Time Independent Ad hoc Crisis Committee
There's going to be a MUN Conference in my city, and I am chosen to be the delegate of the United States of America at the Time Independent Ad hoc Crisis Committee. I'm not really sure how this is works. Could someone please tell me what research I would have to do and the defences I need to be prepared with as the delegate of USA?
I'm not American, would this mean I have to learn some American history too?
You don't necessarily need to go in with a full knowledge of US history. Go into committee with an outline of major events in your head, and keep a detailed research binder filled with more detailed descriptions of historical events - how they panned out and perhaps even some revisionist theories.
My suggestion is to map out a list of potential crises you might have to deal with, and ask yourself if you'd be able to respond to those situations effectively in committee. You'll know you're prepared when you can run through them confidently.
