Crisis Update

Delegates are asked to be as familiar as possible with the broad aspects of their country’s views and policies. They should have an appreciation of their international standing and general outlook on the world. Essentially, as it is a Crisis  – be ready for anything! In particular it is assumed that delegates will be paying close attention to current news stories.

For those who need broader hints, please be advised that the Crisis may well involve a theme relating to international terrorism. In addition, the likelihood is it may also involve the internet…

Crisis committee – reminder and advice

To all delegates coming along to BMUN VII for the Crisis Committee, a reminder that you will NOT be informed of the actual crisis until the day itself. All you know is that the geographical centre of the crisis will be the continent of Africa. So focus your preparation on getting to know your country as well as possible. Consider too some likely scenarios, including natural disaster plus potential terrorist activity on a large-scale. Be aware of your likely allies as well as those countries who might hold opposing views to your own.
