The crisis committee this year will focus on the unification of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and South Korea.  There will be two security cabinets, the State Affairs (DPRK) and the State Council (South Korea). Ministers of various affairs will discuss and debate the possibilities and issues related to the unification of the two countries, along with a representative from the USA (in the South Korean cabinet) and China (in the North Korean cabinet). The reunification has been a topic of consideration for both the countries since the late 20th century, however, there are many economic, cultural and security issues that may arise due to the reunification. The idea has been facing continuous opposition from the citizens of the countries. The committee will work on this idea while being continuously introduced to related crises. Delegates will work on directives to help solve them.


CHAIR

Marilie

Hi! I’m Marilie, third year student of political science and economics from McGill University. I am especially interested in international political economy and democratic theory. MUN and Model Parliament have been a very important part of my time at university and AUCMUN will be the 5thconference I staff. I have always found crisis committees especially interesting due to their rhythm and unlimited possibilities and I hope you are as excited as I am for this one! Generally, I am a huge traveler and love to meet people from all around the world. As a Canadian, Europe has always been a dream destination, but I have also been to South-America for a little while a few years ago. I am looking forward to meet you all! 


Lazare

Lazare is an Economics and Mathematics student at UCL. His first contact with MUN goes back to when he was in high school which he attended both in France and Italy thereby enabling him to experience conferences abroad and different modus operandi very early in his MUN journey. Having served in almost every quality, from delegate to Secretariat member, across Europe, he decided it is now time for him to take part in the world of MUN in a slightly different manner transmitting what he learnt from MUN through signing up to the UCLMUN Volunteering Project.                                                                                                                  Aside MUN (some would not believe it, but there actually is a life aside MUN), you can easily spot him at other UCL societies’ events as he is curious and passionate about lots of different disciplines ranging from sports (among others handball, table tennis, running, tennis) to Mah-jong passing by more scholar subjects such as current affairs whether political or financial, History or languages. He is himself fluent in French, Italian, English (as well as Latin, but probably will never find ever another speaker) and took up the challenge to learn Mandarin before the end of the year.         Wishing you a wonderful and memorable conference, he cannot wait to meet all of you and subjugate you under the yoke of North Korea!
