The Crisis Committee in general
The Crisis Committee has been one of LEMUN’s great successes over the last couple of years. Delegates, known as diplomats and working in pairs, will have to solve a series of crises during LEMUN, without knowing in detail what they will be confronted with. They will have to use their creative, research and negotiation skills to limit the effects of the crises that can range from riots to earthquakes and from war to epidemics. During the conference, a team of MUN veterans will form the ‘Crisis Committee Headquarters’ (CCHQ). The CCHQ does not only provide the input for the committee, but also acts as entities not present in committee so delegates can ask, for example, their government or an NGO for advice. As this committee is very demanding of its delegates, only students who have participated in at least two previous MUNs are able to become Crisis Committee delegate.
The CCHQ has written a special Crisis Committee Instruction Booklet to help delegates start preparing and explain the Rules of Procedure.
