However, Colombia still faces grave difficulties within the country. This correlation is found in Syria, among other fractured societies, which has an astounding 6.
The International Bazaar at our college-level Model UN conference in Boston was an incredible opportunity to interact with students from around the world. This is what makes MUN so special - it truly has opened my eyes to different cultures and places from around the world.
Advice for new delegates: I truly believe that each person has something new, valid, and important to contribute, especially on a topic as complex as labor rights.
If you have any concerns at any time, please reach out to me! The building, which housed five different garment factories, collapsed just hours after employees complained that cracks had formed in its walls - and after their bosses refused to allow them to leave the building.
In the days that followed the collapse, rescue workers converged on the scene, pulling thousands of survivors from the wreckage. The final death toll would be over 1, people. In the aftermath of Rana Plaza, a global conversation began on how to better protect workers in South Asian garment factories.
These factories sustain a multibillion dollar industry and manufacture many of the clothes we wear everyday.
Their workers are underpaid, overworked, and unprotected.

Through my experiences, I have come to value Model UN as a unique educational opportunity where delegates can not only gain a greater understanding for current global issues but also a deeper appreciation for the spirit of diplomacy and cooperation.

Climate change is one of the greatest forces currently shaping and changing our world, and moreover, is incredibly pressing in the degree to which international cooperation bridging the gap between developed and developing countries must occur to address the issue, despite the disproportionate impact of climate change on different geographic regions of the world.
To me, this is the crux of why I am so excited to direct at HMUN India—to promote the exposure and commitment to ideals of diplomacy while tackling an issue that is so pertinent to India and developing countries in general, but which also requires great collective action to overcome.
I am so excited to hear what creative, insightful, concrete solutions will emerge from committee! Finally, as Director, I am here to serve you—please do not hesitate to reach out and email me about the committee topic or anything else of interest!UN News produces daily news content in Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Kiswahili, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish, and weekly programmes in Hindi, Urdu and Bangla.

Hellenistic Monarchs down to the Roman Empire. The Hellenistic Age suffers from some of the same disabilities as Late Antiquity, i.e.
it doesn't measure up to the brilliance of the Golden Age of Greece and of late Republican and early Imperial Rome.
Foreword. Today, the refugee determination system is at a crossroads. Once again it is dealing with a surge in claims that it is ill-equipped to manage, running the risk of creating a large backlog that, if not tackled promptly, may take years to bring to final resolution.
The seven committees in the Economic and Social Council and Regional Bodies at HMUN India include the medium-sized councils, commissions, and programmes of the UN, which tackle issues of development, human rights, culture, economics, and trade.
