The committee of choice was the United Nations General Assembly and the agenda was “Increasing crime leading to violence amongst citizens”. The committee began with the General Speakers list where were recognized a few delegates at a time. Session 1 was not anything different for the average bystander but for many and definitely for some delegates it was exciting as delegates spoke their mindful of the agenda while representing their own country. Being first-timers, they required constant guidance. A few students even raised points of correction against inaccurate or false speeches which was a surprise to the executive board. But other than that, their efforts to raise questions and comments were impressive. After breaking for lunch paperwork had to be rushed through. Then session 2 finally began. Many delegates failed to raise motions but finally, a delegate raised one in format and we finally entered a moderated caucus. Sub agenda is “increasing violence due to inequalities”. This was an interesting part of the whole session Delegates spoke out well in terms of national policies. Their knowledge of the subject was surprisingly good.
