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


Matthew Leung | Director

A junior at St. George’s School, Matthew is beyond ecstatic to serve as Director of the Arab League in CAHSMUN 2020. Captivated with deep passion in Model United Nations, Matthew had participated and staffed in various hotel and day conferences throughout these two years, experiencing many types of committees. 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. Matthew also expresses interest in attempting a new hobby, listening to music and essentially, being a sleep-deprived adolescent. Matthew sincerely hopes the Arab League will become a phenomenal experience for delegates and the staff team.


Raechel Kitamura | Chair

Currently a Senior studying at Richmond Christian Secondary School, Raechel Kitamura is beyond thrilled to serve as chair for the Arab League at the 2020 iteration of CAHSMUN. After attending her very first Model UN conference, Raechel has become captivated by the world of fast-paced debate, heated discussion, and diplomacy. Model UN has pushed Raechel to not only meet amazing new people but develop a passion for public speaking and international relations. Outside of MUN, Raechel can be spotted playing with her dog, reorganizing her playlists, and drinking unhealthy amounts of coffee and other caffeinated beverages. Raechel is ecstatic to meet all those who are attending and wishes delegates a weekend of fruitful debate.



Arella Yang | Chair

Entering her final year of high school as well as her MUN career at Crofton House School, Arella is absolutely thrilled to be serving as the Chair of the Arab League at CAHSMUN 2020. Since joining the MUN club in Grade 8 and attending her first-ever MUN conference, Arella has encountered plenty of amazing new people and gone through multiple new experiences through the fascinating world that is Model United Nations. She hopes that the Arab League at CAHSMUN 2020 allows new and experienced delegates alike those same opportunities. In her free time, Arella enjoys obsessing over one KPOP idol, in particular, waking up from naps in the middle of the night, and trying to convince herself to not make another unnecessary purchase. She looks forward to meeting all the delegates at CAHSMUN 2020 and witnessing firsthand the riveting and dynamic debate they will be engaging in.
