CHAPMUN PMUNC 2012

PMUNC could not have been more thrilling. We attended under our charter club, CHAPMUN, as the nation Estonia, and our committees were engaging:

  • Nicholas Emery, Head Delegate, Estonia, World Trade Organization (WTO)
    Topics of debate included Agricultural Products, especially Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs), and Intellectual Property including the balance of incentivizing pharmaceutical organizations to invest in research and development by earning a sufficient return through legal protections balanced against the need for inexpensive life-saving drugs in third-world countries.
  • Nathan Emery, Israel, International Olympics Committee (IOC)
    The committee debated the three proposed locations for the 2020 games ahead of the actual IOC decision as well as proposing changes to the Olympic Charter, the first principle of which is “Olympism is a philosophy of life, exalting and combining in a balanced whole the qualities of body, will and mind. Blending sport with culture and education, Olympism seeks to create a way of life based on the joy of effort, the educational value of good example, social responsibility and respect for universal fundamental ethical principles.”
  • Eva-Marie Quinones, Sudan, South Sudanese Cabinet
    This special committee represented members of the South Sudanese Cabinet about issues as they were deep in conflict with North Sudan. A special dynamic was added to the committee as the chair was a Princeton student from South Sudan and the committee was graced with a conference call with an actual South Sudan cabinet member.
