict

In recent reports from the Qatari government, a major cyber attack was completed against a state-run news cast, posting articles showing that the Qatari government is supporting Iran and the Muslim Brotherhood. Although Qatar denied the authenticity of statements attributed to Qatari leader Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani, the articles nonetheless prompted anger from Saudi Arabia and its regional allies. The UAE has now accused Qatar of destabilizing the region by supporting "terrorist, extremist and sectarian organizations.” The Qatari government dismissed the allegations, saying they had "no basis in fact.” Ignoring these claims of innocence, Saudi Arabia and the UAE have officially severed all diplomatic ties with Qatar, forcing all diplomats to leave their respective countries and return home. The focus of this General Assembly is to discuss and debate the conflict at hand, and to come to a peaceful resolution to allow for diplomatic relations to be reengaged with Qatar and the rest of the UAE.
