The State Council of the Republic of Korea
Conflict: The Korean Korean Crisis
As domestic power struggles play out in tandem with the nuclear threat hanging over the Republic of Korea, scandal and turmoil plague the peninsula once again. Ministers of the State Council, you have the closest perspective to this international crisis. As all sides seem to edge closer to the brink of an unwinnable war, South Korea has been thrust into the limelight. As a vital ally of the United States, the importance of all of your actions has become indispensable. Can you resist the power in the North and balance the interests of the East and West? Or will your people know the devastation of conflict once again?
Position Papers are not required for the State Council of the Republic Korea.
Josh is an undergraduate student in the School of International Service with a focus on national security in northeast Asia. Originally from a medium sized town called Holden, Massachusetts, he attended a private college preparatory school called Saint John’s in Shrewsbury, MA. Josh also plans to minor in Chinese which he has studied for four years. As you can infer, this topic is quite pertinent and important to him and his studies. Academics aside, he has done MUN for four years and has attended conferences around the United States with American’s collegiate Model UN team. Outside of MUN, Josh has quite the list of hobbies and passions that encompasses everything from archery, service trips to Haiti, rowing crew, and horseback riding. So, if you have any questions regarding college, MUN, language studies, or foreign he would love to share my insight(questions are not limited to these, I’m easy going so just ask!). Josh is very excited to meet you all and see how you all will approach this now rising issue in northeast Asia.
John McAndrew is an undergraduate at American University studying International Relations with an intended focus on the Middle East. John’s from the same town as his co-chair, Josh, good ol’ Holden, Mass., but neither of them met each other until they came to AU. That was primarily because John went to Wachusett Regional, a public school absolutely superior in every way to St. John’s, and don’t let anyone tell you different. Lame one-sided rivalries aside, feel free to ask John questions about anything and everything, and he’ll do my best to answer them. Outside of MUN, John enjoys running, reading, video games, playing frisbee, and making lists about himself for other people to read. He can’t wait to meet all of you, and make AmeriMUNC VI a great conference.
