The UN General Assembly First Committee, otherwise known as DISEC, discusses issues regarding disarmament and international security. At No Borders MUN this year, DISEC will be debating the issue of regulating the use and production of nuclear weaponry. Delegates are pushed to evaluate the effectiveness of past treaties such as the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), discuss dangerous regimes such as North Korea and Iran, and find solutions for ongoing arms races. The issue of nuclear weaponry is multidimensional with many parts at play, and greatly influences diplomacy and international relations. DISEC delegates will recognize the interconnected nature of nuclear weaponry and global politics, while being able to reconcile this fact with regulating these weapons. Good luck researching! Please don’t hesitate to contact the chairs if you have any questions.
The Economic and Financial Affairs Council, also known as the Second Committee of the United Nations General Assembly, primarily focuses on international economic policies and global finance. Such focuses expands to ending poverty around the world, discussing currencies and financial problems between countries, understanding and taking actions on capital movements and market flow, and suggesting economic policies. The committee is also one of the central committees of the United Nations that allows all 193 member states to join the conference and overall, this committee pursues sustainable economic growth and development in all nations while maintaining peace and acknowledging the interdependent nature of the global economy.
Delegates, welcome to the Social, Humanitarian, and Cultural Committee (SOCHUM)! We are head chair Kai, deputy chair Stella, and associate chair Sarah. This year, our commettie sets its focus on these three respective agendas: advancement of women’s rights, the suppression of Uyghurs, and supporting Ukrainian refugees. We hope delegates will immerse themselves in the world of MUN and come up with feasible solutions to address these issues. Regradless of how expreinced you are, our chairs wish all delegates consider our conference more as an occasion of collaboration, communication, and reconciliation than as a competition. Please feel free to contact us if you have any inquires. See you all soon, and good luck!
In this committee, discussion and debate will be centered around the topic: “Life without the Avengers”. 70% of the world’s population, including every person with superpower genes, have been wiped off the face of the Earth. Delegates must collaborate to maintain peace and security on Earth in the aftermath of this irreversible catastrophe. Each delegate is either representing a character from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, or a representative from a continent (excluding Antarctica). However, prior knowledge on the Marvel Cinematic Universe is not required, since the background guide will contain all relevant information, but research on the characters is encouraged. Reach out to the chairs via email if you need any support, and good luck in debate!
In this crisis committee, delegates will represent members of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) and participate in the Manhattan Project, where the world’s first nuclear weapons were developed during World War II. Delegates would become physicists, chemists, or army officers and collaborate to facilitate the successful development and research of nuclear weapons. All members of the USACE must use all their knowledge on nuclear technology and world society to prevent accidents, dominate the other side of the world, and possibly even catch spies from other countries.
