LOK SABHA

Agenda-(A): Examining the Role and Impact of Article 356 in the Context of Federalism in India 

Agenda-(B): Analysing the Implications and Feasibility of Implementing a Uniform Civil Code in India 

 

This world is no different than a pool, a pool of chaos. With a beam of order forever present. In this pool, I, Jaap Sardana have decided to chair a committee whose main purpose is to make the voices of its people heard. I am a student with a humble political interest, but a not-so-ordinary political belief. From the wise words of Socrates to the sweet loonies of Stalin, I have tried to understand all. But Indian democracy has a different tune altogether. The harmony of the biggest democracy is chaotic, yet it is beautiful. To understand its functioning, a person must read a lot, and then understand a lot more. This house is like a circus that is the most manipulative enigma present. The simulation however is ever more chaotic, yet it is fun, for in the chaos blurs the most obvious yet hushed questions.

 

I am honoured to partake in WELMUN 2024 as its Secretary General and the Lok-Sabha Adhyaksh. Throughout the conference. Shreyash Shah will assist me as my vice chair, along with Devardhan Agarwal, Krishnam Chawla and Adarsh Ranjan as its directors. Eshan Tiwari and Yash Jalan will serve as rapporteors. Lok-Sabha is the biggest committee in the 10th edition of the conference. Its size will be its greatest asset as the committee indulges in a solution-oriented and problem-solving debate.

This year the committee focuses on two agendas. One is the recently passed Uniform Civil Code. The other is Article 356 also referred to as the most controversial article in India’s Political History. I, as the chair, have high expectations from the discussions on the committee for the scope of debate is immense. From Governors’ rule to Presidential autonomy. To even redefine India's civil structure. The agendas allow for it all. A thrilling session awaits all, with a lifetime experience in the simulation of the

newly elected House of the People.

 

Expecting the voice of today

Agenda: Charting the Course: Revisiting the Arab-Israeli Conflict - Securing Stability for the Future

 

Dear Delegates, 

It gives me immense pleasure to welcome you all to the 10th edition of the Welham Model United Nations Conference. It is a great honour for me to serve as the Chairperson of the United Nations Security Council this year. I will be assisted by Samarth Agarwal as the Vice Chairperson, Chitraansh Chaudhary as the Director, Harshil Bhatia as the joint director and, Ahan Sparsh in the capacity of rapporteur. 

 

The freeze date for this committee is 6th November 1995 which is two days after Israeli Prime Minister, Yitzhak Rabin’s assassination.

The debate revolves around the implications of Oslo Accords 1 and 2 which have led to conflicts in the Israeli-Palestine region and violent protests by the citizens of both the states. The agenda for this year is not merely confined to research-oriented debate and discussion. Rather, delegates will have to think on their feet as the committee has been set in the past during an era of political and economic turmoil in the Middle East. 

Interim self-government in the Palestinian territory is a question that the international community still needs to ponder, after the recent events of the assassination of the Israeli Prime Minister. 

 

Stability in the Middle East is of paramount importance as the pacts and agreements made in the past related to the region have either failed or become the source of future conflicts themselves. Thus, one is expected to delve into the various subtleties of the agenda and take strategic steps before aligning towards a plan of action. 

 

Being the core organization of the United Nations with executive powers, exercise your wisdom and influence to the fullest in the most optimum way as the faith of the Middle East and especially the Palestinians lies in your hands, delegates. 

 

"The future cannot be built by forgetting the past. But it cannot be built by dwelling on it either. We must use history as a guide and move on from conflict towards a brighter future.” 

 

Awaiting a momentous experience ahead!

Agenda- Navigating the Ever-Evolving Labyrinth of Modern Weapons: Deliberating upon the development of weapons using modern technology and their global threats

I am truly honoured to be serving as the Chairperson for the Disarmament and International Security Council at the tenth edition of the Welham Model United Nations Conference. Alongside me, you will have Vedansh Munjal as the Vice-Chairperson, Atharva Saxena and Tejasva Dhandania as the Directors, and lastly, Kushagra Gupta and Harshit Agarwal as the Rapporteurs.

Formal introductions aside, now, let's turn our attention to the thing that piques all our interest, the agenda. We live in a world caught in the midst of turmoil, where before one regional conflict can be resolved another breaks out, a world where technology poses more of a threat than ever before. The committee shall enter discussions over the regulation of modern weaponry such as AI-powered weapons, neuroweapons, energy weapons, among others.

The agenda will quite literally place every delegate at the centre of a maze that is evolving every second. Before the creation of Daedalus becomes even harder to navigate, the delegates of various nations must deliberate and enter thought-provoking discussions in order to ensure that the weapons we created aren’t the reason our species ceases to exist.

The Executive Board expects delegates to find common ground while keeping in mind their foreign policy. In order to prevent impending doom, certain sacrifices are always necessary.

 

Hoping that the beautiful tale of humanity doesn’t come to a catastrophic end,

Agenda: Operation: Searing the Hydra’s Heads: Dismantling the Global Hydra of Organized Crime

Calling upon all the chiefs of law enforcement agencies,

The International Criminal Police Organization (INTERPOL) convenes here to discuss the global hydra of organized crime. 

 

As the custodians of international security and stability, it is imperative for us to address the growing menace of global organized crime collectively. Recent trends indicate a concerning escalation in the activities of transnational criminal syndicates, with the help of some governments, posing significant threats to the safety, prosperity, and sovereignty of our nations.

Organized crime has evolved into a sophisticated network, transcending geographical boundaries and exploiting vulnerabilities in our interconnected world. The proliferation of illicit activities such as drug trafficking, human trafficking, arms smuggling, cybercrime, and money laundering poses multifaceted challenges to law enforcement agencies worldwide.

It is a great honour for me to serve as the Secretary-General of the INTERPOL for the momentous 10th edition of Welham Model United Nations Conference. I will be assisted by Pranjal Baluni and Vedant Singh as the Presidents, Kabeer Shobit Vaish as the Vice President, and Koustabh Gupta and Angad Khurana as the Directors.

The threat posed by global organized crime demands a unified and resolute response from the international community and deliberations over the various modes of terror escalation displayed by various syndicates like Ndrangheta, Triad, Yakuza, Camorra. By prioritizing collaboration, legislative reforms, capacity building, and community engagement, we can stem the tide of criminality and safeguard the safety and well-being of our citizens.

INTERPOL supports all member countries in their efforts to combat organized crime and uphold the rule of law. Together, let us rise up to the challenge and resolve to confront this common threat with determination.

Awaiting the heated deliberations,

Tanay Pratap,

Secretary-General, INTERPOL

United Nations Human Rights Council

Agenda- Developing inventive strategies for delivering humanitarian assistance to individuals displaced by conflict amid escalating unrest in the Middle East and Eurasia.

 

"No one puts their children in a boat unless the water is safer than the land." - Warsan Shire

 

Dear Delegates,

In the chronicles of history, there are moments which define the political and geographical state of nations, influencing the lives of their citizens. In corners of the world, there are faces etched with stories of struggle and resilience, all of which stem from political indifference leading to conflicts. These are not merely statistics that appear in headlines, but individuals with hopes and dreams of living life as you and I. The United Nations Human Rights Council has been entrusted with the duty to promote and protect the human rights of civilians globally and we hope to bring change with all the power vested in us.

 

Grateful for this opportunity to serve as the chair for UNHRC this year, I’d like to tell you a bit about myself. Perceive me as a 17-year-old commerce student, interested in political affairs, literature and sports. Serving as the Tennis Captain, Vice-Captain of Hockey and Senior Editor at the Oliphant, my work ethic has always been to test my abilities, think out of the box and break boundaries. Alongside me, we have Eshaan Agarwal who serves as the Academics Captain of the school and also as the Vice Chairperson of the committee, Raaghavendra Govil and Vishrut Khanna as the Directors, and Aryan Khanna and Tanveer Madaan as the Rapporteurs.

 

The pivotal focus of the committee this year would be to come up with inventive and innovative strategies to provide humanitarian assistance to refugees from warxtorm areas in the Middle East and Eurasia. All global crises contribute to one major crisis, where human lives are threatened lading to nothing but human rights violations globally and hence leading to an influx of refugees. Through deliberations and constructive discourse, we aim to come up with effective strategies aimed at resolving the pressing humanitarian challenge.

 

With this, we look forward to deliberating upon the agenda and breaking down the issue, bringing peace to the world. In unity and resolve, let us strive to make a difference and forge ahead into a brighter future for all.

 

In pursuit of a brighter horizon,

 

Cordially,

Divyam Duggal

Agenda: Deliberating upon the effect of Strategic Choke Points on Economic Development and Social security in regards to Widespread Maritime and Territorial Disputes.

 

Dear delegates,

It is with utmost delight that I welcome you all to the 10th edition of the Welham Boys’ School Model United Nations conference, it is a great honour for me to serve as the Chairperson of the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) at WELMUN’24. Along with me, Atharva Agrawal will be serving as the Vice Chairperson, Adhyayan Gupta and Anagh Bajaj in the capacity of Directors, and Vinayak Raj as the Rapporteur of the Council. Before moving on to the agenda, I would like to tell you a bit about myself. I am a student in grade 12, pursuing Sciences. I am keenly interested in current affairs with particular emphasis on the international stage. I started with my diplomatic journey back in grade 10 and have been a part of the Welham MUN ever since, serving with the Executive Board for three consecutive years. Within school, I am the Secretary of the LRC Council and a Senior editor of the School’s Psychology and Science journals.

 

The Agenda for this year is Deliberating upon the effect of Strategic Choke Points on Economic Development and Social security in regards to Widespread Maritime and Territorial Disputes.

 

The Committee will enter debate on how the Strategic Choke Points developed during Maritime and Territorial disputes infringes the socio-economic fabric of the world at large. The agenda also sheds light on the ongoing conflicts of the world including the Russo-Ukraine and the Israel-Gaza-Iran conflicts and the Economic and Social Disparities faced by the affected peoples. At present, these conflicts have stirred tensions across the globe, which affect the Economies of the world and also deprive the people of inclusivity, dignity and basic Human rights. The Agenda will also require thorough research on the SDGs, MDGs, and regional as well as International policies and treaties

 

This agenda touches upon a delicate issue that in my opinion, will require decisive thinking; and thorough reading. It would require an understanding of the historical backdrop of these too. Moreover, I want all delegates to remember that in the end more than the style and the manner, it is the content and the diplomacy that matters in a Model UN Conference.

 

I sincerely hope each one of you has an amazing time at this 10th edition of WELMUN

Please do not hesitate to contact the Executive Board in case you have any queries.

 

Best Regards,

Siddhsavir Batra,

International Press Corps

Dear Delegates,

I warmly welcome you to the Press of the tenth edition of the Welham Boys’ School Model United Nations Conference. This year, as the Editor-in-Chief of the International Press Corps, I’m pleased to have an amazing team of people Gokul and Chirag as Senior Editors, Athrv Ahuja as the Creative Editor, Shashwat and Ayan as Rapporteurs. You need to understand the true purpose of the Press and the power of your words and voice. I am certain that you are aware journalism is perhaps the most potent and impactful tenet of the contemporary world. The establishment of public opinion as an authoritative critique and its aftermath have created a dimension that has changed the course of history as we know it. You hold a pivotal role in this conference, and to keep up with the spirit of extreme international journalism, you must be always alert in the conscious and subconscious state and keep your thoughts open to prospective and rational thinking. You will need to be able to deliver the discussions of the major and minor events on the floor which might be arguably controversial to the public, while being a journalist who showcases the traits of an impartial and unbiased reporter committed to serious journalism. You must understand the strength and might of the ink, which can change the perspectives and opinions of the masses within a matter of mere minutes. Therefore, it is extremely important to understand the media's inevitable role in conferences that can potentially affect people's lives, counting in billions. Despite the critical and challenging nature of journalism, I sincerely hope that all of you will do well.

However, if there is any sort of guidance needed, my team and I would be delighted to help you out without any sort of judgment. On behalf of the entire Executive board, I wish you all the best.

 

Regards,

Tanveer Singh Sains
