Joint Cabinet Crisis


The Joint Cabinet Crisis (JCC) is an excellent opportunity to take part in a more dynamic, fast-paced, and challenging debate environment. Two separate working groups will be formed, to be decided at a later date. Each group will be presented with a series of interrelated crises pertaining to current events. The cabinets must work to solve the contentions between them and further their national interests through both official means of communication and bi-lateral debate, as well as secret notes passed from committee to committee via the Crisis Staff. Communiqués, press releases, directives, and resolutions, moderated by conference staff, will serve as the JCC’s official documented progress towards resolution of the debates.

The JCC convenes at the Southeast RegionalSouthwest, Northeast Regional, and National University MALs. Every delegate assigned to the JCC represents a prominent figurehead in one of two government cabinets.
