JCC

The Joint Crisis Committee is truly unique. With assassinations, war, negotiations, and everything in between, delegates will be constantly faced with new challenges. The standards of diplomacy and international collaboration that are established in most committees are replaced with aggressive debates, espionage, and a world where no one can be trusted.

JCC consists of two independent blocs that have drastically opposing views but must learn to collaborate or face mutually assured destruction. During a single, continuous crisis, delegates will perpetually advance the committee through private and public directives, which will take immediate effect and change the nature of the crisis. Throughout the conference, delegates will be required to think on their feet, act decisively, and make decisions that will ultimately determine the fate of the world. JCC is meant for delegates who are confident in their public speaking ability and prepared to create imaginative solutions to achieve their desired goals.

Position Papers are mandatory, and must be turned in to the dais by 11:59PM on Nov 5, 2017. The dais’ e-mail address is JCC@pacificmun.com. Late position papers will not be considered for an award unless an extension has been requested by the delegate and approved by the dais at least 24 hours in advance.

Further questions or inquiries can be directed to the dais at jcc@pacificmun.com.
