The theme of this year's WawMun conference was "Problems faced by Refugees and Migrants". Therefore all of the committees had this central theme to discuss and debate.
Our first session was on Friday. David, John and I were in the United Nations Women Committee on the topic of "Addressing the dangers faced by women migrants crossing the US-Mexico border." while Radu was in the Disarmament Committee on the topic of "Addressing measures to prevent instabilities in South Sudan with focus on disarmament". The goal of MUN is to create a peaceful Resolution to help solve these problems.
John was the delegate of Canada, David: Russia, Radu: Eritrea and me: China. Each of us had to represent our country's interests, even if they go against our own morals or political views. For example, I personally am against abortion, but China promotes it and therefore is not opposed to Mexican women migrants having abortions.
On Saturday, we had our second committee session. During this session we had something known as a Crisis Committee. This is where a random crisis occurs, and every committee works on a quick resolution. We had fun since most of our committees did not take it too seriously, for example, in my committee we transformed Canada into New Israel.
