committee topics 

 

AMUNC 2018 will be featuring the following committees. Listed are each committee's topics, directors and a short blurb (TBC).

Our conference will feature standard Model United Nations Committees, with many new ones, including the International Olympic Committee and ASEAN. Furthermore, delegates may also choose to take on the role of NGO's, businesses and media by registering as a Romaing Delegate.

Most exciting are our Crisis Councils. There will be three exciting, fast paced Crises Councils, where delegates will explore Renaissance Italy, the Congo Crisis and the Syrian Conflict. Read about them below.

Furthermore, we are proud to present the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation as the first Mandarin language committee at the Asia Pacific Model United Nations Conference.
