CGS will be represented at this year’s The Hague International Model UN Conference by two students who have been selected to serve as Student Officers.
Our IB Diploma Year 2 student Areti Moustaki will serve as the Main Chair in the Special Political & Decolonization committee (GA4), whose agenda has a broad scope usually including the resolution of some specific case of territorial dispute related to decolonisation, the reconsideration of the nature of peacekeeping and/or special political missions and other possible diplomatic and political challenges that are in some way connected to decolonisation.. This year’s committee will address the following issues:
- The question of Kosovo
- The question of territorial sovereignty in Antarctica
- The question of Transnistria
Our IB Diploma Year 1 student Efi Charalampopoulou has been selected to serve as a Deputy President of the Human Rights Commission (sub-commission 2), the scope of which focuses purely on human rights violation issues and, by extension, the promotion and protection of human rights. The three issues to be addressed by the committee are:
- Measures to further develop cross-border cooperation for the assistance of migrants and asylum-seekers
- Protecting journalists and media workers’ freedom of expression in time of war
- Protecting the rights of LGBT+ people
The CGS community would like to wish both Areti and Efi all its best for the conference which is to be held in-person from 23rd to 26th January, 2023.
