Honorable Prospective Delegates,
Distinguished Model United Nations Enthusiasts,
While being fraught with absolute exhilaration and contentment to serve you as the Secretary-General of such an eminent conference, I am more than pleased to be witnessing the initial session of Model United Nations LAST Conference which will be held between 3-5th July 2020 in Bilim University, Antalya.
MUNLAST 2020 will empower you to represent a foreign state and its political views in three of the five committees we propose this year.
Our initial wish is to propose a Model United Nations Conference, having an Academic Team under my and Mr. Maz’s command, whilst the Under-Secretaries-General shall have ultimate knowledge in regards to the Rules of Parliamentary Procedure meanwhile Secretariat shall receive, print and distribute documents, reports and resolutions of the Committees to the members of the United Nations or other international bodies and generally perform all other work that the Committee may require in accordance with Rule 98 of UN Charter. The Committee Directors shall be mandated to direct the committee with the powers granted by the Rules of Parliamentary Procedure.
Committees of the Conference should consist not more than 5 Committees overall, containing one Main General Assembly Committee, two committees associated with the United Nations itself, one Specialized Committee and a Crisis Cabinet essential to fields of study.
Consequently, each field of an organisation by some means connects one to another therefore making it fundamental to obey the hierarchy comply with its necessities.
In three of five committees we offer this year, you will envisage the world’s exponential issues, including Islamophobia, Effects of the Legalization of Drugs on Cartels and issues that are being faced by immigrants. Another committee we propose simulates the British Parliament’s Upper House where participants have the ultimate authority in regards to the Bills they have to offer. Besides current issues, one committee to be mentioned tends to modify the history and reconfigure the future in all of its forms from the Ancient Rome to Holy Roman Empire.
Where there is abundance, where there is unity; there is strength, there is power. As Kathy Calvin, the President and Chief Executive Officer of the United Nations Foundation, once stated, “There is power in individuals, and now we are learning there is power in individuals coming together.”
Model United Nations encourages the development of remarkable skills essential to all fields of study and employment, such as but not limited to strong leadership, innovative thinking and public speaking, negotiation, mediation, consensus-building and the ability to rapidly form relationships with people of different backgrounds and cultures.
This aims to build an understanding of global challenges and governance surrounded by youth who crosses borders of culture and nationality. Using the knowledge gained, the experiences and the relationships formed in such conference and through other Model United Nations events, it shall be hoped that the next generation of world leaders will be equipped to face global issues with the spirit of international cooperation.
To conclude, on behalf of the Academic and Organization teams, I would like to stress my enormous gratification and exceeding thrill to be welcoming you to MUNLAST 2020 conference, which will originate a new era among the MUN Society.
Secretary-General of MUNLAST 2020
