CRISIS MODENA.jpg

JCC: War of the bucket, italy 1325: Modena

For hundreds of years the Modena and Bologna villages in northern Italy have fought amongst one another. The Modena people lay their loyalty to the Holy Roman Empire, where the Bolognese praise the Pope. Religion, territory, integrity and loyalty run deep throughout the veins of these two groups and play major roles in the high tense atmosphere. As the summer of 1325 is coming to a close, some Modena soldiers sneak into the Bologna city center and steal a vital centerpiece to the town: a wooden bucket. Although there are plenty of buckets in town and this one could be physically replaced - this sparks a war of the ages that was not on anyone’s bucket list for their summer. Bologna has just declared war on your village and now is the time to end this rivalry for good.

CRISIS AD HOC.jpg

Ad Hoc

The Ad Hoc Committee of the Secretary General is a unique crisis committee tailored to advanced delegates eager to debate and face surprises. As is the custom for an Ad Hoc Committee, the topic will not be revealed in full until moments before the conference starts. As such, while general preparation must still be done leading up to the conference in order to develop research, writing, and speaking skills, Ad Hoc delegates will have to think on their feet in order to react quickly and effectively to sudden crises they have had minimal time to anticipate. Though preparation is extremely necessary, it takes a completely different form in this committee.

CRISIS FOX 2.jpg

Fox News Network 2015

The number one most watched News channel now has to figure out its own story. Rupert Murdoch and Roger Ailes created the broadcasting company Fox News from several small acquisitions in 1996, in order to compete with the market-dominating CNN. Unlike the other competitors, FOX news opinion hosts, such as Sean Hannity, promoted more conservative viewpoints at a time when conservatives felt they held little power. Fast-forward and Fox News has taken over as the top news channel but that has not come without controversial positions, platforms, and ethics. Now, in 2015 with a crucial election approaching, Fox News has a new question to solve – how to deal with new presidential candidate named Donald Trump.
