International Federation of Association Football (FIFA)
The Federation of Association Football (FIFA) is an organization that serves as the international governing body of association football. It is responsible for arranging international tournaments around the world and develops the game of football internationally. FIFA has 191 member nations and is the largest sports governing body in the world. The controversy surrounding FIFA has been growing since the decision to host the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. More recently, FIFA has been facing allegations of corruption and fourteen high-ranking FIFA officials were indicted after an investigation by the FBI. In the midst of this controversy, FIFA needs to continue preparing for the 2018 World Cup in Russia, and institute reform to prevent abuse of power.
Topic A: Corruption and the 2016 Extraordinary Congress (Presidential Election)
Topic B: Qatar 2022 World Cup
Letter from the Chair
Dear Esteemed Delegates:
Welcome to JHUMUNC XXII! My name is Varun Naga and I will be your chair for the International Federation of Association Football (FIFA) committee. I am really looking forward to meeting all of you and working with you to discuss issues surrounding the international football community in 2016.
I am a rising junior at Hopkins majoring in Biomedical Engineering and Applied Math and Statistics. I am from Orlando, FL, and I have been involved in MUN for about 6 years now. I regularly attended conferences in high school and enjoyed participating in debate. This is my second year at JHUMUNC. I was a Dais on the Historical DISEC for JHUMUNC XXI and served as a chair for the European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST) at JHUMUNC XXII. I like to watch and play football (soccer) in my spare time, and I am really looking forward to discussing the politics behind the sport.
I am looking forward to hearing of your unique perspectives on the issues we discuss. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or concerns that you may have about the committee! Our Dais and staff cannot wait to meet you at the conference!
Chair, International Federation of Association Football (FIFA)
