SECURITY COUNCIL

The President of the Security Council is Olivia Hall

Guide to the Procedure in Security Council

Welcome to Security Council at MUNHigh 2022! This committee is for the most advanced delegates who love a challenge (and have always wanted to use the “Demands” operative clause)! We will be debating two very different, but equally pressing, issues. The issue of the Mainland China-Hong Kong Conflict has raised concerns about the safety of journalists, the rights of the people of Hong Kong, and police violence. This conflict may seem confined to the parties named but, as we know at MUN, an issue that affects any citizen of the world is one that must be attended to by all. The second issue we will be debating is Western Foreign Policy and the respective role of the UN. In the Afghanistan conflict we have seen that decisions made by the USA and UK have had an impact on millions of lives. It is up to you, as delegates, to decide where the line is drawn. At what point does sovereignty lose out to protecting livelihoods?

Here, the goal is the same but the format is slightly different to the other committees. The most notable difference is the presence of the P5 who have veto powers with which they can strike any clause that violates their national interest. Security Council has the power to provoke real change and I hope that we can strive to pass clauses that achieve this over the weekend.

Looking forward to a weekend of successful debate,
Olivia Hall
President of Security Council
