The Fifth Committee on Administrative and Budgetary Matters
What happens when a state loses control? Millions of people around the world aren’t led by a state, but by rogue actors. Groups from gangs to terrorists’ rule over civilians with an iron first. The first line of defense against this is the United Nations Peacekeepers. The Committee on Administrative and Budgetary Matters will decide the fate of the program protecting these people. Are the Peacekeepers effective and worth the money or have they failed in their mission? Should the money be spent on exciting new protection initiatives or is the whole endeavor a lost cause? Will you be the one to fund and revitalize a protective program or will the entire operation unravel before your very eyes?
All delegates in General Assembly committees are required to write and submit a position paper one week prior to AmeriMUNC VI. This position paper should be a broad overview of your country's formal stance on the topic being discussed in committee. The position paper should also give a description of actions taken by your country to address the committee topic, and how you plan to respond to this topic in committee.
The deadline for all position paper submissions will be Friday, January 25th, 2018 at 11:59 PM EST. Position papers should be submitted via a portal that will become available in early January. General Assembly chairs will take the quality of position papers into account when deciding awards.
