Crisis Committee

This year we will be running a crisis committee, where the topic of discussion will be known but the specific question to be debated will be distributed on the day. The crisis for BMUN VII will be a crisis in the African continent. Can all delegates ensure they have undertaken thorough research! This crisis question will be debated using the American system of MUN.

Dystopian Committee

For the first time at BMUN, we are holding a dystopian committee. The delegates in this committee will be given an especially detailed briefing paper that they will have to work closely with, as well as the email address of the Head Chair for any specific questions.

• The question of defending the new nation of Urasia from an unknown disease born from the side effects of biological weaponry used on them by the USA
