COMMITTEE DESCRIPTION

Crisis resolution critical to the international community. Crises can range from regional disputes between nations and ethnic groups, to economic shocks that affect global equilibrium, to changes in peace agreements between international coalitions. The purpose of the Crisis Resolution Committee (CRC) is to answer the question, “how can different perspectives work together to solve global crises and achieve peace, growth, and stability?”

In CRC, a historical or current crisis is presented to the delegates through a variety of group learning activities. Once the delegates have a good understanding of the situation, they assume the roles of representatives from nations orĀ ethnic groups affected by the crisis. The delegates first convene in four (4) sub-committees to separately address facets of the crisis such as security concerns, political and legal implications, economic issues, and humanitarian issues. By the end of the session, the resolutions written by those sub-committees are strengthened and combined into a Crisis Solution Plan, which is then voted on by all delegates. Delegates are not required to prepare for CRC prior to conference. However, delegates are encouraged to become familiar with the crisis scenario.
