Security Council - A

The Indo - China Conflict

Dear Delegates,
 
It is an absolute honour to welcome you to the Security Council at Welmun’20. We have Varad Venkat and Shivam Dodai as the Joint-Directors, and Arnav Goel as the Rapporteur, making up the Executive Board alongside me.


Considering the constantly deteriorating situation at the Indo-China border, the Security Council will deliberate upon and choose whichever
course it deems fit for the international community, at the same time, keeping in mind the responsibilities of the Council, the extent of this
conflict and its various implications around the world.


I sincerely hope that all the delegates are well versed with the agenda, and will play their part in making the committee as interesting as we are hoping to make it. I also urge all the delegates to try and gain a holistic understanding of their content and then bring more depth and analysis to the arguments they present in the committee. Instead of countless assertions, I suggest that everyone prioritizes the points he or she will talk about in speech, thus explaining those better in the short time available.


The purview of the agenda at hand goes beyond the imminent military and diplomatic crisis. The Executive Board encourages everyone to
explore the agenda and go beyond the information available in the Background Guide. We hope that the committee brings original ideas to
the table, and the debate stands at a level several notches higher, overall, at the end of the two days.  Hopefully your experience will be a memorable one, and you will take back loads of memories and interesting ideas from Welmun’20.
 
Best wishes,

The Indo - China Conflict

Dear delegates, 

 

I am delighted to have the privilege of being your chairperson for the sixth edition of WELMUN. We have Sumer Sodhi as the Rapperteour, Luv Juyal as the Joint-Director, and Hritvik Moody as the Director, making up the Executive Board alongside me.   

The Indo-China border exists along one of the most treacherous terrains in the world, and is perhaps an area with the most potential for sparking a Global conflict. India and China together make up about 35.5% of the world population. That translates to approximately every two out of five people in the world. They also possess large nuclear arsenals, follow opposing ideologies, and have extremely low public opinions of each other. Even a cursory study of the internal politics of these countries will result in the conclusion that the leaders of these countries on a collusion have nothing to gain by taking the path of the dove.

Thus, the purpose of this committee should not only be to secure a temporary reduction of tensions, but to also ensure certain safeguards that will ensure a lasting peace. Using international treaties, alliances and other deterrents, I am optimistic that the committee will be able to come up with a novel solution that actively deters acts of aggression instead of passively regretting them. 

I recommend that the delegates consider the actual modus operandi of the Security Council and follow a similar path of action, wherein the stance of the delegates may not necessarily be the most humane one, but one  that is certainly most advantageous to their country. Realpolitik should be the order of the day, not hollow preaching.

 

I am optimistic that the committee will bring original arguments to the table, and the debate stands several notches higher by the end of the committee. I hope your experience will be a memorable one and you will take back loads of memories and interesting ideas from WELMUN’20.

UNGA-1: Disarmament and International Security Committee - A

Asymmetric warfare and its implications on national sovereignity

Dear Delegates,
 

It is my utmost pleasure and honour to welcome you to the Disarmament and International Security Committee at WELMUN ‘20. This year, along with me, Devansh Mittal and Aditya Mehra will be the joint-directors of the committee, accompanied by Shubhankar Dhulia as the rapporteur.

 

On paper, the agenda we will be discussing is a rather vaguely worded and abstract one. However, the intention here is to expose the ludicrous nature of modern day negotiation and cooperation within the United Nations. And while it is ironic to criticise cooperation during a Model UN conference, the MUN has accorded the opportunity for us to make this ‘virtual’ community a true sum of its parts.


We expect the committee to be well researched and versed with country stances; I will however implore you to keep your own thoughts above all. Remember Delegates, you drive the committee and hence, above all the diplomacy and the role-playing that you do in the committee, your ideas and dedication will be paramount in DISEC. Whilst asymmetric warfare constantly pushes members into infringing each other’s sovereignty, the advent of fourth generation warfare has been a slap in the face of goal driven cooperation. Both these discussions threaten our current purview of cooperation and negotiations within the United Nations and continues to jeopardise trust amongst member nations. This is what we as a committee should aspire to change at WELMUN’20.

Delegates, I sincerely hope that DISEC is going to be a memorable experience for you, and you go back with a lot of learning and memories. My final piece of advice to you would be to be engaged, and not just well-researched delegates, because for any discussion to be successful, engagement and content have to go hand in hand.

Best Regards,

UNGA-1: Disarmament and International Security Committee - B

Asymmetric warfare and its implications on national sovereignity

Dear delegates,


I am delighted to welcome you to the Disarmament and International Security Committee at the 6th edition of Welmun. The problems that the world is facing today stand in stark contrast with any of the problems the world has faced before. Today, for the first time, solutions demand bilateral agreement and conversation. And it is up to us, as diplomats, to preserve this new social order.
I will be assisted in running the committee by Arya Raj Singh and Gauransh Goyal in the capacity of Joint Directors and Trayambak Pathak as the rapporteur. Our expectations from you as delegates of the DISEC are that you will come well-researched and prepared and will each
have something fruitful to add to the discussion. We expect that you will make content-heavy speeches and refrain from using unnecessarily bombastic language.

The agenda that we will be discussing is one that is particularly relevant in today’s era. As our social equations get redefined, we also need to look at the imbalance in geopolitical equations in the present social order. We implore you to look beyond the Background Guide in terms of research as the agenda demands a nuanced take.


Warm Regards,

Office on Drugs and Crime

Reconsidering the legal status of cannabis used for recreational purposes

 

Dear Delegates,
It is with the utmost pleasure that I welcome you all to the sixth edition of WELMUN. For those of you who do not know, the UNODC has been helping make the world safer from drugs, organized crime, corruption and terrorism, for more than two decades now. Serving as a repository of technical expertise in international drug control, we at this conference would be deliberating on the legal status of cannabis used for recreational purposes.


In a fractured world which abounds in problems and riveting controversies, experiencing a phase like never before, I expect the delegates to come up with simple yet effective solutions to deal with the problems at hand, as well as prevent the creation of further problems in the near future. I would also like to take this opportunity to introduce you to the Executive Board. We have Suryansh Dalmia and Aaditya Chandragupta as the Joint Directors, and Divyansh Makheeja as the Rapporteur.

An ending is always the beginning of a new chapter.
 

 

In anticipation of new beginnings,

Best of Luck!

Congo War Cabinet

HISTORICAL CRISIS COMMITTEE

Countering The Congo Crisis of 1960- 1965.

 

Congo was a colony which was subjected to diabolical horrors for King Leopold’s (of Belgium) amusement. Later, sucked dry of all its riches to finance the progress of Belgium. On 30th June 1960, this country gained its independence through the irreplaceable struggles of its leaders.


As we enter this new era with high aspirations, delegates it is your onus to protect this newfound liberty and democracy and lead Congo into an age of progress. However, remember that as you take the reins you are getting a country stricken with poverty, illiteracy and scarred by decades of colonial rule. The tumultuous times that follow are engrained with treachery, political deadlocks and Belgian control over our scarce resources. Your ability to coalesce and find solutions will be tested.


As we enter this era of crisis, this war cabinet shall decide the future of this ravaged nation. To help with that, we have Shrey Sharma as the director, along with Vanshaj Tandon and Parth Tiwari as the rapporteurs. 
 

Best of luck! See you in a month.

FUTURISTIC CRISIS COMMITTEE

 

The Future of Union of India

“In India you don’t cast your vote, you vote your caste”

In this 24th year of the 21st century, India is changing herself. Her waters are flowing into lands that would make it impossible for her recourse herself. As I write this, the Bhartiya Janata Party is executing a very specific plan of action. The party is materializing the long-held ideas of its ideological parent by strengthening the majority’s claim over the true ownership of the country and disenfranchising those who the party deems foreign.


The party’s Hindu hyper-nationalism is no longer in a veil, the party is now aggressively pushing for Hindu dominance. The future that it has imagined for the country is being called “apocalyptic” and a “death knell to the very idea of India” by national as well as international media. It is upon you now to guide the country to place you deem fit.


As for myself, I am a Grade 11 student pursuing Sciences and I would assisted by Rudraksh Mehta and Yuvraj Gambhir as Joint- Directors and Vishal Gupta as the Rapporteur. In the end as I look forward to see you this fall, you would be shouldering the burden of determining the future of your country; whether we descend into anarchy or despotism, whether we head into the Spring of 2011 or the Autumn of 1939.

Dear Delegates,


Human beings are distinct from animals in their capacity to reason and social nature. Our beliefs, collective as well as individual, shape our social existence. Human beliefs are complex and have sources in facts, rumours, opinions and occasionally, in critical analysis. Each passing day brings with itself a chain of events which are presented to the world in a blend of these aforementioned elements. It is this blend which shapes human nature and society. It carries immense power, as well as, places equally great responsibility on human shoulders. This is the moral onus of media institutions, in this post-modern age of informational glut and post-truth. We have to ensure that our social existence conforms to our capacity to reason.
                                                           
The international arena is fraught with constant bickering between various stakeholders and the issues have become more complex with each passing day. The media/press is being increasingly seen as partisan and aligned with national and other interest groups. The need for a nuanced, neutral, proactive and humanitarian media has now become more pronounced than ever before at the international level, and this is the burden that I, as the Chair, would like to place upon the shoulders of the delegates.


IPC gives a platform to every delegate the responsibilty to articulate and present the events of the conference in the best possible manner, in conformity with journalistic ethics. There will be a lot of running around, deadlines to comply with, research sprees etc. and as journalists, delegates will be expected to report accurately and present an unbiased critical analysis. I would urge every delegate to skillfully think and
behave like a journalist, keeping in mind the responsibility that this profession carries in real life. Try to focus not only on facts, but attempt to uncover the latent issues that surface within the committees between different stakeholders. Let us be articulate, accurate and active with the  job so that we perform our collective role as a committee with impeccable dedication and honour.

Best Regards,

Harshvikram Singh
