United Nations Security Council (UNSC)

Chair: Kaleigh Shupp
Assistant Director: Jillian Coehlo
Crisis Director: Jade Rosenblum

Committee Topics:

Topic A: China-Tibet Conflict:

Since the 13th century, China has considered Tibet to be a part of the Chinese nation, and thus should be ruled by Beijing. However, many Tibetans do not consider Chinese authority to be legitimate. Tibet declared itself an independent nation in 1912, although it did not receive widespread recognition from the international community. This committee will be working to formulate a solution to the Tibet-China sovereignty problem and will deal with accusations of cultural suppression, debates over sovereignty, and whether or not the UN should continue involvement in Tibet.


Topic B: Regional Religious Extremism:

Since 9/11, there has been a growing threat of religious extremism especially in the Middle East. The rise of ISIS in recent years has only increased concerns about religious extremism, specifically in the Middle East and Europe. However, religious extremism and terrorism are problems throughout all areas of the world. This committee will be dealing with the question of how to combat religious terrorism and extremism throughout the world as well as the numerous consequences of regional religious extremism.
