LETTER FROM SECRETARY GENERAL
Most esteemed participants, dear guests, honorable advisors and all hearing this message,
On behalf of the Secretariat, I would like to welcome you to the fifth annual session of Kartal Anadolu Imam Hatip High School Model United Nations Conference, which will be taking place between 20th and 23rd of February 2020. It is my greatest honor to host you as the Secretary-General for KAIHLMUN’20 – a conference committed to fulfilling young generations’ thirst for knowledge and desire to assert their voices.
Building on its four year of success, KAIHLMUN’s fifth Session strives to provide every delegate, new or experienced, with a dynamic and enriching opportunity to explore the platform of Model UN and unlock his or her potential abilities. Being politically, economically and socially aware; in this day and age, is integral for human survival. With each person being affected by policymaker decisions, or being a part of the decision making process themselves. By using that insight and personal involvement in debate and policy changing, participants can identify the underlying goals, and implications of political, economic and social incidents.
By choosing “Builder and Destroyer of the Union: Antagonism” as our theme, we aim to analizing the reasons and consequences of the rivalry between states and civilizations within the past, present and the future. Bearing this in mind, we aim to take further steps and add more into what has already been accomplished within this ultimate challenge and aim to shape the people of today into the leaders of tomorrow.
This year, we are proud to introduce that the United Nations High Commission for Refugees Committee (Arabic) will be tackling the refugees’ economic inclusion and their access to education, being in cooperation with United Nations Refugee Agency. United Nations Development Science and Technology Commission will try to find solutions for the future problems caused by Genetic Editing on humans in year 2077. While Disarmament and International Security Council will be discussing upon preventing biological weapons proliferation and bioterrorism threats, the Special Political and Colonial Committee will focus on Implementation of the declaration on the granting of independence to colonial countries and people and determining the statues of private military companies. United Nations Climate Change Summit Committee will seek to find solutions to the problems caused by climate change, or the people that lived in this world. North Atlantic Treaty Organization Committee will negotiate upon the energy conflicts in Eastern Mediterranean Sea. Furthermore, the United Nations Security Council Committee will take actions for the situation in Haiti. Joint Crisis Committee will go back to 1975, when the Lebanese civil war breaks out. Great Heathen Army will act accordingly to the past events in an open agenda to reshape the course of history. Last but not least, the Parliamentary Committee (Ottoman Turkish) will determine the future of Ottoman Empire after the 1908 Revolution. I can truly assure you that you will have an unforgettable experience from the dynamics of global relations to the existential threat of climate change. As the Antonio Guterres said “We are the first generation growing up in this shadow of problems, and the last that can prevent its own consequences”.
All in all, we endeavor to uphold our long-standing ideals of creating a premium experience for all participants, and in doing so, facilitating your intellectual and personal development. We hope that KAIHLMUN’20 will bring you the inspiration and empowerment to make a difference. On behalf of my academic and organization team, once again, welcome to KAIHLMUN’20.
