UNITED NATIONS SECURITY COUNCIL (SC) – Crisis Committee
Topic: Open Agenda – Crisis committee.
Spots: 30 (15 Double Delegations)
The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) is one of the six principal organs of the United Nations, charged with primary responsibility for the maintenance of international peace and security. Its powers include the establishment of peacekeeping operations, the establishment of international sanctions, and the authorization of military action through Security Council resolutions; it is the only UN body with the authority to issue binding resolutions to member states. Five powerful countries sit as “permanent members” along with ten elected members with two-year terms. UNSC dispatches military operations, imposes sanctions, mandates arms inspections, deploys election monitors and more.
Andrea is a third year student majoring in International Studies at Carlos III University, and second year student of Law at UNED. Her first approach to Model United Nations was five years ago at high school, and since then she has attended more than 15 models -in over 4 countries- as staff, delegate, chair, Secretary General and Secretariat. Since then, her passion about these conferences has not stopped growing.
This year chairing the Security Council will be a new challenge for her, because despite she is passionate about international security, this will be her first time managing a crisis committee.

My name is Emre Ilker Karatas. I am senior student of Law and International Relations at Koc University, Istanbul. I have been doing MUN for more than 3 years now and I have had the chance to serve at many different positions and many different conferences. However, this will be my first time attending UC3MUN and I am glad to be a part of the Chairing team here. I am sure that we will have a great time here in Madrid.
Hope to see you in February 2017!.
