Welcome to MUNAYD KINSHASA 2023 !!!
We would like to warmly welcome you to our very first MUNAYD KINSHASA 2023 conference. This 3 days conference will be held at the heart of Kinshasa in the Democratic Republic of Congo from 10 November to 12 November 2023 . We have partnered up with the University of Kinshasa to bring to you the perfect MUN conference that will forever be engraved in your memories.
As this is a very special conference for MUNAYD and its 1st edition in Kinshasa, we are welcoming every delegate to participate and give their all during this conference.
We have prepared 3 committees that you can choose from, namely;
- African Union (AU)
The African Union (AU) is a continental union and comprises 55 African countries with the purpose of providing a space for these nations to come together and tackle regional issues and crises. The AU promotes economic development in the region through international cooperation and pushes for the unity of African member states. The union’s mission of diplomacy also extends to mediating territorial, civil, and regional conflicts.
Topic: The Post-COVID effect
Hunger and poverty crises have been escalating in Africa for a long period of time and have left millions of people at risk of starvation and even more at risk of malnutrition. However, some measures have been put to place to counteract such crisis, but the effect of COVID has left several nations devastated. Delegates must address the post-COVID effect and how it has affected most African Nations, most importantly suggest comprehensive, practical, and applicable solutions.
2. United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR)
The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees is a United Nations agency mandated to aid and protect refugees, forcibly displaced communities, and stateless people, and to assist in their voluntary repatriation, local integration, or resettlement to a third country.
Topic: Effects of conflicts amongst African States
In West and Central Africa, the needs of people displaced by protracted conflicts are growing faster than the humanitarian response can expand. Humanitarian conditions will continue deteriorating unless peace efforts can contain the region’s conflicts, which mainly stem from political instability, intercommunal competition for limited resources and tensions because of climate change. Delegates must address on how the UNHCR can better protect, monitor, and responds to arising emergencies.
3. Crisis Committee
A crisis committee is a decision-making body that has more power than a traditional committee. This means that the body has power unto itself that does not need to be granted by the obedience of its members. Groups that look like this include a cabinet, a royal court, a board of directors of a company, a rebel group, or really any small group which possesses political power.
Topic: The Democratic Republic of the Congo–Rwanda tensions
In 2022, heavy tensions broke out between the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Rwanda, which have led to several alleged attacks by Congolese and Rwandan forces on each other's territory. Rwandan forces have been caught crossing into the DRC multiple times, usually fighting alongside Congolese rebels. Delegates should address the situations and find possible solutions for peace.
