From the Suez Canal Crisis to the French Revolution, the Historical Crisis Committee (HCC) is committed to resolving and reshaping the issues that our ancestors faced. The HCC is a crisis committee, meaning that ROP will be different than in regular committees. Delegates will have to adapt and respond to constantly changing environments and make the best out of every situation given to them. Instead of writing resolutions, delegates will write directives; short operative clauses that describe what delegates want to accomplish. HCC is a dynamic and fast paced committee with constantly changing issues.
