Established in Cairo on March 22, 1945, the Arab League was formed. The League has currently 22 members, with the collective main goal to “draw closer the relations between member States and coordinate collaboration between them, to safeguard their independence and sovereignty, and to consider in a general way the affairs and interests of the Arab countries.” The Arab League has served as a channel for Arab states to discuss and coordinate policy positions, resolve disputes, and limit current and potential conflicts.
The Arab League is a Regional Body designed to incite debate for more experienced delegates, but is open to all that are looking for a challenge. Positions papers, although not mandatory, are required for delegates who seek to be considered for an award during the conference. For more information, please read about CAHSMUN’s Position Paper Policy, which can be found under the list of committees on the “Committees” page.
All questions and position papers can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.

As Director of the Arab League, Matthew hopes to create an informative overview for all delegates, aiding them to be knowledgeable about the topics so to make their experience entertaining and enjoyable. Outside of Model UN, Matthew is also an avid musician, playing clarinet and saxophone in various orchestras.
