Historical Crisis Committee - HCC
Difficulty: Intermediate

About the Committee

The Historical Crisis Committee (HCC) is a simulation that speaks about the issues that have been addressed by the Security Council and other United Nations committees in the past. Parties are urged to dispute issues in a peaceful way and are urged to adjust to methods and terms of settlement. This committee is consistently in crisis throughout the conference, unlike many other committees. The experience that is to be expected in this committee is more unpredictable, volatile and urgent than most, however, it is also an utterly exciting experience.


I. Imperialism in Africa

II. Rwandan Genocide

About the Chairs

Jana Askar

co-chair     janamohamad75@gmail.com

Jana is a business student at AUD and is passionate in being involved with anything UN related. She has participated in many MUN conferences across the UAE, and is also a UNGC youth ambassador.

Edward Kondrat

chair     edward.xisp@gmail.com

Edward is a Russian student, majoring International Relations in the American University of Sharjah. 18 years of living in United Arab Emirates have showed Edward how important it is to be able to live in an international community, where people from all around the world, with different cultures, languages and religions are able to live together in harmony. Being an International Relations student, Edward is strongly interested in today`s political institutions and in seeking a dialog about different problems of our modern world not only between the professional politicians, but also between the new generation, who will soon be facing these issues by themselves. Edward is convinces that MUN is one of such platforms, where youth can exchange their personal experience, get a look from the perspectives of different countries and shape together their opinions on today`s major problems of our international community.
