International Labour Organisation (ILO)



Addressing the inhumane working conditions of cobalt mines in Africa

The International Labour Organization (ILO) committee is dedicated to addressing the pressing issue of inhumane working conditions in cobalt mines across Africa. These mines, predominantly located in countries such as the Democratic Republic of Congo, play a crucial role in the production of electronic devices. The committee’s primary goal is to formulate comprehensive strategies aimed at safeguarding the rights and well-being of workers involved in the cobalt mining industry. Delegates will meticulously analyze the current situation, delve into the underlying causes of the problem, and propose sustainable solutions. By means of collaborative discussions and negotiations, the ILO committee endeavors to ensure the provision of decent working conditions, fair remuneration, and the elimination of child labor within the cobalt mining sector. Such efforts aim to foster a more ethical and equitable global supply chain.



United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO)



Green Hydrogen

Join us for a dynamic discussion on the urgent need to implement green hydrogen as a powerful tool to mitigate the effects of climate change. This timely topic aims to gather delegates from diverse educational backgrounds to explore innovative strategies for adopting and scaling up green hydrogen technologies. By embracing an interdisciplinary perspective, we shall explore the immense potential of green hydrogen in decarbonizing critical sectors such as transportation, industry, and energy production. Together, we will engage in profound deliberations, exchanging best practices, policy frameworks, and investment prospects, all aimed at expediting the transition towards an ecologically sustainable and carbon-neutral future.

North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO)



Regulating Private Military and Security Companies

Regulating Private Military and Security Companies (PMSCs) poses a complex challenge in today’s global landscape, and it will serve as a thought-provoking topic for the upcoming KAMUN 2023. PMSCs operate in various regions, often without clear guidelines or accountability measures, leading to concerns such as human rights abuses and lack of transparency. The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) committee will delve into this crucial issue, aiming to develop effective frameworks that strike a balance between the legitimate use of PMSCs and safeguarding the interests of affected populations. Delegates in this committee will tackle multifaceted aspects such as oversight, accountability, and transparency in the operations of PMSCs.

United Nations Security Council

Expert – double-delegate


Establishing regional hegemony in the South China Sea

China’s pursuit of establishing regional hegemony in the South China Sea. Our committee will engage in rigorous analysis of the geopolitical dynamics, territorial disputes, and potential ramifications of these actions. Delegates will thoroughly examine historical context, explore diplomatic avenues, and propose measured solutions aimed at fostering peace, stability, and adherence to international law within the region. Through diplomatic negotiations and collective cooperation, the UNSC is resolute in addressing this sensitive issue, safeguarding the rights and security of all stakeholders while upholding the principles of sovereignty, peaceful coexistence, and the integrity of the United Nations. Let the comprehensive discussions commence!

Press Corps

Specialized/ Intermediate

The Journalists of the International Press Corps play a crucial role in reporting on the happenings, decisions, and events that unfold within the UN system. Their presence serves multiple important purposes, contributing to transparency, information dissemination, and accountability. Through regular press conferences, unfiltered interviews and ruthless investigative journalism, the press corps has the unique opportunity to work with impunity, rarely provided to any other delegate at an MUN. The IPC will play an important role in holding the Committees and delegations accountable for their every word and action. Journalists ask probing questions, conduct investigations, and report on potential controversies or discrepancies, thus fostering transparency and encouraging responsible behavior amongst committee members. This year’s press corps will be an integral part of the committee and it’s working by having much more expansive scope in its fact-finding mission to report what the committee doesn’t want publicized.
