1 Question about scope of committee questions. on Wed Jan 27, 2010 10:04 am

Hi all!

We're very much looking forward to coming to the MUN. Thanks BISS for all your work.

I have a quick question about the possible scope of committee questions. Some of our students have wondered if their resolutions have to be completely bounded by the constraints of the question. For example, one committee question is about trade sanctions again countries USING child labour. One of my students rightly pointed out that perhaps countries INVESTING in countries that use child labour should also be targeted in the resolution. What do you think? Can we 'bend' the questions if it's relevant?

I think so. If the goal is to combat child labour then we need to be free to entertain other possibilities, either along with or in place of sanctions. That's my take, anyway. My only concern would be that the wider scope would be a bit harder to tackle on the truncated timetable.

I think that's fine. We will be choosing resolutions to be discussed at the conference once everyone has finished them. We will carry out pre-conference discussions on the forum.

5 Scope of debates on Tue Feb 09, 2010 8:41 pm

It's possible that some delegates are likely to explore the topics from a broader point of view. I think that so long as the core issue is addressed and acts as the guideline, then there won't be much harm.
Simon, thank you for the compliments!
