What are Crisis Committees?

Crisis committees simulate rapid-responses to urgent issues by smaller bodies like cabinets, campaigns, corporate boards, and more.

  • Delegates represent individuals rather than countries. Instead of representing the entire nation of Uzbekistan on the World Health Organization, a delegate may be representing Uzbekistan’s Chief of the Air Force on a simulated Cabinet of Uzbekistan from 1991.
  • Delegates pass multiple directives and write crisis notes. Instead of writing a single resolution, crisis delegates pass shorter directives on many issues. Delegates advance their personal agenda by writing crisis notes. Crisis committees are typically the smallest, with about 25 delegates. Ex. Catherine the Great's Advisors, 1762
