The Arab League

Due to the overwhelming number of registering schools, we have added an extra committee: the Arab League. The Arab League is an independent council of 22 states in the Middle East, including for example Morocco, Egypt, Iraq, Saudi Arabia and Somalia. Syria has been officially suspended from the council, but will attend the LEMUN simulation of the Arab League with right to speak but not to vote. The committee uses ad-hoc debate, which means delegates should prepare statements, to be discussed at the conference and debated into resolutions on the four topics the Arab League will focus on.

The Historical Committee

Our staff is working quite enthusiastically on setting up a Historical Committee. This year it has been 100 years since the start of World War I. The Historical Committee will deal with the disputes in Europe starting in 1901 until World War I. Participants in the historical committee will focus on the diplomatic processes during this period. Delegates will work two by two, representing one of seven countries. There will be more focus on lobbying and creating goodwill amongst countries than in a regular MUN committee.

We still have some positions available for this committee. The Historical Committee positions will be considered as extra positions, so this would be an opportunity to bring one or two students more than we normally allow.  We kindly invite MUN directors to send an email to info@lemun.org in case they would like to offer this position to one or two of their students.
