A Letter from the Chair

Greetings Delegates!

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the second annual Winchester Model United Nations Conference!

Specifically, I am happy to welcome you to WinMUN II’s simulation of the International Court of Justice (ICJ). The ICJ is a specialized committee, tailored to delegates who are interested in being actively involved in debate with a crisis sized committee and General Assembly like debate. Specialized committees are very close to my heart and I believe that they are the best type of committee in Model UN.

I am very excited about the International Court of Justice and the case we will be debating, the UAE v. Qatar. I have been dying to see some debate on this issue and I know you all will deliver. Because we are not simulating a UN committee, delegates in the ICJ will not represent countries, but rather justices sitting on the bench.

Once committees are settled on (committees have been assigned to schools), I will send out a little Google Forms survey to get to know you as person, which will aide me in assigning you a specific justice.

I served as the chair for the International Atomic Energy Agency at WinMUN last year and had such a great time but I am exciting for all of you to sink your teeth into some complicated debate. I can’t wait to see you all in April!

 

Happy Researching!

Best,

 

Anna Flaherty
