Hello and welcome to GSIS Model United Nations 2014. I’m Hadi Najafi and I’ll be chairing for Disarmament and International Security Committee. I’ve been in the MUN circle since 2010 and over the time have attended numerous conferences as delegate, as well as committee director. I also have the honor of being part of the executive council at the previous 2 GMUNs. The topics for DISEC are both very important and crucial. I expect a high level of debate in the committee so we can pass a practical good, practical resolution. I’ll do my best in aiding first time debaters and helping the speak up in the committee. Nobody in my committee will be allowed to remain throughout the sessions. If any delegate has any queries he/she can contact me on my email or on the Facebook group for our committee. Coming to the most important part of the committee, entertainment sessions. As chair, I have the authority to pick any delegate I want to entertain me. If you fail to do so, I will push you down the moon door. Or you can demand a trial by combat. Happy Researching! firstname.lastname@example.org
Hello delegates, It is an honor and a privilege to be your committee director at this years GMUN 2014. My experience with public speaking is rather varied and I’ve won several awards at both MUNs and in Parliamentary Style Debates, the highlight of which was my Best New Comer award at the U-17 nationals. I’ve chaired previously and rest assured, you are in good hands. I expect this committee to maintain a very high standard of debate but this does not mean that we can't have our fun in the entertainment sessions. I urge all of you to approach me with any problems you have both before and during the MUN. You can reach me at email@example.com in case of any queries.
Greetings everyone, With distinct honor and immense pleasure I, Mujtaba-ul-Haq, welcome you all to the GMUN 2014 conference, this September as the committee director of the United Nations Human Rights Council. I am currently doing my A-Levels from The City School CCI and my fields of study are business and humanities. MUNs and I go back when I started out three years ago in 2011 as a clueless and a queasy fellow, having sweaty palms and shaky legs; trapped in a room full of intimidating and proficient delegates and feeling claustrophobic. But due to my passion of public speaking and oratory, I was able to overcome that quickly and soon became adept towards it. Through the ages I’ve been a part of a dozen MUN conferences, with a success average close to a hundred percent, laden with the coveted Best Delegate and Outstanding Diplomacy awards and have specialized in humanitarian bodies. Apart from MUNs, I have been affiliated with various other forms of oratory and debating which include parliamentary style debating, declamations, bilinguals, extempore speeches, mock trial competitions and moot court competitions and have had an applaudable success ratio in all. Therefore, not only do I assure but I guarantee that you’re in safe hands. Also, let me tell you that I am a very hail-fellow and a jovial person; so apart from those intense debating, we shall indeed be having those occasional schmooses and joyous entertainment sessions with memories to rejoice and cherish upon. The topics chosen for this committee will undeniably benefit the well-researched delegates while the others should as well have something up their sleeve which they can use to contribute to the committee and have a healthy debate. Remember two things, firstly, the topic guide is just a starting point for your research and secondly, Wikipedia won’t get you anywhere so all the delegates should dig deep and use plentiful sources to have substantial research material which can be further utilized by them to support their say and make bang-up working papers and draft resolution. A word of forethought, I do welcome nervous debaters but I do not welcome imprudent and irrational ones hence logic and reasoning are your tools of survival. If any of you have any questions or queries, feel free to inbox me on Facebook or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Looking forward to meeting you all soon. Till then, happy researching!
Dear Delegates, It is my pleasure to welcome you to the third session of GMUN and the Human Rights Council. Words cannot express how excited I am to meet each of you this September and share what will be an extraordinary Model United Nations experience. My name is Nausherwan Khalid, and I have recently completed my O-Levels at BMI. I started my Debating journey 3 years ago, and since then I had the opportunity to attend countless MUNs both in Islamabad and Lahore, and even having the opportunity to attend an International one. Model United Nations is concept which emaculates the ability to develop skills which are useful throughout our lives, mainly, research, writing, and public speaking, problem solving, consensus building, conflict resolution and compromise, and cooperation. Although September may seem far, preparations are already underway for what will be an outstanding conference. The Human Rights Council is a committee that requires you to demonstrate critical thinking, innovative ideas, rapid flexibility, and multilateral collaboration. Before then, I encourage you to familiarize yourself with your country, our topic, and the role and the mandate of the Human Rights Council. The study guide will be a great first resource, but I also strongly encourage supplementing it with your own research as the issues are constantly evolving and require extremely distinctive, proportionate and innovative solutions and ideas. I’m here to help each of you have an amazing GMUN experience. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, concerns, or comments about the Human Rights Council or its agenda. Feel free to send an email simply introducing yourself as well; I would love to become familiar with each of you before the conference begins. I very much look forward to meeting you and witness the products of your preparation during GMUN 2014. Take care, get excited, and see you at Opening Ceremony. Cheers, Ego vobis valedico, Muhammad Nausherwan Khalid Co-Chair UNHRC
Greetings Delegates, Most of you know me. For those who don't, what were you doing till now, living under a rock maybe? My name is Mohammad Salman Khan Niazi and I will the co-chairing the International Crisis Ad-Hoc Committee with one of the closest MUN friends Sabeeh Tahir. Right now I am an ex-student of GSIS, having just finished my A levels. I would love to brag about how many awards or gavels I have won, both domestically and internationally, but my job here is not to scare the living daylights out of you, the delegates, but rather to guide the committee to a reasonable outcome. Yet, rest assured: lie in front of me and I will humiliate and embarrass you. We will try to be lenient on the rules of procedure as it is a crisis committee. There will be no written topics hence meaning no position papers which clearly means while your teammates will be stressing over PPs you will be enjoying a Pina Colada in Hawaii(metaphorically). Rest assured this will be the most tough committee in GMUN and no I don't mean it as a joke. In this committee we will be handing out awards based on your problem solving skills, diplomacy and on the spot thinking ability. I love Masterchef, Agents of Shield, food*obviously*, dancing, gaming and lastly Jennifer Lawrence. Intellectually I love watching movies and reading about the CRM(civil rights movement) and anything that is not mainstream really. Looking forward to meet you guys in September. Good luck. Regards, M.S.K.N Co-Chair ICAC
It’s an absolute honor to be chairing you all at this years’ edition of GMUN. My sustained success in the MUNing circuit for 3 years at both National and International Conferences is only to suggest that you’re in good hands. I realize the need for first timers to get up to speed and I assure you, Salman and I will not let you panic so there’s nothing to fear about coming to this years’ International Crisis Ad-Hoc Committee. Being a huge fan of this committee, I expect us to get along well since we have a mutual interest in ensuring a ‘lively’ committee. The reason I used that cheeky adjective was to hint that if I deem that every delegate is trying to the best of their abilities even if it’s just observing the speeches of other delegates to help prepare their own, I Will Reward You! So make sure you don’t leave your fun side at home while gearing up for what I expect to be a productive debate. Looking forward to meet you all. Godspeed!
Hi Delegates! I am your chairperson for the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, better known simply as the OIC. My name is Taaha Muddassir Mirza and it will be my job to ascertain that this committee not only runs smoothly but also turns out to be a life changer for the newbies and an encouragement for those who are seasoned debaters. I am currently pursuing my studies in the field of medicine from Rawalpindi Medical College. Due to the jam packed timetables, as in most universities, I find it difficult to take out time for debates, so my advice to you is to enjoy all this while you can, don’t let this opportunity go. I am hoping for a fun committee session which ends up analyzing and solving global issues with intellect and maturity. I won’t be bragging about my history with MUNs, but rest assured you are in safe hands. If you need any help whatsoever feel free to leave me a message. See you at the conference! Oh it’s best I tell you how there will be no compromise on the decorum, but be certain, I am not at all strict when it comes to ‘new comers’ so participate as much as you can. And oh, do email me your position papers before the start of the global village. Taaha M Mirza, TaahaMirza@gmail.com
Asslam o Alaikum delegates. I'm Ayesha Azhar, your Committee Director for IAEA, at GMUN'14. It’s both an honor and a privilege to be in the Secretariat, as finally I have something cool to brag about till I unlock my next life achievements. I indulge in debates and all kinds of public speaking, simply because I like to prove I'm right, and because long and complex words make me feel almost photosynthesis. *This joke will be processed till the next GMUN arrives* Although I'm a humanitarian/ FIFA debater at MUNs, the adventure of chairing IAEA will indeed be, a pleasant one of its own, especially since you will be giving me that experience. Do not hesitate to speak what rolls off your tongues, people will listen because you have a voice. And this experience shall aid you further in life; all the more reason why MUNs are the best thing that happened to me after football. I expect, well prepared, daring(yes, I can get crazy with entertainment sessions) and bold individuals to speak up in my committee. You will always be encouraged, never the opposite! As you read this, please keep in mind that you are part of a prestigious MUN, and that your struggle for awards will be a massive highlight on your debating careers. Fight on, research well, and I will see you this frosty December, as you heat things up with enjoyable debates! Queries? Funny questions? Help with research? Do not hesitate to drop an email: email@example.com Glow and grow, delegates!
Greetings, delegates! I have been bestowed with the honour of being the co-chair here at GMUN ‘14 for the IAEA. I have attended and bagged awards in several MUN conferences which have made me well- familiar with the rules and procedures of the assembly. I am a ‘newbie-friendly’ chair, so my advice for all first timers is to research well and stay up to date with the political happenings around the globe. I wish you all the best of luck!
My name is Haris Pasha and I will serve as the committee director of The United Nations Development Project alongside the indomitable Abdullah Iftikhar. I am currently in my last year of O Levels at Beaconhouse F-11 Campus Islamabad. My association with public speaking began at the first ever GMUN, so this is a conference that no doubt holds a special place in my heart. I hope this event brings you as much pleasure as it brought me the first time is took part in it. Prepare, Research, Debate, Direct, and Resolve. If you follow these five steps, you will no doubt leave the conference more decorated than you were before it. As far as instructions regarding me personally, let me assure you, my experience and credentials will allow me to get away with being the kind of committee director I want to and will be. Suit up. Enjoy it. Win it. Did I forget to mention how legendary/unorthodox/inappropriate our entertainment sessions are going to be?
Greetings Delegates! I'm Rabia and it gives me immense pleasure to welcome you all as your co- committee director of the United Nations Security Council at this years GMUN'14. I happen to be a very keen participant and an absolute enthusiast when it comes to various forms of public speaking. Over the years, with help, support and constant encouragement from my peer group I have perfected my skills in gracefully accepting humiliation at the hands of my opponents ¬ YOU WISH you could touch this, I'm just playing. Keeping it sweet and simple, so my expectations off of all of you will be no less than a cliche when it comes to the debate; research hard and thorough cause you'd at least want to know what you'd be stressing your lungs over, and be sure to let it all out during the sessions. Any committee goes incomplete without entertainment, and that is one aspect I guarantee to be a wholesome part of the experience. However, we all must ensure at the same time that the true purpose is not sidelined. So brace yourselves, with adequate research and effort from all of you, this conference shall enable you all to analyze world politics and dissect international relations to the core, allowing you all to truly interpret global dynamics and take away with you a broader perspective of global issues that we face today. *Fingers crossed* Can’t wait to see you all! Feel free to get in touch for any queries at firstname.lastname@example.org. Cheers!

In the past two decades the rapidly growing world trend has been toward globalization. With the emergence of the internet as a means of communication and the increasing accessibility of international trade physical barriers are not the only barriers withering away. Protective tariffs are plummeting and free trade agreements are becoming more prevalent. Romania appreciates that globalization creates favorable situations for expansion of commercial as well as economic assets. In the past year Romania has seen a foreign direct investment (FDI) increase of 199%. Inward FDI increased from EURO 234 million in 2005 to EURO 699 million in 2006. However, Romania realizes that increased globalization does not automatically produce more equality.
Globalization and Development can contribute to the advancement of the overall international human condition; however, the delegation of Romania recognizes that without proper regulation the potential for advancement will remain limited to an elite few individuals, businesses, and nations. Unless checked and aimed toward the common good, globalization cannot effectively serve the global community. Crucial in dealing with the complexities of globalization, good governance must act with solidarity and responsibility. Romania believes that in involving people in globalization we must promote moral values, democratic principals, inclusive global political culture, institutions that safeguard both individual civil rights and inherent freedoms, and the common good. In addition, coping with the influx of information from globalization governments must act with solidarity and insight. Access to digital education will undoubtedly result in the confidence of citizens in their respective administrations and allow for a greater degree of transparency, and therefore a lesser degree of corruption. Romania believes the multinational business community has the ability and the obligation to support pertinent values in human rights, labor standards, and environmental preservation. As stated by the president, Mr. Traion Basescu, Romania feels a "heartfelt attachment to multilateralism, as an effective instrument designed to identify the adequate answers to the challenges brought by globalization."
Romania is party to the majority of multilateral treaties and conventions identified as such by the Secretary General in the context of the Millennium Summit in 2001. Romania has always supported innovative and effective ways of establishing cooperation within and between regional organizations. As one of the newest members of the European Union, Romania is an active member of the World Trade Organization, and looks forward to offering its support to the redirection of globalization to best benefit the global community.
