Five College Model UN: British Empire vs. Iranian Shah joint crisis on Bahrain

by KFC on April 4, 2011

One of the joint crisis committees at the Five College Model UN conference was the British Empire vs. the Iranian Shah on the issue of Bahrain’s declaration of independence which has political, economic, and military implications to the region. Iran is infuriated by the secession of its 14th province while Britain seeks to hinder Iranian influence in the region. Check out the committee!
