Dear delegates, chairs and diplomats,
I would like to welcome you all to this year’s crisis. I promise to do my best to guarantee an exciting few days of meeting, backstabbing, lying and (within the strict framework of the rules) cheating. Now for a little about myself.
I’m Anthony, I’m 21 years old, born in the USA and studying International Relations here in Karlsruhe. I helped establish and run my university’s MUN club as vice-president for a year in 2015-2016. In the last two years, I’ve attended around four MUN conferences, three of which were JCCs. From the conferences I have attended there have always been rumors that I was the most shifty and untrustworthy delegate. I hope you’ll all get the chance to see why in this year’s crisis simulation. Why did I choose to become crisis director? Simple, I just love making peoples jobs harder. After falling in love with Crisis for the first time at KAMUN two years ago I learned to adapt to the fast paced and exciting environment of anything goes free-wheeling, however I noticed a trap that crises frequently fall into. To me it seemed that the previous crisis’ I’ve been in have always boiled down to a vacuum where parties always try to directly outgun each other as fast as possible. Therefore, I hope to make this year’s crisis unique as director by appreciating and encouraging more creative and alternative solutions than the simple realism based logic of everyone trying to have the bigger stick.
Therefore, I ask both delegates and chairs this year to come prepared for every curveball that my god-complex can throw at them, every idea that can help them achieve their goal, and every ounce of motivation to bounce back in the face of imminent defeat.
My team and I wish you all luck, you’re going to need it…
