Welcome to CALMUN 2019!

9-12 May 2019



Honourable delegates and advisors who make a difference every day,



It is my utmost pleasure, as the Secretary-General, to welcome you all to the fourth edition of CALMUN, that will take place between 9-12 May 2019. The CALMUN family is more than devoted to continuing the legacy and aims to hold both academically and organizationally fulfilling conference for our most distinguished prospective participants. We, as the academic and the organization team of CALMUN, exert ourselves once again, to simulate the United Nations by doing it justice, considering the facts that the UN provides humanity with an essential platform to achieve a better world and MUN community consists of highly conscious teenagers who are concerned about our world's issues. In this years edition of CALMUN, the Academic team intensifies both on General Assembly and Specialized Agencies, that aim fruitful debates and development for those who are already experienced and an extraordinary first time experience for those, who are new to the MUN experience. Our conference consists of 9 committees, 6 of them being special and the rest being General Assembly Committees. Whilst special committees are suitable for experienced delegates; GA committees are apt for beginners. The committees are listed as Disarmament and International Security Committee (DISEC), Social, Humanitarian and Cultural Committee (SOCHUM), Special Political and Decolonization Committee (SPECPOL); House of Commons of the United Kingdom, Union of South American Nations, Security Council, NATO, and Joint Crisis Committee. Lastly, with these committees and with the organizational side of our conference, we hope to provide an exceptional experience for our participants during which they can enhance their horizons, present a new perspective and develop their skills while having fun. Thank you for your time and consideration. We would be more than glad to see you this May!


Sincerely,

Nalan Özcan

Secretary-General of CALMUN 2019





Most distinguished prospective participants of CALMUN,



I, as the Deputy Secretary-General of Cağaloğlu Anadolu Lisesi Model United Nations Conference, am more than honoured to invite you all to the fourth session of CALMUN.
We are living in a world which is globalizing rapidly and becoming more people-oriented every day. Therefore, it is currently a must to possess 21st-century skills such as problem-solving, effective communication and most importantly the ability to think in a global aspect. These being our starting point, we, the academic team of CALMUN, have prepared a total of nine committees with the aim of providing every single participant with a realistic and enriching United Nations experience. In the fourth edition of CALMUN, three General Assembly committees, which will proceed with THIMUN procedure, and six special committees, which will be guided by Harvard procedure, will take place. This year the General Assembly Committees will be focusing on the most crucial social and security issues of our generation while endeavouring to better the actions of the United Nations itself. Our three intermediate level special committees; USAN, House of Commons of the United Kingdom and NATO will try to resolve the quite controversial problems of the most important European and South American actors on the global and regional stage: Drugs, corruption, nuclear threat and maybe the hardest one to discuss: Brexit. In our last, yet most challenging three committees, UNSC, Nixon's Cabinet and The Joint Crisis Committee, the delegates will have the chance to alternate the course of history, solve crucial security problems and develop a better understanding of past events have shaped our today and our future.
In conclusion, I want to thank you for your interest and state that we are looking forward to seeing you at CALMUN!


Best Regards,

Beyza Ovalıoğlu
