Crisis committees are substantially different from a regular MUN simulation: crisis is less formal and far more dynamic (and at times – dramatic). Each cabinet will be comprised of about 10 people, lead by one or two chairs who also have a substantive role in the dynamics of the cabinet. The simulation of a crisis entails multitasking form the delegates: in a crisis cabinet, a lot of things might be going on at the same time. Delegates will need to formally debate, communicate with one another, communicate with the Backroom, keep track of the press, enhance diplomatic relationships with other delegates and develop a strategy.
Unlike other types of committees, Crisis actually moves forward in time and can be affected by events that occur in the outside world. In sessions debate may be interrupted with important news or information. Wars may break out, natural disasters can occur, and scandals or corruption can be revealed. Delegates must be able to think quickly, for a single crisis may alter the course of the debate and create new issues to be tackled.
The EuroMUN 2018 crisis simulation will be a Joint Cabinet crisis and the scenario will be announced a few days before the conference. You can find a much more detailed overview of what a crisis is in the crisis guide.
