The proceedings of CJCMUN 2019 will be divided among eight committees, each headed by their respective Chair and Vice Chair. The Secretary General will oversee proceedings of the conference.
Giving exposure to the working of the United Nations and its impact on combating global challenges
Global Mass Surveillance is a region of international law which the international community has simply failed to address with adequacy. As of today, as shocking as it may seem, there exists no international law document which only addresses global mass surveillance. In the modern world, where the internet is a major part of our lives, Global Mass Surveillance is a topic with growing importance. It deals with the potential of states dismissing citizens’ right to privacy under the premise of national or international safety. While raising questions about morality and practicality, and addressing matters of national and international security, this committee guarantees unparalleled scope for debate. In an epic clash of individualism and collectivism, CJCMUN 2019 presents to you GA- DISEC.
What if the very people who we consider to be the world’s future, our 'Youth' are exposed to outbursts of violence and crime, both as victims and perpetrators?
Juvenile delinquency and crime have become a growing concern not only for developing countries but also for developed ones. The leading causes for minors to partake in illegal actions range from socio-economic factors, lack of educational facilities to violence against minors and various other problems that have not been adequately dealt with by nations and their legislations. A nation’s policies on juvenile delinquency often struggles to balance the tension between rehabilitation and public desire to punish the young criminals, thereby influencing juvenile crime policy across the world and making its implementation all the more complicated. ?
Delegates, in this world of misdeed and violence, the future of these children is in your hands. Introducing to you the United Nations Commission on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice. ?
It was August 1914 when French troops first fired tear gas grenades into German channels along the borders between the two nations. While the definite subtleties of this first tear gas dispatch are fuzzy, historians mark the Battle of the Frontiers, what the World War I's first conflict between France and Germany came to be known as, as the birthday of what might be classified "chemical terror " in the present day. ‘Little boy’ and ‘fat man’ killed millions in Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan. The effects of this terror continue to strike fear in many. The utilisation of microscopic organisms and toxic substances to cause terror are the new frontiers of war. That is the reason the battle against terrorism must be worldwide and why it must be embraced with power and speed. Propelling innovation and expanding strains between nations, it is no big surprise that these are the new boondocks of war.
It is widely accepted that women and girls suffer the most during humanitarian crises. Study after study confirm how existing gender inequalities worsen, discrimination and exclusion deepen, risks and incidents of gender-based violence increase, and how achievements and progress on women’s rights retreat into the shadows of war. For women, more often than not, this marks the point of no return. Regardless of this, they ought not to be viewed exclusively as casualties of war.
Time after time, conflict after conflict, we have failed to properly engage women and girls in the plans, responses and recovery efforts that are launched on their behalf. Their contributions and experiences are underplayed, taken for granted or, at worst, simply ignored. In this age of growing persecution, will you choose to listen or will you, like others before you, turn a deaf ear to the misery that confronts you?Presenting to you, the Commission for the Status of Women.
The year is 1963. Shouts of “Say it loud, I’m black and proud” echo through the streets of Birmingham, Alabama as hordes of African-American protestors as young as 6 years old march for their freedom.
2nd May, 1963 marked the beginning of 8 days that tore at America’s conscience. The nation bore witness as Birmingham police led by Commissioner Eugene ‘Bull’ Connor aimed high- pressure fire hoses at, set vicious dogs on and thrashed black men, women and even children who wanted just one thing — to be treated the same as white Americans.
Following a short-lived victory marked by the signing of an agreement to release hundreds of protestors from prison, disaster struck again as prominent black leaders like Martin Luther King Jr. and his brother Rev. A.D King were targeted in bombings.
Does the ‘Land of Opportunities’ favour a single race, or is every citizen given the chance to be a part of the 'American Dream'? How much longer should the Blacks, abused and outcast in the very country of their birth, suffer? What will you decide to do? Appease bigotry or oppose it?
Presenting to you, the Historic US Emergency Summit - Birmingham Riots.Please note - This is a semi-crisis committee and will be portfolio based.
The year is 1930 and the global economy is on the brink of collapse. Stock-markets have crashed, trade has ceased and the banking system has shattered, with no chance of an immediate recovery. The USA’s economy has been hit by one of the greatest economic crises that mankind has ever seen and is rightly being called the “The Great Depression”. This devastating crisis has not only affected the economy of the United States but has torn apart global economies. Time is of the essence and this world needs the immediate setting up of an economic order. A set-up that promises that the world of both stability and security for the foreseeable future.
Welcome to the Historic Economic Crisis Committee (HECC) where the best minds with economic aptitude combined with some quick thinking can surely help to save the world and help the global economy recover. It’s time to put on your thinking caps, for this world needs you!Please note: This will be a Semi-crisis committee.
A country which has just tasted freedom, a country which just broke free from the shackles of colonialism, is yet again on the brink of collapse. The nation lies in ruins, the air reeks of anger. With people ready to kill anyone who gets in their way, the apex organ of the United Nations is tasked with fixing a broken state.
Welcome to the 'Giant of Africa.’ Welcome, to Nigeria. Merely 9 years after its independence from the British, the discontentment of the people with the new government has led to a military coup, a counter-coup, ethno-religious riots and political persecution of residents in South Nigeria. The country is divided between government loyalists and the secessionists of the Biafran state. This conflict stems from political, economic, ethnic, cultural and religious tensions in the aftermath of the decolonisation process. The foreign belligerents in the Nigerian-Biafran War line up in a rather odd way, with eternal foes coming together against previous friends. As the people look up at the Heavens and cry out for help desperately, can you diplomats pull Nigeria out of hellish times?
Delegates, presenting to you the most challenging committee of CJC MUN 2019, the Historic Security Council (1969).NOTE: This is a double-delegation continuous crisis committee.
In 2019, the debate over whether Freedom of Speech and Press are fundamental rights is over. The challenge now is to determine the limitations to be placed on these rights, if at all. With the rise of sub-cultures like Neo-Nazism, libertarian free speech activists have to re-examine their position.
The Freedom of Speech has been imperative in world changing phenomena such as the suffrage movement. However, it has also been used as a tool to spread harmful messages, or more popularly called ‘hate speech’. Politicians who come under fire from the free media often shy away from a civil discourse and retort with statements that intend to demean the press.
Are we too quick to dismiss opposing ideas as hatred? Is the Freedom of Speech used to spread false propaganda or is it a useful method to weed out bad ideas, and identify good ones? What repercussions should the spread of false, sensationalised information have?
Presenting to you, The International Press Corps.
