Committees

Each committee will be moderated and instructed by two chairs. Their responsibility consists in ensuring the compliance of the rulebook by every delegate throughout debating time. Whenever the committee tends to get stuck, the chairs should make use of their guidance wisely and make sure that the committee is heading towards a resolution on the issue.

Crisis committees are special because they do not have a parallel in the real United Nations. Instead, the Joint Crisis Committee strives to teach diplomacy, cooperation and political debate through the simulation of an invented crises which is occurring in the very moment. These can be wars, threats of war and diplomatic conflicts between various states and non-state actors. The delegate’s role is to ensure the best outcome for their country/position and, if possible, to change the outcome of the crisis for the better.

The World Bank (WB) is an international bank whose main goals are to end extreme poverty within a generation and boost shared prosperity. It was set up at the Bretton Woods Conference in 1944, is located in Washington DC and is traditionally presided by an American, although at the moment that is Jim Yong Kim. The institution is working on trying to achieve the Millennium Development Goals and wants to achieve this through helping countries to become good places for investment, create jobs and promote sustainable growth via the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development and the International Development Association which focuses mainly on poverty reduction in the poorest countries. Voting powers in the two organizations of the World Bank are proportional to the shares the respective countries have in the capital of the World Bank, leading to developing countries having little saying.
