United Nations Security Council

As the single most powerful UN entity, the Security Council is responsible for addressing all issues threatening international peace and security. The Security Council must work to create effective resolutions with clear and powerful language that will have tangible results in the real world. In facing this immense responsibility, the committee will utilize several tools of diplomacy usually unavailable to any other agency. The veto power of the Permanent Five (P5) members gives the UNSC a uniquely intense flair that is unlike any other committee.

The Security Council’s position of premier importance on the world stage will be reflected in its rendition at VMUN 2017. This committee has been specifically designed for the most experienced delegates. As such, position papers are mandatory and must be submitted by Sunday, January 8, 2017, at 11:59 pm.

Topic A: Reunification of the Korean Peninsula (Click to show summary)

Topic B: The Situation in Eritrea (Click to show summary)

Andrew Yun | Director

Andrew is currently a junior at Port Moody Secondary School. Since stumbling upon a Model United Nations conference in grade 7, Andrew has been unable to stop. Having delegated and staffed at countless conferences – big and small – in the lower mainland, he can confidently say that VMUN is one of his absolute favorites. For him, the best part about MUN is the wonderfully talented people he gets to interact with and learn from at each and every conference. Outside of MUN, Andrew loves participating in debate, fencing and youth–led business ventures. Andrew is excited to direct the Security Council and looking forward to seeing all the delegates in January. Stick around to hear his Director’s speech at the closing ceremonies because he never fails to make them unforgettable!

Crystal Ma | Chair

Crystal is currently a senior attending Interlake High School in Bellevue, WA. When she is not designing the 78th iteration of the PACMUN logo, Crystal is either captaining for the Interlake Girls Swim Team, inhaling goldfish crackers, or filling out the same field trip form for the umteenth time, inundated by her school’s egregious bureaucratic red tape. She is thrilled to be staffing at VMUN 2017, where she can craft invigorating debate and fuel her own intrepid passion for international development. Crystal cannot wait to watch the assiduous efforts of delegates payoff during a weekend of engrossing debate, collaboration, and diplomacy.
