Joint Cabinet Crisis has a very special status in Model United Nations. Unlike other Committees that have delegates representing countries and debating a certain subject, Crisis is about taking on the role of a specific character in history and paving their way through a moment in time, either following history or changing it forever… Joint Cabinet Crisis usually has two Cabinets – comprising of a certain number of delegates that are ‘on the same side’ to begin with. The Crisis occurs in real time, with delegates having to write directives in order to simulate their actions in the world of the crisis. Their position is not fixed and can change depending on how the Crisis develops.
For MUNOTH, we are happy to announce that the JCC will be about modern-day tensions on the Korean Peninsula, with the specific time period of the infamous September 2017 North Korean Missile Tests over Japan. The two Cabinets will be North and South Korea and delegates will have to weave their way through the intensity of a peninsula still mired in a decades-old conflict with region and international repercussions.
