“In a shield, the World State’s motto, COMMUNITY, IDENTITY, STABILITY.”
The year is 646 Anno Fordi (A.F) – or 2554 Anno Domini (A.D) according to the pre-modern calendar. Almost five centuries of global peace have ensued since the establishment of the World State. Our world has replaced isolation with community, prejudice with identity, and conflict with stability – we live in the golden age of human civilization.
Yet in the midst of serenity, men and women of subversion seek to disrupt the forces that hold society together. A secret society in North America, the Bones Order of Liberty, declared its status of insurgency earlier this year. The voice of liberty is one of seduction and temptation, and the Supreme Council of the World State is the only institution capable of containing such contamination.
As a continuous crisis committee, the Fictional Crisis Committee is most appropriate for experienced delegates. Position papers are mandatory and must be submitted by February 7th, 2020, at 23:59 PST. More information about position papers specific to this committee can be found on page 3 of the Background Guide.
Logan Wang | Director
Logan is a senior at St. Michaels University School. He grew up in Beijing and has lived in Canada since he was a freshman. Interested in political theory and international security, Logan’s favourite sleep-aid is math. Logan plays rugby for SMUS, and his favourite show is Friday Night Lights. Logan has directed four committees and he recommends beginner and intermediate delegates to start by getting to know everyone — make friends, and everything else takes care of itself. Logan is very excited for VMUN 2020 and looks forward to meeting everyone.
Jennifer Tsai | Chair
Jennifer is currently a Grade 12 student attending Fraser Heights Secondary School and is beyond thrilled to be serving as the Chair for the Fictional Crisis Committee at VMUN 2020. Ever since her first MUN conference in Grade 9, she has been mesmerized by the fascinating realm of global issues, eloquent debates, and the support community of like-minded individuals. Her journey of delegating, staffing, and organizing over 15 conferences has allowed her to acquire an array of invaluable skills and friendships that she will treasure for years to come. While not consumed in MUN activities, Jennifer can be found involved in community service, buried under heaps of science notes, catching the sunset on evening runs, or hunting for new dessert cafes with her friends. Jennifer hopes to make VMUN a memorable and enriching experience for all delegates!
