Founded at the height of the Cold War, the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) is an opportunity for governments who have been traditionally oppressed by larger powers to unite together for the betterment of their people. Created as a coalition of third world nations, NAM members rejected the bipolar world after World War II and sought to assist all the countries whose policies favour self-determination.
As an organization, NAM was officially established in 1961 to combat imperialistic exploitation of impoverished countries. Since then, NAM has been a leading force in the struggle of decolonization in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. As of 2012, NAM consists of 120 member states and 15 observer nations, most of which are countries with developing economies. Whether it has been defending the sovereign rights of states or handling a panoply of diverse global issues, the Non-Aligned Movement has been crucial in protecting the political and economic interest of rising nations.
NAM is a committee suited for experienced delegates, but is open to delegates of all experience levels wishing to challenge their capacity as delegates. Position papers are strongly recommended for this committee, but are mandatory for delegates to be considered for awards. Please read about CAHSMUN’s Position Paper policy, which can be found under the list of committees on the “Committees” page.
Questions, inquiries, and position papers for this committee can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
BACKGROUNDERS WILL BE AVAILABLE SHORTLY!
David Ni | Director
Ever since his younger and more vulnerable years, David has been entrenched in the cryptic and esoteric subject that is politics; thus, MUN naturally became an opportunity to quench his thirst for glory on the bureaucratic battlefield. During the small gaps of time between school and studio, David prefers to enjoy the finer things in life such as staying up late to binge a profound audiobook, entering a meditative sketching trance, or simply pondering the ephemeral wonders of life. When he is not indulging on matters that others may label as a "trivial," David can be found playing the flute, learning foreign languages, or slaving away trying to make an art portfolio. David looks forward to being the Director for the Non-Aligned Movement.
