grand council of the qing dynasty, 1853

The Grand Council of the Qing Dynasty transports delegates to 19th-century China, where they will struggle to sustain and transform an empire having ruled for more than two centuries. As intrigues and schemes rock the Forbidden City, the advisors and ministers of the Xianfeng Emperor will grapple with insurgent domestic rebellions and insidious foreign advances in their quest to restore the ailing empire to its former glory.

As a continuous crisis cabinet, this committee is most appropriate for experienced delegates. Position papers are mandatory, and must be submitted by Sunday, January 13, 2019, at 23:59 PST. More information about position papers can be found on page 3 of the Background Guide.
