GROUP: Continuous Crisis

Email Committee Chair

Coups and coronations and conflicts, oh my! Between the exciting conspiracy to overthrow her husband Peter III and a number of new Enlightenment inventions and ideas, Catherine the Great’s reign of the Russian Empire was anything but dull. Despite being German by birth, historically Catherine instituted many reforms as a Russian nationalist, but on this committee, the story is up to you to decide! Join us at MUNUC for a weekend of being a part of her team of friends and advisers, complete with loads of interesting crises, contentious debate, and maybe even some screaming in Russian.
