Letter from Secretary-General
Highly esteemed prospective participants,
First of all I would like to thank you for your interest and utmost consideration throughout the application process. İt’s a thrilling privilege and unutterable honor to welcome and serve you all to the sixth annual session of the Troy Model United Nations Conference 2023. The sixth edition of Troy MUN will be held in Çanakkale which is a special town, seaport of the country and is a significant center of tourism. My name is Baran Akarsu and it is my utmost honor to serve you as the Secretary-General. As well as the previous years we have the same excitement, energy, and happiness to serve you all. Our academic and operations teams made an incredible effort to provide you with an unforgettable MUN experience.
In our sixth year, we are dedicated to present you a conference that outscores all other MUN conferences. With that goal in mind, we have been working to excel the academic and organizational quality through careful planning, training and execution. This year we will host three committees for our junior participants and three committees for senior participants that will focus on some of the most pressing issues that our world faces. This year we have decided to broaden our horizons and prepared exciting committees and topics for you. For our junior edition, delegates of the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF) committee will focus on Promoting Peaceful Inclusive Sustainable Societies For Children, while delegates appointed to the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women Committee (UN Women) will discuss Empowering Women’s Leadership and Economic and Political Participation. Meanwhile our United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP) committee will focus on Ensuring Sustainable Goals For The Environment. On the other hand for our senior edition United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women Committee (UN Women) will focus on Ending Violence Against Women, while delegates appointed to the Disarmament and International Security Committee (DISEC) will discuss Nigerian Coup. Meanwhile our International Civil Aviation Organization Committee (ICAO) will focus on The Next Phase In Tackling Aviation Accidents. Also we will host 2 special committees this year. First the Joint Crisis Committee (JCC) will be a simulation of The Battle of Kosovo in 1448 and the second Historical Crisis Committee (HCC) will be a simulation of Cyprus Peace Operation.
As The Academic Team, we are very excited to hear your take on these crucial agenda items. I have full faith in all of our board members to guide you through the rules of procedure so that our delegates can practice negotiation, problem-solving, conflict resolution, critical thinking, diplomacy, and collaboration as they act as world leaders, policymakers, and diplomats. Especially without Miss. Arzu Kotan and Mrs. Çağlayan Nazlıca this conference wouldn’t have been possible.
Let’s get along with each other this November at Çanakkale to take part in creating something new by what the ministers, presidents and government officials discuss and see if we can do things differently. Do not forget to be a part of this conference and read your study guides, find some motions and prepare some speeches. Buckle your seatbelts for three days of perfection and diplomacy. I hope this conference will take a place in your memories.
Secretary-General of TroyMUN
