COMMITTEES

The proceedings of CJCMUN 2016 will be divided among six committees, each headed by their respective Chair and Vice Chair. The Secretary General will oversee proceedings of the conference.

COMMITTEE 1
WORLD ECONOMIC FORUM (SPECIAL APPLICATION)

Since the dawn of the Republic, private individuals have tried to influence the system, often through unethical and downright dishonest means. In the current climate, this 1% is envied and loathed in equal parts. And yet, in times of crisis, the fate of the world often falls to the darkened boardroom rather than the halls of Parliament. Established in 1971, the World Economic Forum is the International organization for public-private cooperation. The forum is a non-profit Institute that holds its annual meeting at Davos, Switzerland. This is what we will be simulating. Over the course of committee, delegates will step into the shoes of world leaders like Raghuram Rajan, Donald Trump and Melinda Gates

COMMITTEE 2
EUROPEAN DRUG COMMISSION

The European Drug Commission has been appointed this year to deal with the recurring and scaling drug issue in the continent of Europe. From anonymous drugs brought in from Russia to dealing with armed mobs in Spain hired by cartels, the problems here are endless. Cocaine use has seen a significant rise in Great Britain in 2016. As part of the EDC, our aim is to frame clear cut policy that can be implemented by countries in Europe. The idea is to get countries to effectively agree and grant mutual consent to policy, not fight against each other based on regional problems. There lies the tricky part, but the power lies in your hands.

COMMITTEE 3
SECURITY COUNCIL

The possible threat of a cyber war with specific reference to cyber espionage:
From worms and viruses to DDoS and APTs, in the past quarter of a century the sophistication, impact and scale of cyber attacks have evolved significantly. However, as cybercrime has become more sophisticated, so has the security. States must take responsibility to equip themselves with the skills and resources needed to manage and respond to cyber attacks. Striking a balance between security and liberty contributed to international peace and security. Cyber Espionage involves methods used to disable networks, software, computer or the Internet to steal or acquire classified information of nations, states and organizations, for both state and non state. As the UNSC, the delegates are required to form some technical and long term solutions towards this implication of a probable cyber war.

COMMITTEE 4
KYOTO PROTCOL 2062

Time and time again, we have been asked to reduce our emissions. We have been asked to change our ways. But in the name of money and faith in the regenerative powers of nature, we had ended up passing the flag of responsibility which has now led to absolute destabilization. We humans have brought mother earth down to her knees. Technology has failed us, so has our luck. Mankind's last hope is to face the fruits of their ignorance at the 70th anniversary of the historic meeting at Kyoto. The earth is in your hands.

COMMITTEE 5
OFFICE OF THE UNITED NATIONS HIGH COMMISSIONER FOR HUMAN RIGHTS

"Freedom means you are unobstructed in living your life as you choose. Anything less is a form of slavery." - Wayne Dyer

Is slavery an issue of the past? An obstacle overcomes? Or are we looking through a rose tinted glass to save ourselves from harsh reality?
Here at the Human Rights Council we see beyond what is. According to estimates, today there are still 21 million victims, more than there were during the Atlantic slave trade that fall under the definition of slavery. Be it domestic servitude, bonded labor, child labor or even human trafficking. The problems are endless. But the power to change lies in your hands. We give you the power to change the lives of millions. Delegates make no mistake, with every step, you make history and in a world like ours, there is no room for error.

COMMITTEE 6
HISTORIC INTERNATIONAL LEGAL COMMISSION

"Insofar as International Law is observed, it provided us with stability and order, and with a means of predicting the behaviour of those with whom we have reciprocal legal obligations." - J.William Fulbright

Thus, we arrive at the adrenaline filled fervor of the Historic International Law Commission. Rarely seen across the Model United Nations spectrum, the Historic Law Commission takes you back to 1945, a few jaunt years after the conception of the United Nations, and, significantly, a couple of years after the world experienced the most cataclysmic war in Modern History. Amidst the two extremely thought provoking agendas, is a chance for international law enthusiasts and intellects to completely ch ange the face of international jurisprudence. With the goal being the establishment of an international legal standard against war crimes, the entire perspective of international legality and fundamental principles regarding Diplomatic Relations is in your hands. As Thomas Jefferson rightly articulated, “If a law is unjust, a man is not only right to disobey it, he is obligated to do so.” The Historic International Law Commission gives you the power to change the course of history. Take it.

COMMITTEE 7
INTERNATIONAL PRESS CORPS (SPECIAL APPLICATION)

"Journalism can never be silent; that is its greatest virtue and its greatest fault" - Henry Grunwald

Journalism is the first of many drafts in the formation of history. Two-dimensional in theory, multifaceted in reality, journalism is a paradox within itself. The Press Corps acts as a bridge between the common folk and the complex dynamics of the world around them. The truth must be expressed through the voice of the people, for what are journalists if not vox populi? Delegates, you are not assuming the role of journalists for the duration of three days, you are journalists representing various news agencies. With the difference between 'realism' and objectivity becoming more distinguished every passing day, you will need to find a balance between being true to your journalistic ideals and your responsibility to the global society. Words are singularly the most powerful force available to humanity. Delegates, your words have the power to create and the potential to destroy. So use them wisely
