CRISIS COMMITTEE

 

Crisis operates under a completely different format from regular Model UN committees, with delegates representing individuals organised into cabinets instead of states and simulating a fictional or historical event in real time. Crisis chairs will either be Directors (who, through accepting or rejecting requests and issuing directives, direct the course of the simulation) or chair-delegates, who act as Heads of Cabinets. The chair of a contemporary German cabinet in a Crisis simulation would play the role Angela Merkel, for example, whilst in said cabinet a delegate would play the role of a German minister, such as Wolfgang Schäuble.

The intensity and fluidity of Crisis make it one of the most challenging committees for both chairs and delegates. In addition to being the first university-level MUN conference in the UK, Cambridge has also established a high reputation for Crisis with some of the most original and pioneering takes on this dynamic format.

Cambridge has in the past five years run Historical Crises (simulating the French Revolution at CUIMUN XIX, the War of the League of Cambrai at CUIMUN XX, and the Greek-Ottoman Wars at CUIMUN XXI), but we will spice things up a little this year, and move away from history. The coming Crisis will be a four-cabinet Crisis.

The Directors, Backroom Staff and Chairs will be announced Summer 2017.
