Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development

The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development is an intergovernmental economic organisation with 37 member countries, founded in 1961 to stimulate economic progress and world trade. It is a forum of countries describing themselves as “committed to democracy and the market economy,” providing a platform to compare policy experiences, seek answers to common problems, identify best practices, and coordinate domestic and international policies. Most OECD members are high-income economies with a very high level of human development, collectively comprising nearly two-thirds of global nominal GDP.

This committee is designed for both beginners and experienced delegates alike. Position papers, although strongly recommended, are not required. However, delegates who wish to be considered for an award must submit their position papers by Sunday, January 13, 2019, at 23:59 PST. More information about position papers can be found on page 3 of the Background Guide.


You can contact the Director with any questions regarding the committee or its debate procedures. Position papers must also be submitted to this address.
