About Committee

The year was 1949. People of the World had just been freed from the mass destruction that the WWII brought. Recovery from the deep wounds of the war was not easy, both for people and their states. Moreover, the power balance of the world was being shared between two major actors that would be the locomotives of two primary blocs: The Western and The Eastern Bloc.
On 4 April 1949, the North Atlantic Treaty was signed by several North American and European states, establishing an intergovernmental military alliance which would be named NATO. Having been founded in the Early Cold War period, NATO has been the primary defense mechanism for its member states throughout the history. Politics and the names of the states of the World changed a lot in 68 years, but the aggressors never did.

In North Atlantic Treaty Organization committee, delegates will be handling the relations between NATO and Ukraine. In the shade of 2014 Euromaidan protests, delegates will face many challenges in protecting the NATO influence over the world politics. As the aggressive moves of Russia will be spicing up the regional dynamics, delegates will be deciding on one major question: Is it possible to change the recent history of Ukraine and NATO with today’s perspective, or not?
