The Pacific in Crisis
Our idea is simple: the entire conference will operate as a United Nations Security Council simulation. In real life, the Security Council is not a stand alone body. Ambassadors in the Security Council are representative of their national governments. Foreign policy decisions made domestically influence policies and negotiations at the international level and vice versa. It’s a complicated process. This simulation is designed for delegates to understand how international cooperation works and the multifacetedness of the foreign policy decision making process.
In practice, this means AmeriMUNC’s 22 committees exist in one simulated universe. Whether it’s a crisis note from Supreme Leader Kim Jong-Un's Cabinet or a working paper in DISEC, any action— big or small — has the ability to affect every committee. It’s our take on a more realistic Model UN simulation.
This year, we've divided the simulation into separate thematic conflicts to push delegates towards addressing specific issues in Asia. Conflicts are not just JCCs; they are regional groupings of committees. Thus, it is entirely possible for two committees in two separate conflicts to interact. That being said, we envision inter-conflict interaction will be greater than interaction between committees in different conflicts.
