Committee Topics

Falkland2.jpg

Joint Crisis: Falkland Islands

The year is 1982. In the midst of the Cold War between two ideological superpowers a diminishing United Kingdom is suddenly thrust into a conflict across the world as an ambitious and emerging Argentina launched an unexpected military conquest of the Falklands Island. In this joint crisis delegates will be tasked with the complex issue of securing the island for their respective nations, through diplomacy or by other means, all the while facing pressure both internationally and domestically.

Specialized Agency: Ontario Liberal Party Convention

After a devastating defeat in the 2018 provincial election, the Ontario Liberal Party has been left with only 7 seats in the legislature and is no longer privy to official party status. Delegates in this committee will be tasked with winning back Ontario voters by balancing the importance of a new platform, a new strategy, and a new leader to unify the party and secure victory in the next election.

General Assembly: United Nations Office of Outer Space Affairs

Delegates in the United Nations Office of Outer Space Affairs will discuss the rapidly changing uses of outer space. The committee will tackle the commercialization and militarization of space in an equitable and sustainable way that ensures the use of space continues to benefit everyone.
