The proceedings of CJCMUN 2017 will be divided among seven committees, each headed by their respective Chair and Vice Chair. The Secretary General will oversee proceedings of the conference.
A population of 7 billion people, living in 198 different countries, divided due to a million reasons but united by one organisation - the United Nations.
The UN works with 6 main organs, all handling different portfolios and working to eradicate one impediment after another. But one organ among them is supreme; one organ has the power to bind countries in resolutions; one organ can decide the fate of the world.
The 40 of you have immense power, and with that great power comes the gargantuan responsibility to represent and protect 7 billion people judiciously. As you step into this conference we expect you to leave your individual identities at the door and adorn the character of the most skilled diplomats of the world as that, is what you will be.
Welcome to the United Nations Security Council delegates, you are, in the pre-eminent organ of the world community.
Just out of the misery and the destruction that followed the first instance of a "world war" that we've seen, the first and only world organisation, the League of Nations, has to do everything in its capacity to prevent another catastrophe. With military threats and proxy wars in place and potential rivals working to oust each other in the international forum, another such event seems almost inevitable. The responsibility of the League of Nations, is more vital now than ever.
Delegates as you walk into this committee, you are expected to forget everything you know about the past; you've been given an opportunity to re-write it, seize it. Let's change the course of history.
The Disarmament and International Security Committee stands for the discussion of all threats to peace affecting the global community at large. Known as "The First Committee", it is the only main committee of the General Assembly entitled to verbatim records coverage. It's mandate covers debate and formulation of solutions to the problems faced in the international security regime. Originated primarily to discuss the problems arisen by the discovery of atomic energy back in 1946, it now functions to maintain international standards of security, frame principles governing disarmament and regulation of armaments, and promoting and fostering international peace amongst conflicting nations.
Being a man or a woman has a significant impact on health, as a result of both biological and gender-related differences. The health (mental and physical) of women and girls is of particular concern because, in many societies, they are disadvantaged by discrimination rooted in sociocultural factors. UN Women advocates for States to provide and better coordinate health services for women survivors of violence, and help support non-governmental partners providing services for survivors. We work to end practices that bring danger to mother and child, including child marriage, female genital mutilation, dietary restrictions, and all other forms of violence and discrimination against women and girls.
As a committee, we need to work with governments and the civil society to design laws, policies, programmes and services that remove barriers that stand in a woman’s way. Their mental health must be considered within the context of their own lives and these cannot be achieved without equal access to basic human rights: autonomy of the person, education, safety, economic security, property and legal rights, employment, physical health, including sexual and reproductive rights, access to health care, and adequate food, water, and shelter.
As one of the most important platforms for women, we set global standards that countries are expected to accomplish, not just for the betterment of society but for the upcoming generations as well. The importance of receiving quality mental healthcare should surpass any difference, whether male or female, rich or poor.
Arguably no country has a history as rich and varied as India. The Historic Indian Cabinet 1971 is CJCMUN's first India-themed committee and promises to mix the intricacies of Indian politics with tactful diplomacy to result in one amazing three-day experience. Delegates will get a chance to step into the shoes of the Indian decision makers in the year 1971 and reshape history. Knowledge of one's country's history is the first step in the path towards development. Freeze date: 17th December, 1971.
The world is at war. The tides of aggression have swept through nations and their fragile alliances broken. Global politics has been shattered, dormancy of global military and economic powers have been broken and all the world is now set for what is, a clash of titans. The immense power at play, the dynamics of nations and the myriad of back fires and back stabbing is now in the hands of a select few. You, the delegates, are now at war and the dais compels you to do whatever it takes to win it.
Media, in the contemporary world, is the method of communication that governments and people alike depend on for information and opinions. Without the freedom provided to most press agencies today, human beings would get sucked right back into the Dark Ages. The sharing of ideas and views is what gives people access to their governments, and it is rightly said that media is the fourth organ of democracy. The International Press Corps at CJCMUN embodies this very spirit, and shall be the committee that reports the events occurring throughout the conference. The IPC shall be as crucial to the MUN as the press is to the functioning of a nation.
Giving exposure to the working of the United Nations and its impact on combating global challenges
cherish the experience of unraveling the workings of the world diplomacy
