While traditional General Assembly and Specialized committees operate on a static timeline, Crisis does not. Instead, the actions the delegates take directly affect each update and influence the eventual end result of the committee. As such, the strategies to do well in a Crisis committee differ from those of a GA or Specialized. Here are some strategies that have worked for me.

Ever since moving to Peru in 2012, Rebecca (more often known as Becca) has been heavily involved in all things MUN. In 2015 she ran her school conference as Secretary General, and (simultaneously, because that’s how it works there) directed the World War I joint crisis committee. Since taking part in the “Iraq 2006 reconstruction and stability specialised committee” at Harvard MUN 2015, she’s been a firm crisis delegate, going on to attend (whether directing or debating) 15 other crises in Peru and winning Best Delegate at HMUN 2016 at Outstanding Delegate the near year at Harvard National MUN. She now studies at the University of Manchester, where she has recently been elected to be the training officer for the 2018-19 academic year. When she’s not MUNing, she enjoys attending weird and eccentric talks all over the UK, reading books, studying some obscure aspect of law, and drinking a (more than occasional) glass of Gin and Tonic (or Sauvignon Blanc, at a pinch).
