Welcome to PACMUN 2020! PACMUN is proud to host a wide variety of unique, timely, and interesting committees to suit the passions and abilities of any delegate. Whether it is your first conference or your twentieth, PACMUN has a committee for you. Our Staff and Secretariat teams have worked tirelessly to polish background guides and design committees to ensure that your conference will be an unforgettable experience, whether you choose a General Assembly or advanced crisis committee. With topics ranging from the Irish civil war to cybersecurity, you cannot go wrong when choosing any committee; however, I think that you will find there is a committee here designed just for you. PACMUN will be a riveting weekend this November and I personally hope to see you there.
We have handpicked our six principal bodies this year to cover the widest range of topics possible. From discussing rights of indigenous peoples to combating maritime crime, these committees have the unique ability to solve almost any global issue. All committees, while differing in difficulty, have the same goal of promoting diplomacy and collaboration. To achieve success, delegates must work alongside others while balancing the beliefs of their government. Within this group of committees, delegates can both examine issues they are currently passionate about and explore new horizons of debate.
Sustainable Development of Megacities
Ensuring Water Security
Reviewing Peacekeeping Standards and Regulations
Protecting Indigenous Communities
Combating Maritime Crime in International Waters
Ensuring the Safety of Healthcare Workers in Conflict Zones
Health Conditions in Prisons
Protecting the Right to a Fair Trial
Safeguarding Individual Rights in the Military
The Situation in Kosovo
These six committees are some of the most uniquely positioned to affect change around the globe. All six bodies wield vast influence in directing a dynamic international response towards some of the world’s most pressing, talked-about issues. These problems encompass a huge range of topics, from mental health to military proliferation to artificial intelligence. Delegates will have the opportunity to not only discuss and solve problems of the world, but to do so in the special context of a regional or powerful intergovernmental committee. While all delegates are welcome, intermediate delegates especially will thrive in the thought-provoking, creative, collaborative, and fast-paced environments that are typical of ECOSOC.
Improving Regulations and Implementation of Cyber Security
Reducing Persecution Against Religious Minorities
Transforming Emergency Response Through Technology
Preserving Job Security in the Age of Automation
Ensuring the Safe and Economic Integration of Artificial Intelligence

Managing Military and Nuclear Proliferation
Managing Population Growth
Foreign Trade in Island and Landlocked Nations

These five committees comprise the most fast-paced and advanced committees Model UN has to offer. From battling external forces to reinstate the KGB to discussing issues affecting America today in the US Senate, these committees are unique and inventive while preserving the educational aspect of Model UN. Each committee has a compelling storyline and set of end goals created by exceptional dais teams. These committees are highly complex and best suited for advanced delegates due to the different Rules of Procedure (ROP) and Rules of Engagement (ROE) resulting in a challenging yet valuable experience for delegates in these committees.
