A Letter from the Chair
It is my pleasure to welcome you to WINMUN II’s premiere General Assembly: the Social, Humanitarian, and Cultural Committee. SOCHUM is a committee designed to welcome delegates of all skill levels -- testing the leadership skills of experienced delegates while introducing newer delegates to the intricacies of Model United Nations. SOCHUM is by no means a small committee -- be prepared to collaborate and compete with an entire auditorium of delegates. You will participate in active and substantive debates, pass notes to communicate with delegates from across the region, and propose creative and feasible solutions -- all while furthering your own country’s agenda.
Our topics for debate during WINMUN II will be A: Human Trafficking, and B: Strengthening Humanitarian and Disaster Relief Assistance. The scope of these two topics epitomizes the diversity of SOCHUM as a committee -- the 30+ countries we will be hosting will have varied and contentious positions and solutions. Background guides with more specific information on these topics will be posted shortly.
Our committee will debate serious problems of international distress. many of which the real United Nations struggles to suppress. You -- the delegates of this committee -- are the leaders of the future, and I am excited to see you debate multifaceted and comprehensive solutions to problems of today.
Feel free to send an email if you have any questions. Good luck, and have fun! :)
