Security Council

Specialized I

 

Chair: Dhruva Nistane

Co-chair: Christopher Roper

Turkey has become a nation of deep conflict. This is especially apparent in the brewing tension and violence between Turks and the Kurdish population. Stemming from this conflict are human rights violations, riots, distrust in the government, and varying cycles of insurgency and cease-fire. However, with the advent of widespread terrorism and Erdogan’s reaches for power, Turkey is facing oncoming conflict. The United Nations Security Council will be a fast-paced committee that will look to face and rectify the conflicts that riddle the streets of Turkey. Delegates will be able to wield the full power of the UNSC to its full potential to ensure peace and prosperity can once again flow through Turkey.

Bretton Woods

Specialized II

 

Chair: Thomas Wang

Co-Chair: Joy Zhang

Set in 1944, the Bretton Woods conference, formally known as the United Nations Monetary and Financial Conference, was a gathering of all 44 allied nations to regulate the international monetary and financial order after World War II, assembling the best economic minds from across the globe to debate how to best shape the post-World War II economy. The conference was held from July 1 to July 22, 1944 and over 730 delegates attended. This conference specifically dealt with draft proposals created by experts at an earlier Atlantic City Conference. The final proposals were designed to speed reconstruction after the Second World War, encourage international economic cooperation, and promote stability of exchange rates and financial flows. The work done at Bretton Woods had lasting international consequences, and delegates will have a chance to rewrite history knowing what we know today.
