A letter from the Secretary General

Dear delegates,  

It is my greatest pleasure to welcome you to AUMUN 2018, and as the Secretary General, I can only hope that you will have the best Experience. AUMUN is more than just a MUN, it is a cultural mixture where knowledge has no limit. Organized by UAMIMUN, the MUN Society of the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, this edition will be held in our alma mater: the Faculty of Law of the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. This third edition wishes to follow the example of AUMUN 2017 and AUMUN 2016, consolidating this adventure as a model where debate, services and social events are on point. Born in 2012, UAMIMUN is a consolidated MUN Society, having trained almost 200 delegates, sent delegations to the post prestigious conferences and having achieved awards in both National and Internacional Conferences.


AUMUN held its first edition on 2016, receiving more than 150 national and international delegates, succeeding beyond our initial expectations. During its second edition AUMUN consolidated itself as a model where fun and work unite to bring you the best experience possible. With the desire of bringing you the best, the Secretariat is already working tirelessly to make AUMUN 2018 a memorable experience that we cannot wait to share with you. Finally, thank you for your support and interest on our conference, we really hope we are able to transmit to you the eagerness and determination that we are putting on it.

CRISIS (English/ADVANCED LEVEL committee)
CRISIS (English/ADVANCED LEVEL committee)

Topics
In the year of 2019, two great powers held the balance of the world´s order: the Russian Federation and the United States of America, ruled by powerful and respected leaders. The communication and understanding between those two countries was, without a single doubt, the pillar of a lasting world-wide peace. However, when the United States declared the Third World War upon Russia, civilization itself was dragged into bloodshed and destruction, which ended with the absolute victory of the United States of America, and the defeat of the rest of nations, no matter if they sided with Russia or if they declared themselves neutral. The United States, now controlling over 70% of the earth´s territory, signed peace with the only five countries that managed to survive the War, a peace that would come at a price: absolute obedience to the USA. Nearly 50 years after these events, in the 2070, the five surviving nations, tired of such a regime of slavery in disguise, unite under the flag of the Freedom Alliance in order to stand against the tyranny of the United States and recover what is rightfully theirs: liberty. Of course, the USA won´t accept such defiance, and will try to impose its will by force. Who will you side with? Will it be freedom and justice? Or maybe order and power? Yours is the choice in a world ready to be reborn from its ashes. Please, take into consideration that the level of this committee is ADVANCED and the language will be English

Historical Security Council (English - ADVANCED LEVEL committee)
Historical Security Council (English - ADVANCED LEVEL committee)

Topics
The AUMUN Historical Security Council recreates the Security Council during the 90s. This committee has the same power as the Security Council so it has the primary responsibility for the maintenance of international peace and security. It uses the help of other General Assembly Committees in order to achieve this goal. This committee is the only one where some countries have “veto” power: United Kingdom, United States of America, France, China and Russia, the only members with a permanent seat at the Council. The Rwandan genocide, also known as the genocide against the Tutsi, was a genocidal mass slaughter of Tutsi in Rwanda by members of the Hutu majority government. An estimated 500,000 to 1,000,000 Rwandans were killed during the 100-day period from 7 April to mid-July 1994, constituting as many as 70% of the Tutsi population. Additionally, 30% of the Pygmy Batwa were killed. The genocide and widespread slaughter of Rwandans ended when the Tutsi-backed and heavily armed Rwandan Patriotic Front (RPF) led by Paul Kagame took control of the country. An estimated 2,000,000 Rwandans, mostly Hutus, were displaced and became refugees. During these events and in the aftermath, the United Nations (UN) and countries including the United States, the United Kingdom, and Belgium were criticized for their inaction and failure to strengthen the force and mandate of the UN Assistance Mission for Rwanda (UNAMIR) peacekeepers. Other observers criticized the government of France for alleged support of the Hutu government after the genocide had begun. Topic: the Rwandan genocide
