COMMITTEES

Southeastern United Nexus Model UN is aiming to provide its delegates with dynamic, educational committees. Students are pushed to heighten their understanding of the international system through an unprecedented set of simulations, ranging from standard UN committees like the UN Commission on Narcotic Drugs and the High Commisioner for Refugees to crisis simulations of national cabinets and political organizations. We hope to give you the best of the best by providing rigorous and innovative simulations that challenge delegates and foster thought-provoking debate.  Going beyond traditional assemblies and cabinets, the flagship committee of the conference will push the boundaries of MUN and will force delegates to confront the changing nature of international politics.

UNITED NATIONS COMMISSION ON NARCOTIC DRUGS

United Nations Commission on Narcotic Drugs

APPROXIMATE COMMITTEE SIZE: 40

TOPIC: The Balkan and MENA Region Drug Route 

Presenting the first committee to be simulated at Southeastern United Nexus Model UN: United Nations Commission on Narcotic Drugs. The CND reviews and analyzes the global drug situation, considering the interrelated issues of prevention of drug abuse, rehabilitation of drug users and supply and trafficking in illicit drugs.  This committee will be hosting discussions on the Balkan and MENA Region Drug Route. The region forms one of the major sources and transit points for the trafficking of and sale of illicit drugs. Despite the strict laws that attempt to curtail these activities in this region, the crime rate pertaining to drug trafficking has only increased in the past few years. It is now the responsibility of the delegates of the Commission on Narcotic Drugs to come up with constructive solutions which consider the long term impact of drug trafficking in the region and ensure the safety of human society.

UNITED NATIONS HIGH COMMISSIONER FOR REFUGEES

United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees

APPROXIMATE COMMITTEE SIZE: 40

TOPIC: Refugee Influx from the Horn of Africa 

Presenting the second committee to be simulated at Southeastern United Nexus Model UN: United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. It aims at providing international protection and assistance to refugees and, together with governments, finding solutions to their plight. It also works to protect stateless persons and to prevent and reduce statelessness. At SUN MUN 2020, the UNHCR will be focussing on the refugee influx from the countries situated in the Horn of Africa. Most African countries face severe migration issues due to unstable political environments and dismal living conditions in their hometowns. While they leave their homes in search for more stable living environments and lucrative economic opportunities, they more often than not land up in countries which are no different from where they came from in the first place. Register for the UNHCR delegates, for this your chance to finally give this issue the importance and the attention that it truly deserves.

JCC: EAST TURKISTAN LIBERATION ALLIANCE

JCC: East Turkistan Liberation Alliance 

APPROXIMATE COMMITTEE SIZE: 15

TOPIC: Liberation of Turkistan  

Presenting the first half of Southeastern United Nexus Model UN’s flagship committee, the East Turkistan Liberation Alliance. The land of East Turkistan was barbarically torn away from its people, their dignity stripped, their freedom annihilated. The Uighur voice was muffled by the ruthless Chinese regime, years of their culture drowned away by the Communist authoritarianism. The oppression which had been silently inflicted upon the Turkistan spirit shall be tolerated no more. We welcome you to rise against the common evil in this meeting of the covert East Turkistan Liberation Alliance; an ally-ship based on fraternity for the downtrodden brothers and sisters in what they now proclaim is 'Xinjiang'. This winter, the most prominent liberation forces shall come together to claim what rightfully is theirs. Get ready for the most dynamic committee in SUN-MUN 2020.

JCC: THE CHINESE POLITBURO

JCC: The Chinese Politburo 

APPROXIMATE COMMITTEE SIZE: 15

TOPIC: Ensuring the Security of the Xinjiang Region  

Lastly, we present our final committee for SUN Model UN 2020: The Chinese Politburo. The rising tensions among the fringe groups in the Xinjiang region is one of the most pressing issues for the Chinese Government. The problems are limitless, and time to find solutions very little. The Government has to deal with not only the increasing terrorist tendencies in Xinjiang, but also deal with the international fallout of strengthening security of Xinjiang, rendering it free from those who do not believe in the notion of Chinese nationalism. Prepare yourselves delegates, for this committee is not for those with faint hearted. Prepare yourselves, for you have just decided to be a part of the most unique Model UN experiences ever.
