Want to what it’s like to prepare a resolution for a committee?

Here’s an example from a previous mini-MUN hosted by the UNIR society!

Conflict in Yemen

Briefing

The modern-day Republic of Yemen was founded in 1990, the merger of North Yemen (officially the Yemen Arab Republic) and South Yemen (officially the People’s Democratic Republic of Yemen). The north became a republic in 1962; the south was controlled until 1967 by the British, who valued it for the port of Aden, and then adopted a Communist government that lasted for two decades.

In 2014 Yemen became a federation of six regions, undertook operations against al-Qaeda, saw President Hadi fire his cabinet and Houthi rebels start to take control of the area starting in the capital of Sanaa, then the Red Sea city of Hudeida.

Since the formation of a new Yemeni government in late 2014, the beginning of violent clashes between government forces and Houthi rebels saw the United Nations Security Council on February 16th denounce the Houthi actions and demand that they negotiate a power sharing agreement under Gulf Council patronage. This didn’t occur.

Last month ISIS carried out its first major attacks in the country adding a new element to the conflict and a Saudi-led coalition entered the fray brining this conflict into a new level of heightened violent conflict.
