MUNSC is proud to announce that its member and seasoned MUN figure, Mr. Pawel Aleksander Kupis, chaired the Special Political and Decolonization Committee (SPECPOL) at the 20th Session of the Cambridge University International Model United Nations, held between the 28th and the 30th of November 2014.
One of the longest-running conferences in the UK, CUIMUN has over the past twenty years built a sterling reputation within both the regional and global Model UN circuit for intriguing topics, high-quality debate and social events.
The committee debate on Responsibility to Protect was extremely heated as the delegates attempted to propose concrete measures for the promotion and protection of democratic values and human rights while safeguarding the hallowed principle of state sovereignty.
SPECPOL also featured a discussion on the operations of international petroleum companies and their social responsibilities in host countries. The key development on the day was an oil spill from an American Japanese offshore drill in the East China Sea. Delegates were tasked with constructing a general framework for the future prevention of similar catastrophes. Furthermore, they were to devise a workable plan for immediate action in order to limit and ameliorate the environmental consequences of the oil spill.
