Quadrumvirate: Pacific Theater of the Cold War – USSR
Delegates will be working towards building stability in an inherently unstable point of history. With the world’s eyes watching, our committee will work towards pushing the boundaries of the USSR as far as possible, spreading our regime and doctrine across the global landscape. There is no half-heartedness here. Those who will not be convinced will be conquered. Together, comrades, we will navigate these turbulent political currents and propagate our sovereign power.
Topic A: Preparing the USSR against international resistance to the communist movement
Topic B: Strengthening relations with Asian nations and establishing Communist dominance.
Background Guide: Now Available!
Letter from the Chair
Welcome to JHUMUNC 2018! This conference is going to be filled to the brim with excitement, tension, and suspense. We have a great setting this year: the tumultuous Pacific Theatre of the Cold War. I can’t wait to see all the great debate, excitement, and passion you guys will bring to committee.
A little background information about me first. My name is Faris Omair, I’m from Saudi Arabia but I spent the majority of my life in Dubai, UAE. My first experiences in MUN were in my high-school’s conference. I moved up the ranks from an admin staff, to delegate, and eventually chair! This is my first time chairing a specialized committee, but I have plenty of experience with MUN leadership and chairing. In JHUMUNC 2017 I served as a crisis staff for JCC so I know the ins and outs of how specialized work.
At Hopkins I’m a Sophomore majoring in Economics with three minors in Financial Economics, Accounting & Financial Management, and Entrepreneurship & Management. I spend my free time in the gym, playing video games, and hanging out with the brothers in my Business Fraternity. My post-college plans are hazy, but I’d like to work in Asset Management before eventually owning my own business!
If you have any hesitation about being in a Quadrumvirate/Specialized committee, let me reassure you. Specialized committees are the most fun you could have in JHUMUNC, especially in Quad. There’s never a dull moment with crises and the small size of the committees allows for a lot of teamwork and collaborations with fellow delegates.
For any questions or concerns about JHUMUNC, Hopkins, or anything really, feel free to reach out to me.
Very excited to meet everyone and I can’t wait to make JHUMUNC 2018 the best conference yet!
