Hello, delegates! Welcome to KINGMUN 2020 and the Cabinet of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, circa 1979, under the leadership of Margaret Thatcher. The Cabinet is a specialized committee of a nation’s top leaders, convened for the purpose of solving a specific problem. Together, underneath a set of specialized set of Rules of Procedure, the committee will work to de-escalate and resolve conflict on the island of Ireland between Protestant Unionists and Catholic Republican Separatists. Since the early days of the 20th century, Ireland has been in turmoil between these two groups, which has only escalated since the fractioning of the Irish Republican Army (IRA) into the Provisional IRA (PIRA), the Official IRA (OIRA), and the Irish National Liberation Army (INLA). In 1979, the United Kingdom elected its first female prime minister; now lead by Margaret Thatcher, Great Britain and Northern Ireland face the widest set of problems with such a conflict since its inception. In order to prevent conflict from spiraling further, delegates must be cunning, inventive, and wary, and should protect the sanctity of the greatest kingdom to ever rule the world.
Position Papers are now due on May 24th, 2020 at 11:59 PM PST. Further questions or extension requests may be directed to the dais at firstname.lastname@example.org.
