About The Committees

AYMUN 2017 is proud to offer 9 committees and programs designed to stimulate and challenge delegates with substantive excellence in mind. For more committee-specific information, please visit each organ page.

General Assembly

With three committees of passionate delegates, dedicated directors, and overall substantive excellence, the General Assembly boasts some of the finest debate of the conference. Featuring issues that challenge and inspire the international community, the topics to be addressed in the GA will range from international security, to health policy and humanitarian aid. The GA will push delegates to rethink what has been previously accepted, to push their skills of negotiation and to ultimately balance international cooperation with their own national interests.


Economic and Social Council

The Economic and Social Council committeerepresents topic-specific to UN bodies. Virtually any issue in international relations can be addressed in the context of one of these committees, including environmental protection, international security, education, and many more. Delegates and staff alike can gain an understanding of these relevant issues through debate, eventually producing resolutions that propose real-world solutions. Experience intense crisis simulations, innovative applications of technology and incredibly substantive debate in an environment that encourages committee bonding and cooperation. This blend requires a type of delegate that can manage quick, articulate thinking, as well as broader strategies of long-term planning and cooperation.


Specialized Agencies

The Specialized Agencies is home to the most creative and imaginative committees of AYMUN 2017. With two committees, this year’s two highly substantive and interactive committees will push delegates to examine the intricacies of history and the pressing issues of our time. In each committee, delegates will have the opportunity to respond to crisis simulations, debate issues as they arise. The SA committees are some of the most fast-paced ones at conference, and due to the small size of the committees, each individual member has a critical role in advancing his or her own interests, fashioning meaningful debate, and crafting peaceful and innovative solutions.
