War of the Roses

joint crisis committee

Despite the nice name, the War of the Roses was a bloody conflict between the Yorks and the Lancasters, two factions who fought for control of the English throne, fought from 1455 to 1487. King Henry VI, a Lancaster, ruled for over two decades before the start of the war. However, His Majesty has shown bouts of mental instability, and the Yorks are using this time to put their own ruler on the throne. Great Britain is your battlefield, and power is the prize.

As a delegate in this joint crisis, you will represent one of the many lords loyal to either the Yorks or the Lancasters. You must work with allies to secure the throne, but you might have to use manipulation, persuasion, deception, and sometimes force to help your faction win the war. If you are lucky, you will survive and be granted lands and riches beyond your imagination. Small mistakes, however, could send your head to the spike.

Decolonization of Africa

Single crisis committee

The transition of any peoples from nomadic tribes and small kingdoms to nation states is a slow, precarious process with many intricacies and inherent difficulties. This process is compounded in its complexity to an unfathomable extent when discussing the overhaul of an entire continent from aggregations of territories to independent nations. That is the task before the delegates to this committee in the coming conference. Representing the departing western powers, your role will be to leave an Africa that is able to sustain itself after the damage dealt to it by the Scramble for Africa that lead to an entire continents’ derailment from its natural progression of history. The rotting logs of your legacies in these countries will be overturned and what lies underneath will inspire ire, intensify grudges, and instigate conflict. Can you extract yourselves from this troubled land without leaving it worse for the wear?

That is up to you.

Franco-Prussian War

single crisis committee

Since the collapse of the Holy Roman Empire at the hands of Napoleon over 60 years ago, Germany has been divided into small states. Now is the time for Prussia to rise up and unite the German people once more. As the Prussian General Staff, the delegates must assist Kaiser Wilhelm I and Kanzler Otto von Bismarck unite the German states while repelling the French, who fear what a united Germany could accomplish in the world. The fate of Europe hangs in the balance, and the time
for Germany to rise has come.

Sri Lankan Conflict

Single crisis committee

23 July, 1983 marks the day that the Sri Lankan Civil War officially began but the roots of the conflict predate this dark mark upon Sri Lankan history. Soon after independence from British Rule in 1948, the Ceylon Citizenship Act was passed, inciting discrimination and violent acts against Tamilian people in the country. Skipping forward to 1983, The Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), also known as the Tamil Tigers, began a campaign of violence against the Sri Lankan military and government who supported the majority Sinhalese population and overrepresented Christian Tamil minority. The crisis takes place soon after the ambush and killing if 13 army officers that sparked civilian (mainly Sinhalese) retaliation against theTamil population. This committee, consisting of government and military officials, LTTE representative, and foreign mediators from neighboring countries will have to act upon theethnic crisis and deal with laws and diplomacy between the opposing forces to settle this major conflict tearing the nation apart.
