Chinese Revolution of 1949

Since the end of the dynastic era of Chinese history, China as a republic has been remarkably unstable and chaotic. This committee will be taking place in post-Imperial China, in the year 1935. Japan is consolidating its military might after World War One, and fascism is rising in the west. In this committee, delegates will be representing members of the Nationalist Kuomintang Party (KMT).

As a continuous crisis committee, this committee is most appropriate for experienced delegates. Position papers are mandatory and must be submitted by by Sunday, January 8, 2017, at 11:59 pm. More information about position papers specific to this committee can be found on page 3 of the Background Guide.

Tyson Dennis-Sharma | Director

To his own surprise and not without considerable setbacks, Tyson has survived the trials of high school and is now a senior at West Point Grey Academy. He is ecstatic to serve as your director for VMUN 2017’s Historical Crisis Committee as he has developed a passion for MUN. He appreciates its knack for allowing him to escape the tedious everyday routine. Tyson is also a competitive debater. Having ventured as far as Hong Kong and the Czech Republic, he values the opportunities to travel and meet new people that MUN and Debate can open up. In his spare time, he plays hockey, reads and enjoys the occasional movie or TV show. Tyson is very eager to learn what this committee has to offer.

Sean Lee | Crisis Staff

Sean is a grade 11 student at St. George’s School, and has been involved in Model United Nations since grade 8. Ever since his first conference, VMUN 2014, Sean has developed a strong passion for Model UN that has been growing to this date. Sean believes that Model UN provides students with the opportunity to interact with new people, along with the chance to engage in exciting debate and discussion around interesting and relevant world issues. Outside of MUN, Sean can be found eating unhealthy foods, taking unnecessarily long naps, or obliterating ankles on the basketball court. Sean hopes that all delegates will have a unique and unforgettable experience at VMUN 2017!
