Delegate Registration for VMUN 2018 is now available. Please contact us for any inquiries.


Council of People’s Commissars, 1917

In this committee, delegates will be representing members of the Council of People’s Commissars. Set in 1917, delegates are tasked with overthrowing the Provisional Government and denying reactionary, foreign involvement while still engaged against the German Empire in the First World War. Participation in this committee requires a large degree of role-play and devotion to one’s role; delegates will be immersed in the conflict, strife, and strategic manoeuvring of the period as they try to bring Socialism to Russia.

As a continuous crisis committee, The Council of People’s Commissars is most appropriate for experienced delegates. Position papers are mandatory and must be submitted by Sunday, January 7, 2018, at 23:59. More information about position papers specific to this committee can be found on page 3 of the Background Guide.

Tessa Furey

Tessa Furey | Crisis Staff

Hello delegates! My name is Tessa Furey and I am excited to say I will be acting as your chair at VMUN 2018. I started my MUN journey as a tiny (and terrified) grade eight, and I know how difficult it came be to speak up. As a now (hopefully) more knowledgeable grade 10, I know that experience doesn’t matter as much as you think- caffeine and power naps are the reality behind success. Outside of MUN, I enjoy buying books and then forgetting to read them and spending more time arguing about politics than any of my friends can handle. I look forward to meeting all of you and I hope that I can help make our committee a success.


You can contact the Director at russia@vmun.com. Any questions regarding the committee or its debate procedures will be answered by email. Position papers must also be submitted to this address.
