General Assembly Plenary

Standard committee

The General Assembly Plenary will discuss a topic decided upon by the delegates, to be voted upon as the first order of business for the committee. As there is no set topic to prepare for, all delegates should prepare their position papers on the topic that they would most like to see discussed by the committee at large.

Rise of the Roman Republic

Crisis committee

Rome is in crisis. Carthage has sent their most formidable general, Hannibal, to destroy the Italian peninsula. War with Greece and her city states has created a state of perpetual danger for the city of Rome. Domestically, the plebs of Rome are angered by the inequality between patricians and plebeians and are demanding social change. Led by two brothers, Tiberius and Gaius Sempronius Gracchus, they seek reforms that could upset the status quo. Only through military prowess, cunning political strategy, or corruption and mob rule, can one change the fate of the republic of Rome for generations to come and claim fame and wealth for their family.

Spanish Civil War

Crisis committee

 Citizens of Spain, dark and perilous times now rule our young republic. Just months ago elections were held, giving a broad spectrum of communists, liberal republicans and even anarchists a majority of seats in the Spanish parliament. Yet many on the right are not content with these results. Carlists train in Navarre, officers throughout the military are plotting a rebellion, and the falangists act as if there will soon be a war in Spain. But these are not the only problems the government’s ruling coalition, the National Front, must face. The government itself is rife with division and lacks control over the leftist trade unions and militias that have come to wield power across the country. Confusion is thick in the air and no one seems to know what the fate of Spanish republic may be, or how long one can continue to say “Viva la república”.

Marvel: COENIN

Crisis committee

There is an idea to bring together a group of remarkable UN representatives to see if they can effectively control how “enhanced individuals” operate. To see if they can work together now that we need them to control the heroes that nations never could. This idea has come to fruition with the creation of the 7th committee of the UN General Assembly: Control of Enhanced Individuals (COENIN). Americans, Sokovians, Nigerians, and Wakandans died due to some of these heroes’ actions. These nations, among others, demand justice and accountability. The task ahead of COENIN: create a large resolution - an accord - to control how “enhanced individuals” such as the Avengers and their associates operate internationally.

Algerian Revolution

Joint Crisis committee

After nearly 130 years of occupation, the rumblings of independence are beginning to stir in the French colony of Algeria. In 1945 in the town of Setif, protests by Algerian nationals killed over 100 French, provoking a brutal response by the army which killed over 6,000 Algerians. Since then radicalization and resistance have been on the rise, despite the presence of over 500,000 French troops in the country. As either French administrators or Algerian nationalists, you must navigate this increasingly brutal and wide-reaching conflict, in the pursuit of either the continued existence of French Algeria or independence and a new future for a free Algerian peoples.
