Welcome to an emergency special session of the United Nations Security Council. This special session has been convened to resolve instances of aggression between the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and the Republic of Korea (commonly referred to as North Korea and South Korea, respectively).
With uncertainty about the facts and a conflicting account of events from both sides, the Korean Peninsula is extraordinarily tense. Further acts of aggression could bring other regional actors into a conflict. The committee must work to preserve peace on the Korean Peninsula and, even more importantly, prevent the use of nuclear weapons in the region and beyond.
At the 2014 Hofstra University High School Model United Nations Conference, the Future Crisis committee will operate under the rules of the Security Council. Therefore each delegate will represent one of fifteen members of the Security Council. Delegates will be debating a number of crises between North and South Korea and should be ready for many twists and turns. Ultimately, delegates should strive to emulate the Security Council by resolving the complex issues on the Korean Peninsula by creating meaningful solutions at a steady pace.
