General Assembly (GA) Committees function similar to the United Nations General Assembly, with each delegate representing an individual nation. Delegates work together over the course of the conference to pass non-binding resolutions to one or, occasionally, both topics outlined in the background guide.
Commission on Sustainable Development (CSD)
International Organization for Migration
Economic and Social Councils
The ECOSOC committees function similar to GA Committees, considering they are a subset of the UN. ECOSOC's are, however, typically smaller than GA Committees in terms of number of delegates in the room. This makes these bodies the perfect environment for delegates who hope to be more collaborative in a smaller and more intimate setting.
United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues (UNPFII)
Crisis Committees are the smallest committees by number of delegates, and require flexibility, quick thinking, and immense creativity. Crisis Committees can simulate anything from the colonization of Mars 50 years in the future to the Taiping Rebellion in the 1800's. Here, delegates will represent an individual character, and must be ready to respond to changing events, which take the form of "crisis updates." Instead of passing a resolution, delegates pass both individual and joint directives in order to respond to current updates, as well as the general issue of the committee at large.
