Joint Crisis Committee



The Boxer Rebellion

The Boxer Rebellion, the Boxer Uprising, or the Yihetuan Movement, was a violent revolt against foreign occupation and influence that took place in China, from 1899 to 1901. Having initially begun as a group of martial masters and practitioners of boxing, hence the name Boxer Rebellion, the rebel ensemble centered on one main principle: the liberation of the people from imperialist intentions.

In November of 1897, two German missionaries were murdered in the Juye Incident. Consequently, Kaiser Wilhelm II commissioned Germany’s Imperial Navy Army squadron to occupy the Jiaozhou Bay of China, initiating the “scramble for concessions” where numerous foreign powers—Britain, France, Russia, and Japan—acquire and occupy China. Many of these foreign powers go on to declare war or use the threat of war to coerce China into signing trade deals and treaties that benefit only them.

The Joint Crisis Committee (JCC) is for those who want to partake in a Model UN experience like no other.

Just as stated by Newton’s third law, for every action within the JCC is an equal and opposite reaction. Comprised of two independent, yet interconnected subcommittees under an overarching crisis, the two blocs will compete to outmaneuver the other in advancing the crisis to their favour.

As a committee suggested for veterans of the Model UN world, delegates of JCC must employ creativity, diplomacy, and a dash of deception to settle upon a resolution that benefits their bloc, or, more importantly, themselves.

At PacificMUN, the JCC focuses on dealing with a specific historical, fictional, or futuristic event. Filled with fast-paced debate, unexpected updates, and surprising outcomes, delegates will learn to think on their feet, explore interactions between blocs, and immerse themselves within riveting discussion like never before.
