joint crisis committees

The Joint Crisis Committees are very different from the normal MUN experience, yet equal even the United Nations Security Council in their complexity and challenge. The JCC consists of two independently-running subcommittees whose decisions and actions immediately affect the perpetual crisis at hand, thus providing for an experience like no other. The ritual raising of placards is replaced with international espionage, fast-paced decision-making, and incessant debates; all aimed to destroy the ideological enemy. What delegates will be asked to deal with is only partially revealed for your preparation; covert plots, terrible luck, and the well-meaning—or hostile—actions of the opposing committee together offer an unpredictable, volatile, and urgent, but undoubtedly exciting, experience. If the bloc as a whole is to succeed, the delegates must compromise, negotiate, and persevere in a battle of diplomatic wit; after all, there is a nemesis waiting, biding its time.

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.
