裁军与国际安全委员会

Disarmament and International Security Committee

议题:跨国冲突中的军事干预 Military Intervention in Transnational Conflict
Director:Sunaina Danziger  会议指导介绍 Class year: 2019 Hometown: New York City, NY Favorite place: Central Park, NYC Most desired next destination: Berlin, Germany Favorite food: Either French or Italian food (or anything chocolate) Favorite MUN moment: Attending HMUN Boston three times as a delegate! Song that plays when I walk into committee: World Leader Pretend by R.E.M. Advice for new delegates: Whether you're a seasoned MUN veteran, or have never participated in MUN before, you are capable of making an impact on committee, even as large a committee as DISEC. Research well, think about creative solutions, and make sure your voice is heard by giving speeches and collaborating to write draft resolutions.

  议题详述
Topic Area: Military Intervention in Transnational Conflict
Throughout the majority of the twentieth century, foreign intervention was carried out by individual nation states. During the Cold War, the world was divided between American and Soviet spheres of influence and the non-aligned “Third-World”: military intervention centered primarily around each superpower attempting to buttress a potential ally and expand its sphere of influence. With the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, the United States became the sole superpower, and the international community entrusted with redefining the parameters for foreign military intervention. The international community’s failure to respond to the 1994 Rwandan Genocide, and a NATO-led intervention in the 1997 Bosnian Civil War, established the “Responsibility to Protect” (R2P) as a guideline for military intervention when a government has failed to protect its civilians. Yet this human rights-based approach to military intervention largely failed to situate itself as a paradigm for international intervention, as the 2000s were marked by unilateral intervention or, at times, a failure to intervene under circumstances that, according to R2P, necessitated intervention. The escalation of the Syrian civil war in the aftermath of the Arab Spring brought questions surrounding when and how to intervene to the forefront of the international community. What constitutes a just cause for intervention, and which actors—be they individual nation states, UN bodies, or other multilateral organizations—ought to carry out intervention? Syria, the rise of ISIS, and the European refugee crisis suggest the degree to which twenty-first century warfare is innately transnational, which demands the international community reconsider and restructure its approach to military intervention. Note: The Disarmament and International Security Committee is a single-topic committee.
  委员会欢迎信Dear Delegates, I am beyond excited to welcome you to HMUN China 2017 as your director for the first committee of the General Assembly, the Disarmament and International Security Committee (DISEC)! My name is Sunaina Danziger and I was born and bred in New York City. I am a sophomore concentrating in History with a secondary in Spanish literature. I participated in Model UN all throughout high school, and am so excited to (attempt to) transfer my amazing experience with MUN to you! Model UN, New York, and my own international identity have allowed me to see myself as part of a global whole, and I could hardly be more thrilled to expand my horizon to China. Outside of Model UN and the International Relations Council at Harvard, I write for the Harvard Political Review, and am a member of the club tennis team. In my spare time, I enjoy running along the Charles River, reading good novels, piano, and religiously following politics and sports. My history background certainly drove my interest in our topic area, “Military Intervention in Transnational Conflict.” Our topic speaks to an evolving international order, the viability of the nation state, and the role of international bodies in maintaining peace and security. The issues are challenging and contentious, but are certain to provide and intellectually stimulating and above-all fun experience for all delegates. I encourage you to research well and think carefully about your individual country policies. Please do not hesitate at all to reach out to me at any point before the conference with any questions and to introduce yourself to me—I would love to hear from you! Best, Sunaina Danziger Director, Disarmament and International Security Committee disec@hmunchina.org

特殊政治与去殖民化委员会

Special Political and Decolonization Committee

议题:支援战后及去殖民化国家的政治能力建设 Supporting Political Capacity in Post-Conflict and Decolonized States
Director:Aaisha Shah  会议指导介绍 Class year: 2017 Hometown: Lahore, Pakistan Favorite place: Lahore, Pakistan Most desired next destination: Sydney, Australia Favorite food: Pakistani food/Anything spicy Favorite MUN moment: Every single MUN moment! Advice for new delegates: Research about your country and topic area before conference, but also take HMUN China as an opportunity to learn more about these topics and global perspectives in general. Share your thoughts and opinions with your fellow delegates in committee, no matter how short or long your speech seems. Everyone at conference is here to learn, and I am very excited to hear your ideas come March! When in doubt, always write to me and I will be happy to assist you.   议题详述
Topic Area: Supporting Political Capacity in Post-Conflict and Decolonized States
Political capacity of a state constitutes its ability to develop and support institutions that not only administer the government machinery but also sustain the political order and collective decision-making process. Coupled with questions of self-determination and choice of government system, the challenge of developing political capacity is unique to every state. Ultimately, the mark of a high political capacity state is one whose political situation is stable enough to also nurture sustainable economic, legal, social and civic institutions. Post-conflict and decolonized states in particular face challenges to improving their political capacity. Given their often-precarious political, economic, and social circumstances they require assistance from the international community to stabilize conditions. This assistance can come from various independent and collective efforts. However, given the United Nations vast resources and experience in providing electoral and state capacity building assistance it is time for the Fourth Committee of the UN General Assembly to discuss how international framework for building political capacity can be established. Note: The Social, Cultural, and Humanitarian Committee is a single-topic committee.
  委员会欢迎信Dear Delegates, Aaisha is a fourth-year student at Harvard studying History and Economics with a focus in South Asian history. She hails from the beautiful city of Lahore and thus loves good food and cricket. After having a wonderful experience directing the Historical General Assembly at HMUN China 2015, she is ecstatic to return to Beijing this year. Aaisha was the Under-Secretary-General for the General Assembly at Harvard National Model United Nations 2017, HMUN’s sister conference for college students. She will be serving HNMUN 2017 in the capacity of Director-General. Apart from doing MUN, Aaisha annually organizes Harvard Pakistan Forum and was President of the Harvard College Pakistan Student Association. In her free time, Aaisha likes to visit museums and find interesting things to do around town. Sincerely, Aaisha Shah Director, Special Political and Decolonization Committee specpol@hmunchina.org

If you're confident about what you're proposing, speeches and caucusing are much less daunting.   议题详述
Topic Area: Wartime Social Psychology
As explosions rattle battlefields in far-off lands, it is easy to ignore the shockwaves rippling through home territories. After all, while the physical casualties of war may be many, the psychological injuries can be countless. During times of violent conflict, it is crucial that involved governments be mindful of the hearts and minds of their citizens. The psychological effects of war are multifaceted and manifold. This topic will cover phenomena from panic to post-traumatic stress disorder, examining how civilians can be consoled in wartime. It will be important to consider the prevention, curing, and long-term recovery of such conditions in order to lessen the negative impacts of war on whole societies. Over time, stabilizing the national psyche may allow for greater international peace. On the other hand, the WHO will also need to consider how to prevent wartime social psychology from being exploited. Corrupt or authoritarian governments may take advantage of the “rally around the flag” effect, using extreme wartime patriotism for self-interested political causes. Additionally, non-state actors may radicalize discontent civilians, threatening exacerbated conflict. The issue of Wartime Social Psychology is one that has yet to be thoroughly explored by the international community; yet, it has major consequences for global order. Note: The World Trade Organization is a single-topic committee.
  委员会欢迎信Dear Delegates, Welcome to HMUN China 2017! My name is Sarah Anderson, and I am extremely excited to serve as Director for the World Health Organization (WHO). This committee will be an exciting exploration in interdisciplinary problem-solving and international diplomacy. I am very much looking forward to returning to HMUN China, after directing DISEC last year. I’ve also directed committees at HMUN and HNMUN in Boston, compete on the American collegiate MUN circuit, and currently serve as the Under-Secretary-General for the General Assembly for Harvard National Model United Nations 2017. Before college, I participated on the Asian international circuit as both a delegate and a chair for five years. Outside engaging with Model United Nations, I participate in a high school IR education service program, strategize for the International Relations Council, and dance in the Harvard-Radcliffe Modern Dance Company. I will be concentrating in Government, with a possible secondary concentration in Neurobiology; I’m also a pre-medical student. I’m originally from Singapore, which has warm weather and mouthwatering food that I frequently long for. This year, the WHO will be debating “Wartime Social Psychology.” This topic combines neuroscience, psychology, international relations, and sociology. Although challenging, the interdisciplinary nature of the topic is a unique opportunity for delegates to explore their own interests within the realm of Model UN. The committee will certainly present an intellectually rewarding and fun-filled experience for delegates of all backgrounds. I look forward to meeting all of you at the conference! Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions you may have. Warm Regards, Sarah Anderson Director, World Health Organization who@hmunchina.org

Topic Area: Beijing Round of WTO Trade Negotiations, 2017
The Doha round of WTO trade negotiations in 2001 was the WTO’s attempt to lock in trade liberalization and offer potentially enormous welfare gains for the world’s poorest people. However, the project failed. Now, Doha has been scrapped and you must start again. You will have to address the controversial topics that delegates at Doha failed to deal with. Agricultural subsidies block the developing world from large markets; can a compromise be reached on these export subsidies? Can the Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS) be made more flexible to allow the developing world better access to medicines, but also prevent abuse in courts? How should the WTO move towards expanding clean energy provision without subsidies being used as an economic weapon? However, the world has changed since 2001 and new issues must be addressed. Should the WTO offer a stance on reform or abolition of investor-state dispute settlements, which many argue violate sovereignty? To prevent currency manipulation damaging international trade, should regulation of policies affecting exchange rates be included in future agreements? As delegates, you will have to consider these questions, as well as how could they be implemented and enforced. Note: The World Trade Organization is a single-topic committee.
  委员会欢迎信Dear Delegates, Welcome to HMUN China 2017! My name’s Neil Reilly, and I’m directing the ‘Beijing Round of WTO Trade Negotiations, 2017’. I’m originally from Northern Ireland, and I can’t wait to meet you all in Beijing, and experience all China has to offer! Growing up in Northern Ireland has informed a lot of what I’m passionate about. Seeing violent political and religious division first hand really emphasised the importance of diplomacy, negotiation, and compromise, even though it may be difficult. These are the reasons that I’m studying History and Government at Harvard, and they’re also the reasons I’m directing the World Trade Organization at HMUN China 2017. What makes this committee so interesting is that all resolutions must be passed unanimously, so compromise and negotiation are as important in committee as being a persuasive speaker and thoughtful policy-writer. This structure will make for an interesting, and challenging committee, not least because you will be dealing with some of the most contentious issues in international trade and economics, surrounding sovereignty, currency manipulation, agricultural subsidies, and more. These are issues that the WTO itself has failed to deal with, and there’s ample opportunity for you as delegates to show real leadership in a field that needs it. I really want this conference to be an opportunity for new and experienced delegates to push themselves with a new set of skills, and I hope you’re as excited as I am! Please do not hesitate to reach out to me at any point with any questions or concerns you may have! Best, Neil Reilly Director, World Trade Organization wto@hmunchina.org

议题:企业社会责任 Corporate Social Responsibility
Director:Colin Mark  会议指导介绍 Class year: 2017 Hometown: New York City, USA Favorite place: New York, NY Most desired next destination: HMUN China Favorite food: Cheesecake Favorite MUN moment: At HMUN India 2015, I was asked to pretend to be the President of the prominent non-governmental organization Doctors Without Borders. One of the delegates did not realize I was only acting, and he sincerely believed that I was the leader of this organization. For the next several days, he continued to ask me questions about Doctors Without Borders until I understood his misconception and assured him I was just a committee Director, not President of Doctors Without Borders. Song that plays when I walk into committee: "Seeya" - Deadmau5 Advice for new delegates: Team up with likeminded delegates! The most common mistake I see new delegates make is believing that they are supposed to debate against all of the other delegates in the room. You will have so much more fun in committee–and gain so much more–if you work with a group of other delegates (a "bloc" in MUN terms) on a working paper, and later on a draft resolution, and endeavor as a team to get your draft resolution passed by the committee.   议题详述
Topic Area: Corporate Social Responsibility
If Walmart, the world’s largest company by revenue, were a country, it would rank 25th in the world in terms of GDP—higher than every African country except for Nigeria, which would rank 24th. The company employs more people than there are citizens of Botswana. In a world in which many multi-national corporations have more wealth, more power, and more influence than certain United Nations Member States, it no longer makes sense to view the world as simply a collection of sovereign states. The global political economy today is a patchwork of states, international organizations, multinational corporations, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and social movements. The problems it faces cannot be addressed by the governments of states alone. Enter the UN Global Compact, an initiative bringing together thousands of non-state actors, including corporations, NGOs, academic institutions, and business associations. The UNGC works with this diverse group of actors to push businesses to become more ethical, sustainable, and socially impactful. This year at HMUN China, delegates in the UN Global Compact committee will have the opportunity to represent not only the Member States of the UN’s Economic and Social Council, but also prominent corporations, NGOs, and other actors with a stake in the promotion of responsible business. Delegates will be tasked with building on the UNGC’s Ten Principles of corporate responsibility to develop a comprehensive framework for a socially responsible global political economy. This framework will address issues including but not limited to the ethical treatment of laborers, the institutionalization of corruption, and the political power of large corporations. Note: The United Nations Global Compact is a single-topic committee.
  委员会欢迎信Dear Delegates, As your Director for the United Nations Global Compact, it is my honor to welcome you to the General Assembly at the 7th session of Harvard Model United Nations China. This committee is unique among General Assembly committees in that it gives delegates the opportunity to represent not only United Nations Member States, but a broad range of non-state actors including multi-national corporations, non-governmental organizations, and academic institutions. I am confident that the diversity of voices in this committee will make it a uniquely enriching educational experience, and I look forward to sharing it with you in March. Please know that I am excited to serve as a resource for delegates. Whether this is your first time or your last time as a delegate, feel free to reach out to me with any and all questions. I cannot wait to meet you! Best, Colin Mark Director,United Nations Globl Compact ungc@hmunchina.org

联合国经济与社会理事会是联合国六大主要机构之一,负责协调与解决关于人类发展的经济与社会问题,包括经济发展、社会公平、文化教育、医疗健康等。HMUN China 2017设置的2个经社理事会委员会属于中等规模,使代表们既能开展激烈而广泛的讨论,又能有足够的参与感而深入讨论问题。在以下会场中,代表们不仅能够理解全球普遍经济与社会问题的解决方案,还会深刻认识到地区冲突的复杂性。

HMUN attracts the brightest people of your generation and is a fantastic opportunity for you to have the most interesting conversations you'll ever have in your life. Paying attention in committee and getting to know other delegates will help you to improve your skills as a delegate through learning by example. Most importantly, have fun!   议题详述
Topic Area: Crimes Against Humanity, Darfur
The main conflict that faces the United Nations Human Rights Council is the continued instability and crimes against humanity in Darfur. The government of Sudan and Darfur-based rebel groups signed the Darfur Peace Agreement in 2011. However, the peace agreement has unraveled as fighting between the Janjaweed militias and rebel groups has continued to escalate. Disputes over land and tribal differences have incited violence in the forms of genocide and attacks on villages, and thousands of people have been displaced by the fighting. Responsible for the Sudanese government's sponsorship of rebel militias called the Janjaweed that are carrying out these violent acts, Sudan's President Omar al-Bashir already faces criminal charges for genocide, crimes against humanity, and war as well as an arrest warrant from the International Criminal Court. However, al-Bashir has still not been arrested and put on trial. Furthermore, Darfur faces the potential for civil war in South Sudan to completely spill over into Sudan, transforming the humanitarian crisis already occurring in the region into a full-blown war between two neighbor countries with an extremely bitter history. The Human Rights Council must address the effectiveness of the peace-keeping mission already operated by the United Nations and the Africa Union in the region and decide whether to pursue prosecution for those responsible for violating the human rights of civilians living in Darfur. How can the members of the Human Rights Council unite in order to take effective action that will stop the atrocious violations of human rights occurring in Darfur due to the violence? After stopping the violence, what can the United Nations do to fully establish long-lasting peace and political security in the region? Note: The United Nations Human Rights Council is a single-topic committee.
  委员会欢迎信Dear Delegates, My name is Charlene Hong, and I am a senior at Harvard College, studying Social Studies and writing a thesis on the political activism of Korean university students. Originally from Nashville, Tennessee, in the United States, I live for sweet tea and Southern cooking, but the only country music I bump is Taylor Swift. I am deeply involved with the Harvard International Relations Council, staffing Harvard’s Model UN conferences in Boston, China, and Latin America, and competing at other college Model UN conferences as a former head delegate for the traveling team, ICMUN. Last year, I served on Secretariat for HMUN China. This year marks my 3rd HMUN China, and my fourth time back to China! Outside of Model UN, you can find me working for Circle of Women, an entirely student-run non-profit that aims to expand educational opportunities for girls in developing countries, reading fashion blogs, and exploring cute cafes. I am beyond excited to welcome delegates to the United Nations Human Rights Council, and to help create a dynamic, fun, and educational committee experience. This committee offers delegates the chance to engage with a myriad of challenges in relation to preserving human rights, from evaluating the effectiveness of long-running UN peacekeeping missions and investigating peace and stability in a region that has long suffered from ethnic division and civil war. Please don't hesitate to reach out to me with any questions about the committee. I can’t wait to meet you and to welcome you all to HMUN China 2017! Sincerely, Charlene Hong Director, United Nations Human Rights Council unhrc@hmunchina.org

Favorite MUN moment: I’ve had so many incredible MUN moments that it’s difficult to pick one!

Song that plays when I walk into committee: Kashmir - Led Zeppelin Advice for new delegates: Beginning a conference can be frightening, but the hardest part is finding the confidence to start. Once you give your first speech or two, pitch an idea during unmoderated caucus, or even just send your first note, everything becomes much, much easier. Everyone can become an incredible delegate once they gain a little bit of momentum, and if you find that that is out of your comfort zone, don’t be afraid to reach out to any staff member. We are all here to help you in any way possible!   议题详述
Topic Area: Tuberculosis
Despite being both curable and preventable, Tuberculosis claimed 1.5 million lives in 2014. Killing a full half of those infected and left untreated, TB must be a priority in disease eradication efforts, especially considering the threat of drug resistant TB and HIV co-infection. With 95% of cases occurring in developing nations with limited resources, much of the debate concerns distributing resources efficiently without infringing upon the sovereignty of affected nations. Due to economic, social, and military challenges in these nations, the detection of TB and delivery of aid is not nearly as efficient as it could be. In addition, even though the average cost of treatment for a patient with drug-susceptible TB is only $100-$500, it is estimated that the cost for a full, global TB response is $8 billion per year. Delegates will be faced with a wide variety of challenges, such as developing more efficient ways to diagnose patients, finding funding for distribution of treatment, and preventing the spread of drug resistant TB. Note: The World Bank is a single-topic committee.
  委员会欢迎信Dear Delegates, My name is Anthony Bogachev and I will be your director for the World Bank. I am immensely honored to have the opportunity to work with you, and I know that we will have an amazing and productive time together! I am currently an undergraduate student at Harvard College and plan on studying Bioengineering. I grew up in Maple Grove, Minnesota, which seemed very isolated from international issues until I joined Debate, Speech, and Model United Nations in high school and realized how interconnected events around the globe can be. Around the same time, I became interested in how learning about the world around us through scientific inquiry could help humans lead healthier, better lives. Global health lies at the intersection of these two seemingly different passions, which means that the topics will be both challenging and interesting. Although the issues we discuss will not be easy to approach, we also have the potential to make a huge impact. I am incredibly excited to meet everybody and finally begin committee together! Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. Best Regards, Anthony Bogachev Director, World Bank wb@hmunchina.org

Topic Area: Private Military Contractors
Private military contractors, or PMCs — private companies who provide combat, security or other warfare-related services — are one of the most controversial parts of modern warfare. Many perceive PMCs as highly unethical, because they fight only for money. These concerns have only intensified because of the role of PMCs in the Iraq war, where PMCs were implicated in the Abu Ghraib prison abuse scandal and in several incidents of innocent civilian death. Furthermore, there are effectiveness concerns. PMCs require no formal training process or certification. Furthermore, PMCs may be less loyal and more likely to leak classified information. But despite all of these problems, North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) member nations have been increasingly using PMCs. In the European and North American democracies that comprise NATO, it is often politically easier to use PMCs, because their deployment does not require parliamentary approval. Furthermore, PMC use can be cheaper than maintaining a large standing army. This NATO committee will consider this complex mix of opportunities and challenges that comes with PMC use. Primarily, it will consider three questions: 1) How can NATO countries ethically use PMCs, if at all?; 2) How can NATO countries ensure that PMCs are well-trained and regulated?; 3) In joint NATO operations, is there a place for PMCs? If so, how? Delegates will be pressed to find an innovative solution that balances all the diverse factors at play. Note: The North Atlantic Treaty Organization is a single-topic committee.

These people commonly experience higher levels of poverty than their urban counterparts, which subsequently affect their prospects for economic development, access to education, and ability to meet their basic food needs. Many believe that the lack of investment in rural communities in certain areas, such as in health care, education, and infrastructure, lead to these vast inequalities. Some suggest that developing and industrializing these rural communities may narrow the gap between rural and urban areas, giving families a chance to overcome poverty. Yet others believe that such industrialization would have too large of an environmental cost, as it would contribute to pollution and prevent sustainable land management. Further, indigenous communities are disproportionately affected by rural poverty: the Canadian Research Institute for the Advancement of Women reports that half of indigenous peoples living on reserves in the country are poor, three out of four indigenous peoples in Guatemala are affected by poverty, and indigenous communities in Bolivia, Peru, and Ecuador are the poorest in the region. How will you find a solution to these rural inequalities? How will you balance the need to alleviate poverty while keeping cultural identities alive and preventing environmental harm? These are questions you’ll have the opportunity to explore further in committee. Note: The Organization of American States is a single-topic committee.
  委员会欢迎信Dear Delegates, Hello, and welcome to the Organization of American States! My name is Allison Toledo, and I am thrilled to be your Director. Over the course of the HMUN China weekend, you will be acting as member states of the OAS. You will be discussing rural inequalities, negotiating solutions to these critical issues, and addressing any crises that may arise as a result of your handling of the situations. Considering Latin America’s rising status on the world stage, it is an incredibly significant time for the OAS to address internal issues in the Americas in order to continue their states’ upward trajectories in the global standings. For a little bit about myself, I am a sophomore at Harvard College, most likely concentrating in either Government or Social Studies. My interest in the Organization of American States stems partly from my Ecuadorian heritage as well as my American identity and upbringing. In high school in New Jersey, I was the Head Delegate for two years of my school’s small Model UN team, where I developed a passion for discussing international affairs that has carried over into my college career. At Harvard, I am a Deputy Director for our competitive Model UN team, a Director at both Harvard National Model United Nations and Harvard Model United Nations, a tutor for the Harvard Program for International Education, and a Director at HMUN China. Aside from Model UN, I also advise freshmen and am a member of an a cappella group on campus, the Harvard Lowkeys. It is a pivotal time for the Americas: You will decide how to combat the inequality between rural and urban communities while keeping cultural, economic, and environmental considerations in mind. Model UN is an incredible forum for debate on pressing international issues such as these, and I have faith that this committee will take on these challenges with confidence and innovation. I look forward to meeting each of you and exploring these critical issues together! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me via email. Sincerely, Allison Toledo Director, Organization of American States oas@hmunchina.org

Topic Area: Cyber-terrorism
In January, 2010, workers at the Natanz nuclear facility in Iran noticed that dozens of the plant’s uranium-enriching centrifuges were inexplicably failing. Closer inspection revealed that the computers at Natanz had been infected by STUXNET, a computer worm that ultimately damaged almost 1,000 Iranian centrifuges. Later reports by The New York Times and Edward Snowden revealed that the Israeli and U.S. governments had created STUXNET in order to stymie Iran’s nuclear program, but soon lost control of the virus. STUXNET spread to Windows PCs across the web, infecting the networks of power plants, traffic control systems, and factories around the world. To this day, STUXNET remains in the wild, where anyone can download the code and repurpose the virus. The STUXNET incident demonstrates that the fuzzy line between warfare and terrorism in the real world extends to cyberspace. As more and more of our communication, commerce, and government activities take place on the internet, the threat of cyberterrorism becomes increasingly serious. In the early twenty-first century, the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation’s (SCO) Regional Anti-Terrorism Structure (RATS) produced several important resolutions relating to countering the threat of cyber attacks. In 2009, RATS defined an “information war” as an effort by a state to undermine another’s “political, economic, and social systems” and denounced such an attempt as an international security threat. Despite these efforts, the internet remains a lawless frontier that poses many unanswered questions of governance: Whose responsibility is it to ensure that our digital networks are safe from hackers? How should the international community go about investigating and prosecuting cases of cyberterrorism that transcend geographical borders? Complicating matters, a number of key SCO players, like Russia and China, have themselves been accused of engaging in hacking and cyber-espionage. Thus, attempts to achieve international cooperation for the sake of cyber defense may run aground of individual national interests. In creating policy to address cyberterrorism, delegates must confront the tension between self-interest and unity inherent in the Shanghai Cooperation Organization. Note: The Futuristic Shanghai Cooperation Organization is a single-topic committee.
  委员会欢迎信Dear Delegates, As Director of the Futuristic Shanghai Cooperation Organization, 2025, it is my pleasure to welcome you to HMUN China 2017. I am thrilled to be at the helm of such a unique and cutting-edge committee. Regardless of your level of experience with Model UN, I am confident that you will find the FSCO’s mix of technology, policy, and crisis to be both challenging and rewarding. I am a junior at Harvard, where I study the interdisciplinary intersection between computers, language, and cognition as part of the Mind, Brain, and Behavior program. Besides Model UN, I’m involved with the Harvard Society for Mind, Brain, and Behavior. In my free time, I love skiing, playing music, and rowing on the Charles River. I joined the Harvard International Relations Council in my freshman year, and thoroughly enjoy the opportunity Model UN affords me to apply my interests in science and technology to the wider world. While the FSCO is a futuristic committee, the topics you will be addressing are of mounting international significance today. With society becoming more and more reliant on the internet, cyberterrorism poses an increasing threat to governance and stability in the twenty-first century. It is my hope that this committee will challenge you to consider how technology and economic development will impact the state of international affairs in the near future. If you have any questions or concerns about the format or substance of the Futuristic Shanghai Cooperation Organization, please do not hesitate to reach out to me at fsco@hmunchina.org. I look forward to meeting you all in March. Sincerely, Gabriel Grand Director, Futuristic Shanghai Cooperation Organization, 2025 fsco@hmunchina.org

Topic Area: Gulf War, 1991
In the early days of 1991, the Gulf WGulf Warar drew the attention, resources, and troops of much of the international community. The war began in August 1990, when Saddam Hussein ordered the Iraqi military to invade Kuwait, claiming that Kuwait had violated the agreements of former OPEC arrangements, was taking oil from the Iraqi-owned Rumaila field, and should forgive Iraq’s debts. But the backstory for Iraq’s invasion extends long before 1990 and has its roots in layers of complicated factors. Much of the international community had its own vested interests in Iraq, Kuwait, and bordering countries, leading, in part, to the willingness to form an international coalition against Saddam’s army. In 1990, the United Nations Security Council also played a role in the lead-up to war with the passage of Resolution 678 on 29 November, giving Saddam Hussein the deadline of 15 January, 1991 to withdraw from Kuwait and authorizing the use of necessary force in the event of his refusal. This is the backdrop for this meeting of the Security Council on 16 January, 1991. The Security Council and the fifteen countries sitting on the body in 1991 must decide, both as a body and individually, whether they will continue to support the international coalition fighting Iraq. The Security Council and its members must also decide what non-war measures they want to take, including the imposition of economic sanctions on Iraq and other countries supporting Iraq, and how they want to deal with the repercussions of a war.Gulf War Note: The Historical Security Council is a single-topic committee.
委员会欢迎信Dear Delegates, Hello, and welcome to Historical Security Council, 1991! I am so excited to be directing Historical Security Council with a focus on the Gulf War of 1991. The Gulf War (also called the First Gulf War and the Second Gulf War—an indication of the complicated place the war has in history) lasted only for a few months in 1990 and 1991 but had its roots in decades of events in the Middle East and lasting consequences that continue to be felt today. This committee will examine, from the perspective of the United Nations Security Council—an important player in the war—not only the military dimension of the war but also the policy reasons for various countries’ decisions, the economic considerations and effects of the war, and ultimately the deeply personal consequences of the international community’s action on people across the region. As members of the Security Council, you will also have the opportunity to examine the underlying tensions of the international coalition that fought against Saddam Hussein’s Iraq and to decide for yourselves what exactly the “international community” is or means. A little about me, from Brooklyn, New York City, I am a junior at Harvard College concentrating in History and Literature with a focus in America. Outside of school, I teach dance to Cambridge middle-school students through a Harvard organization named CityStep and am involved in various international relations programs on campus. I am a member of Harvard’s traveling MUN team, serve as Under-Secretary General for the Specialized Agencies for HNMUN, and will be crisis-directing a committee at HMUN 2017 in Boston. In my ever-shrinking free time, I like to run, explore New York City, and watch really terrible movies. I look forward to meeting all of you in March, and encourage you to reach out if you have any questions or if you just want to introduce yourself!

Topic Area: Crisis in Ukraine
The members of the Captains of American Industry committee are the business leaders, entrepreneurs, and inventors that controlled the most important and powerful corporations in the United States in 1887. During that era, known as the “Gilded Age,” there were very few restrictions on how businesses could behave or how large they could grow. The central government of the U.S. had little influence over corporations, as many of the laws that currently govern business and the economy had not yet been passed. In this context, a small number of individuals rose to positions of enormous economic influence who, together, controlled large portions of the steel, oil, transportation, publishing, and manufacturing industries. But starting in the 1880s, the U.S. government, labor unions, and populist political parties began to challenge the power of these captains of industry. In this committee, delegates will individually and collectively develop strategies to maintain their dominance of the American economy; in doing so, they will explore the relationship between economic and political influence, and learn about the difficulties that governments face when they attempt to regulate the actions of powerful business leaders or the behavior and structure of large corporations. Note: Captains of American Industry, 1887 is a single-topic committee. This is an application-only, continual crisis committee.
  委员会欢迎信Dear Delegates, Welcome to HMUN China 2017, and to the world of 19th-century American business! My name is Jonah Saltzman, and I am thrilled to be serving as your director for the Captains of American Industry committee, set in 1887. Over the four days of our conference, delegates in this committee will lead the most powerful corporations in the most important industries as they grapple with government interference, union mobilization, and the rise of populist politics in America during the late 1880s. I am a fourth-year student at Harvard University, where I study Government, with an emphasis on international relations. I have been involved in Model UN since my first year at Harvard, and have directed several committees for high school and college students in New York, Boston, and Beijing. This is my third time directing at HMUN China; in 2015, I directed the European Union, and in 2017 I directed the League of Arab States. Although I have previously directed Specialized Agency committees in Boston, I am excited to direct my first crisis committee in China. Captains of Industry delegates should expect a faster-paced committee than they may have previously experienced. Instead of writing and voting on resolutions that are produced over the course of the weekend, delegates will be presented with a series of situations, or “crises,” and develop strategies to address those crises based on their interests and the resources at their disposal, both individually and in groups. Delegates’ objective is not to develop a uniform policy for the committee as a whole, but to determine how best to solve the challenges with which they are presented and to cooperate with delegates who may have interests contrary to their own. I am very excited to direct the Captains of American Industry, and look forward to meeting each of you in March and seeing how you approach the issues we will explore. If you have any questions about the committee, especially about how it will be different from ECOSOC and General Assembly committees, please contact me at any time at cai@hmunchina.org. See you in Beijing! Sincerely, Jonah Saltzman Director, Captains of American Industry cai@hmunchina.org

The Constituent Assembly of Myanmar will discuss the issue of creating a federal system in Myanmar
When Myanmar gained independence in 1948, ethnic nationalities demanded a federal union be enshrined in the new constitution in accordance with the promises of General Aung San and the Panglong Agreement. However, a genuine federal state was never achieved, even under the first civilian government – instead, they maintained the extractive institutions of their former oppressors. Ethnic nationalities were dissatisfied, to say the least. The Karen were the first ethnic group that revolted, and at least 20 other ethnic armed organizations launched separate insurgencies. However, the military efficiently suppressed these secessionist movements with incredible violence. After more than 50 year of military oppression, Myanmar held its first free election in March of 2017. Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, daughter of General Aung San, and her party, the National League for Democracy, won by a landslide and now controls more than 60% of the parliament. As Myanmar goes through its democratic transition, the nation must reconcile with numerous ethnic groups it has oppressed for decades. In addition, it must uphold the original agreement of establishing a federal constitution that equally protects all ethnic groups under the law. The Constituent Assembly of Myanmar will draft a federal constitution, concurrent with the peace negotiations for the Nationwide Ceasefire Agreement that aim to bring peace among all ethnic armed groups. This constitution will provide a political solution that can give ethnic nationalities equal rights. We will discuss issues of self-determined land rights, division of central and state authority, equal distribution of resource and revenue, and equal representation in the Hluttaw. The Assembly will also have to handle foreign influences that could potentially shape the future economy of Myanmar. If the Constituent Assembly does not work efficiently, and fastidiously, the entire Nationwide Ceasefire Agreement may come crumbling down, and with it Myanmar’s dreams for democracy. Note: This is an application-only, continual crisis committee.
  委员会欢迎信Dear Delegates, My name is Tout Tun Lin and it is my distinct pleasure to welcome you to the Constituent Assembly of Myanmar. I am a sophomore at the College potentially concentrating in Social Studies or Anthropology. On campus, I am mostly involved in programs under the International Relations Councils; I am staffing Harvard National Model United Nations, our MUN conference for college students, as well as HMUN, our sister conference in Boston. I am so excited to meet you guys and to witness how you will shape the future of a federalist Myanmar. To give a brief background about my interests in Myanmar politics, I was born and raised in Myanmar and only recently moved to the States to attend college. When my parents were my age, a military coup d’état occurred, and the newly decolonized nation, once thought of as the “jewel of Asia”, isolated itself from the rest of the world. Until recently, discussing Myanmar politics in Myanmar could land you in jail for more than 10 years Naturally, this made me more curious about the oppressive political culture that exists in Myanmar. The Constituent Assembly will take place in present time (and, as luck would have it, when the Hluttaw convenes); it will be most rewarding to compare and contrast the similarities and differences of the directives passed by our committee and the directives passed by the Myanmar Parliament. As members of the Constituent Assembly, we will draft a federal constitution to unify the seven states and seven divisions under Myanmar. We will discuss ethnic reconciliation and equal representation of minorities in Hluttaw, negotiate resource and revenue sharing, land rights, and division of power among states. We will also create autonomous regions and demilitarize armed rebel groups. As we debate and write directives, our crisis directors will be hard at work creating scenarios based on the consequences of your proposed mandates. You will have to respond to the crises in a timely fashion or risk destroying the fragile peace between the central government and the armed ethnic groups. This committee will be extremely fast-paced, challenging, and thoroughly enjoyable. At the end of our conference, I hope you will have learned the intricacies of ethnic politics, the reality of negotiations, and the structure of the political scene in South East Asia. I cannot wait to meet you guys in the spring; we are going to have an amazing time together at conference. Sincerely, Tout Tun Lin Director, Constituent Assembly of Myanmar cam@hmunchina.org

Topic A: Greece's Economic Recession
At the heels of the global recession, Greece fell into an economic crisis of unprecedented proportions, from which it has yet to recover fully. As Greece entered the Euro, it was allowed to acquire an enormous amount of debt at relatively low interest rates, allowing shortsighted governments to pursue unsustainable government policies and projects. The true nature of Greece’s abysmal fiscal situation was not revealed until after the 2009 recession, when it became evident that Greek government officials had deliberately concealed the state of their financial affairs. Once it became abundantly clear that the Greeks had mismanaged their finances, the European Union had to step in to help Greece pay back its debts and salvage the Euro. A series of bailouts spearheaded by Germany ensured that Greece would repay its debts, but not without a cost. Greece was forced to get its finances in order via draconian austerity measures, which angered a populace that had become reliant on easy money and profligate government expenditure. Riding on the wave of popular discontent, several extremist parties on the right and left (Golden Dawn, Syriza) grew in size and came to the fore of Greek politics. The current Prime Minister, Alexis Tsipras of Syriza, ran on a platform of bringing austerity to an end, but was unable to deliver once elected, and was forced to negotiate with Germany. Weak economic recovery continues to stir popular discontent.
Topic B: Refugees
As Greece has struggled to get its economic act together, refugees have piled on its shores in record amounts with the intention of slipping through its porous borders and entering the European Union. As Greece struggles to cope with the influx, it has earned the ire of its northern neighbors, who have closed their borders in response, putting the Schengen area enshrined by the principle of free movement at risk. While the economic crisis is serious, the refugee crisis has far deeper ethical ramifications as Greeks and Europeans alike are being forced to ask themselves what it truly means to be a citizen of the European Union. In proposing and enacting solutions to the refugee crisis, delegates will be forced to strike a delicate balance between preserving the Greek national identity without losing their humanity.
  委员会欢迎信Dear Delegates, My name is Kyle Sargent, and I’m very excited to welcome you to the Greek Ministerial Council. As a rising sophomore at Harvard, I’m currently studying Mathematics and Computer Science. Outside of the classroom, I am highly involved in the International Relations Council, an extracurricular umbrella organization that encompasses Harvard’s traveling Model UN team, of which I am also a member. At HMUN China 2017, you’ll be a part of the Contemporary Greek Ministerial Council, a group of Greece’s most powerful bureaucrats responsible for overseeing its most influential ministries. Currently, Greece is plagued by economic troubles and a massive influx of refugees. The country will look to you for answers. I’ll begin by explaining how this committee came about. When I arrived at Harvard in the fall of 2015, I originally intended to study economics. In high school I was very passionate about the field, and wrote several papers about fiscal and monetary policy for state- and national-level competitions. Many of these papers concerned central banking and the Eurozone, with emphasis on the role of particular countries like Germany or Ireland. As I dug deeper into the budgets and balance sheets of faltering Western democracies and their central banks, I realized the stories told by the numbers therein were incomplete. In fact, as I came to realize, the economic plight of a country like Greece has deeply political elements. The European Union has a vested interest in Greece’s fiscal health, and this force often finds itself in opposition to popular sentiment in Greece against austerity and contractionary fiscal policy. My belief is that Model UN lends itself well to this issue, because any viable solution to it will require both technical expertise and political savvy. The Greek refugee crisis is another ongoing issue that will require your attention at conference. Unlike the protracted economic downturn, the refugee crisis has a much more immediate and emotionally visceral character. But the problems related to refugees that you’ll face in this committee, like those international leaders face every day, will not have clear-cut, morally unambiguous solutions. Often, proposals to house and care for refugees will earn the ire of your constituents. Integrating them into society and finding them employment could prove expensive or politically unpopular. Accepting too few refugees may anger your overburdened European allies, and accepting too many may allow them to leak through your borders westward. Arriving at acceptable solutions to this issue will require a delicately tuned moral compass and much allowance for practical considerations. I am very much looking forward to seeing how you tackle these issues, as they are by no means unique to Greece. If you have any questions please contact me via my committee email and I will address them to the best of my ability. Best, Kyle Sargent Director, Greek Ministerial Council gmc@hmunchina.org

Remember to include yourself with the discussions happening in the committee and be confident!   议题详述 It is no surprise that HIV/AIDS rate has grown exponentially over the last decade in Sub Saharan Africa. A continent plagued with the lack of cheap, effective medicine, contraception, or effective medical care, Africa desperately needs help soon. NGOs can help by strategically coordinating resources, information and political capital to truly make a difference. This topic is about how NGOs manage the following issues in Sub Saharan Africa with respect to HIV/AIDS: 1) Adjusting in all fashions to a developing world Many NGOs are headed up by western individuals which proves to be a barrier while working with members in a developing world. It is difficult for the recipients of aid to connect with or even understand members who are not part of their social communities. How will NGOs restructure to provide the most impact for their communities? 2) Improving Allocation of Funding NGOs have the resources to put in place structures that can really help the AIDS problem in the region. But how do they strategically coordinate so as to build a sustainable system that can manage even after they leave. How do NGOs work on an international scale to allocate funding from wealthy donors to African communities in an impactful way? NGO delegates will be required to work in other committees and so need to decide what is the most effective way to split their budget. 3) Balancing Efficiency, management and strategic responsibility NGOs are required to work with other NGOs in almost every project they undertake. What governs the NGOs and how do they ensure they maintain professionalism, quality and good collaboration? In addition to this, how do NGOs strictly regulate themselves in areas of spreading medicine, education and information? These are all issues that NGOs need to discuss together. The above issues look at the HIV/AIDS problem in a different perspective and focus solely on how NGOs can create a collaborative effort to create the most strategic impact. While working on this topic, NGO delegates will be required to assist other committees and lend their experience and expertise. Note: This is an application-only committee.  委员会欢迎信Dear Delegates, It is with great pleasure that I welcome you all to the Harvard Model United Nations China 2017!

HMUN China对于会议中出现的各类文件有着严格的学术标准,最终被会议通过且具有价值的决议应是数个小时激烈辩论、磋商谈判与沟通妥协的结果。工作文件的作用是收集代表们经过讨论后较为成型的观点,并在委员会内流通及传阅。工作文件中的观点被充分讨论后,由代表们按照真正联合国决议的格式被写作为正式的决议(草案)。为了最大程度地鼓励代表们协调彼此立场以达成合作,HMUN China不设置决议草案的正式起草过,且每个议题只有一份决议草案能够被投片通过成为最终决议。

危机设置

危机是模拟联合国会议中考验代表们对于议题相关突发事件的外交应变能力的重要手段,增加了会议的学术挑战性与趣味性。HMUN China 2017会议中的每个委员会都将不同程度地涉及到危机设置。危机事件通常情况下通过新闻媒体报道、专家证人口述、视频短片播放等形式发布。当危机事件出现在某个委员会中时,该会场需立即讨论和处理危机事件,在有限时间内寻求对于自然灾害、经济危机、军事冲突等突发事件的解决方案。联合国大会、经济与社会理事会、区域性国际组织涉及到的危机事件较少,不会明显打断会议进程,而特殊职能机构的会议进程会从始至终受到一些列危机事件的影响。无论是哪类委员会,危机都会增加议题的复杂性与偶然性,这也是变幻莫测的国际形势的一种真实缩影。

媒体团

经过申请进入媒体团的代表们将在会议中扮演全球具有影响力的各大媒体记者角色,对HMUN China会议进行全方位报道。记者们将携带相机等采访设备,与非政府组织的代表一样穿梭于各个委员会,捕捉有报道价值的会议精彩瞬间,并进行专业新闻报道。对于某个委员会已通过的决议文件的新闻评论,反映会议中某个热点争论性问题的政治漫画,对深受代表欢迎的某位哈佛会议指导的个人专访,以及会议进程中的精彩照片,都可以成为记者们工作内容中的亮点。媒体团代表将发布自行制作的新闻出版物,供全部会议人员阅读。媒体团将是整个会议中发布议题进展咨询、在各委员会之间沟通信息、报道及捕捉会议亮点的工作团队。

非政府组织

作为在当今全球事务中作用日益显著的国际关系行为体之一,非政府组织被HMUN China 2017列为其中一个特殊职能机构,为议题的辩论提供崭新的观点与视角。非政府组织的代表以人道主义的视角看待国际问题,穿梭于联合国大会、经济与社会理事会各委员会中参与辩论且提供咨询意见。在真实的国际关系中,具有影响力的非政府组织获得联合国的认可,有权以咨询者和观察者的身份出席联合国会议。该委员会的设置使参与代表有机会从不同视角观察、理解与讨论国际问题。

特色活动 | Social Events

哈佛论坛 | Directors Panel

哈佛论坛由各委员会中担任会议指导的哈佛学子主持,是代表们在会议之余了解哈佛文化、接触新领域知识的绝佳平台,也是中学生们与哈佛学子近距离面对面交流学习与大学申请经验的难得机会。哈佛论坛按照分会场的形式设置多个主题,包括大学生活与学习规划、哈佛文化、国际关系、科技与艺术等多个领域,代表们可以根据自身兴趣选择其一。往届哈佛论坛的精彩题目包括从中国哲学视角观察中美关系、哈佛学子暑期生活、诗歌及电影中的浪漫主义、幸福学等。

地球村 | Global Village

在会场之中为了国家利益据理力争的代表们,在会场之外对于国际大家庭中极具多元性的各国文化充满兴趣。地球村犹如模联会议中的“世博会”,使代表们通过欣赏各代表团所准备的各国传统服饰、文化风俗、特色小吃及文艺表演展示,更直观地了解世界各国文化传统。通过申请获得展示台位的代表团可在地球村中展示所代表的联合国成员国、或是自身所来自区域和国家的文化风情,并可以申请节目表演的机会,登上舞台成为聚光灯的焦点。地球村是代表们发现世界、发挥创意、发展友谊的绝佳平台。

代表舞会 | Delegate Dance

代表舞会作为国际模联会议中的传统特色活动,是往届HMUN China会议中深受代表们欢迎的社交聚会。在正式会议中身着正装紧张辩论的代表们,在舞会轻松愉悦的氛围中增进友谊,同时有机会结交来自不同委员会的新朋友。每年会议中的代表舞会都是一次洋溢青春活力、鼓励交流与广泛交友的精英聚会。

北京短途探索 | Excursions

作为HMUN China 2017的主办城市,北京是一座融合传统文明与现代精神的国际化大都市,来自各国的参会代表们期待着在会议之余感受这座城市的文化魅力。短途探索项目将作为一项特色活动安排在会期之间,组委会将提供前往故宫、天坛、北京胡同等文化景点的多条线路选择,使远道而来的代表们找到会议之外的城市探索乐趣。

组织团队 | Conference Staff

HMUN China 2017 会议由美国和中国最为专业和富有经验的模联项目团队组织与运营,致力于为参会代表们打造高水平学术与会议标准的国际模联经历。大会组委会由哈佛大学模拟联合国资深成员与嘉朋汉坊教育集团模联团队共同组成,在长达 10 个月的会议筹备期中全程把控每一个学术与会务细节。

全部16个委员会的会议指导是来自于哈佛大学的资深模联主席团成员,从会前写作议题指导,到会议中主持会议与引导辩论,他们都将给各委员会代表们带来纯粹的哈佛模联体验。与此同时,组委会还将面向高中生群体招募主席助理、志愿者等角色,给经验丰富的高中生模联爱好者及往届会议代表提供不同角色的体验与成长机会。

哈佛组委会 HMUN Secretariat

HMUN组委会成员是哈佛模联团队中会议组织经验最为丰富的杰出模联人。他们曾经在具有64年传统的HMUN会议及往届HMUN China会议中久经历练,并带着他们专业的模联经验与严谨的模联态度投入到HMUN China 2017的组织工作中。

会前准备 | Conference Preparation

模拟联合国如同各项体育运动,需要通过不断的实战练习来提升参会技巧。我们希望代表们通过HMUN China的会前学术准备及为期四天高水平的会议,全面提升自身能力的同时掌握模联参会技巧。如果这是你的第一次参会经历也请不必担心,许多代表都是初次接触模联的新手,通过充分有效的会前准备依然可以弥补经验的不足。充分利用会议网站上的各种信息及委员会背景文件,是最有效进行会前调研及准备辩论的方法。会议期间,会议指导也会认真回答关于会议流程、议题内容的任何专业性问题。会议指导的邮箱地址可以在组织团队板块找到,我们鼓励代表们在会前与会议指导加强联络。

议题分析
代表们应该充分准备委员会可能讨论的议题。背景文件将于2016年11月底发布,它包含了关于议题的全面介绍与重点解析。背景文件是代表们获取委员会和议题信息的一手资料,因为会议指导们会在编写背景文件的过程中将他们希望讨论的内容都逐一呈现给代表们。在阅读背景文件过程中,要特别留意“Questions A Resolution Must Answer”这一部分,因为其中包含了在会议中需重点磋商探讨的问题,以及代表最终提交的决议草案中应解决的问题。所有的背景文件都会包括一些参考书目或者推荐阅读的文献,代表们可以作为延伸资料阅读。

国家调研
对于即将代表的国家,不论是总体概况还是与议题相关的某一个特殊领域的详情,代表们均需做最充分地了解。背景文件包含了在议题所涉及的领域对国家集团立场做出分析的内容,代表们应该对他们所代表国家的特定立场有所了解。

《会前准备指南》

会议官方网站中包含有《会前准备》一项,帮助代表熟悉模联会议之前进行学术调研的方法与技巧。代表们在会议中的收获以会前准备所投入的努力是成正比的,充分的会前调研可以使会议中的讨论更加贴近国际关系中的现实博弈、更加激烈和有趣,使代表们更出色地做好对外交官的角色扮演。

立场文件
代表们需要在会前针对将要在会议中讨论的每个议题写作一份立场文件。在即将发布的《会前准备指南》中将详细介绍HMUN CHINA对于立场文件的内容与格式要求。特殊委员会的立场文件要求往往与联合国大会、经济与社会理事会和区域性国际组织下属的委员会不同,具体要求请参加各委员会背景文件中对于立场文件的要求。全部委员会的立场文件均需要在2017年2月22日前通过会议报名系统(MUNbase)提交。

常见问题 | Frequently Asked Questions

首先,HMUN CHINA追求卓越的学术标准,邀请优秀的哈佛会议指导对代表们进行指导,注重会议的学术价值;其次,HMUN CHINA面向全球范围招募代表,是优秀青年人的国际盛会;第三,HMUN CHINA带给代表们全面的“哈佛体验”,不仅将哈佛模联原汁原味地带到北京,更设置了“哈佛论坛”这一环节,让参会代表充分了解哈佛文化;最后,会议之余,大会组委会为代表们安排了多元的社交活动,如地球村、舞会、哈佛论坛和短途旅行,代表们在放松的同时能够体验多元文化,广泛结交朋友。

哈佛模联中国会议秉承哈佛模联已有的64年传统,邀请同年哈佛大学模拟联合国大会(HMUN)以及大学生模联会议(HNMUN)的原班人马主持、指导会议,他们具有丰富的模联经验,能够准确控制会议进程和引导辩论,保证会议与在波士顿举办的HMUN会议具有同等学术水平。

本届HMUN CHINA一如既往地面向全球招募代表,往届会议代表主要来自中国大陆、中国港澳台地区、部分亚洲国家、美国及欧洲等地区超过一百所学校的千余名学生。HMUN CHINA的特色在于其国际化程度高,参会者能够在会议中结识来自全球各地的优秀的同龄人。

本届HMUN CHINA要求参会者为9-12年级的在校学生,鉴于本次会议的全部委员会及活动的官方语言均为英文,所以要求代表具备使用英文进行学术调研、口语表达、文件写作的能力;不论是经验丰富的模联高手,还是即将首次参加会议的代表,只要对国际事务和模联活动充满热情,均可以通过HMUN CHINA锻炼与提升个人能力。

在本届HMUN CHINA所有委员会中,只有部分特殊委员会可以采用个人名义申请,且只能单独申请并提交相关材料。除这部分特殊委员会外,整体的会议报名都是采用代表团申请的形式,同一学校的学生组成代表团。无论是以代表团形式还是个人申请,来京参会都需要有领队老师陪同。

HMUN CHINA的奖项包括各委员会设置的Best Delegate(最佳代表奖)、 Outstanding Delegate(杰出代表奖)、Honorable Mention(荣誉提名奖)三个级别的奖项,大会设置的Delegation Awards(代表团奖)、Global Village Awards(地球村奖)等奖项。虽然会议设置的奖项是对表现出色的代表的奖励,但是代表们通过会议所获得的学术体验和能力提升更为珍贵。

会议注册于3月16日(周四)开幕式前进行,开幕式预计将于当天15:00开始(以最终公布的日程为准),参会代表务必在开幕式前到达。根据往届会议惯例,建议代表们在周三晚上或者周四上午到达。

代表们在参会之前首先要认真阅读背景文件,全面了解议题和委员会的背景,把握议题的争议焦点;其次,进行国家调研,结合对议题的深入分析形成本国的立场,提出针对议题的解决方案;然后,代表们需按照会议要求撰写立场文件并按时提交;最后,可以通过邮件积极地与会议指导探讨准备会议过程中的问题,以及同委员会代表交流沟通。

HMUN CHINA将是参会代表们在中学阶段参加高水平国际会议的一次难得经历,增加自身的课外活动履历。无论是会前学术准备还是会议中的辩论挫伤,都将有助于全面提升参会者的综合能力,既包括英语演讲能力、学术调研能力等硬实力,还包括领导力、团队合作能力、有效沟通能力等软实力。

除正式会议外,HMUN CHINA将会安排四项特色活动:哈佛论坛(Directors Panel)、 地球村(Global Village)、代表舞会(Delegate Dance)以及北京短途探索(Excursions)。代表们可以增进彼此之间的交流与了解,通过与来自哈佛大学的会议指导们交流互动感受哈佛文化,还可以探索北京的历史与文化。
