Delegate registration for VMUN 2022 is now open!

United Nations Security Council

As the single most powerful UN entity, the Security Council is responsible for addressing all issues threatening international peace and security. The Security Council must work to create effective resolutions with clear and powerful language that will have tangible results in the real world. In facing this immense responsibility, the committee will utilize several tools of diplomacy usually unavailable to any other agency. The veto power of the Permanent Five (P5) members gives the UNSC a uniquely intense flair that is unlike any other committee.

The most prestigious body at VMUN 2022, this committee is specifically designed for experienced delegates. Position papers are mandatory and must be submitted by January 28th, 2022, at 23:59 PST. More information about position papers can be found on page 3 of the Background Guide.

Since her first interaction with MUN driven by pure curiosity 2 years ago, she has furthered her newfound drive for international diplomatic engagement and public speaking. Starting from a delegate who only spoke once in her first conference to navigating her way through the committee room, Lina developed her passion for MUN steadily. In her spare time, Lina can be found taking walks with her cat, working on the latest art project, and running after sunsets, all while satisfying her love for tangerines. Lina wholeheartedly looks forward to meeting all the delegates at this iteration of VMUN.

Shiwei

Shiwei Chen | Assistant Director

Not long ago, Shiwei entered the Model United Nations scene in Vancouver as a curious eighth grader, wishing to experience the same event that his brother had put so much of his time in. Since then, Shiwei has been to numerous Model United Nations conferences, and passed many more directives and resolutions. Outside of the Model United Nations community, Shiwei enjoys hanging out with his friends, going out for long walks, and adding far too many things onto his daily to-do list. Having thoroughly enjoyed his previous experiences at VMUN so far, Shiwei welcomes everyone to participate in this upcoming iteration, and he hopes everyone in his committee experiences a weekend of socialization, rapid writing, and engaging debate!
