On behalf of the staff of the Global Intelligence Council, it is my privilege to welcome you to MUNUM XXXI. My name is Vineet Chandra, and I am a rising senior here at the University of Michigan – Ann Arbor in the Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy. I am also pursuing a minor in Business Administration at the Stephen M. Ross School of Business. Outside of school and MUNUM, I am also the Editor-in-Chief of the Michigan Journal of International Affairs. My Co-Director and I also founded Blue Model United Nations, Michigan’s competitive Model United Nations team. My staff and I are incredibly excited to welcome you to campus in January, and are hard at work preparing for your arrival.
The Global Intelligence Council attempts to bring crisis elements to a wider audience than ever before imagined at MUNUM or anywhere else. Delegates will represent analysts with specific specialties at a meeting of several major intelligence agencies. On this occasion, these agencies will work together on human trafficking and whatever else they may happen to stumble upon. By assigning delegates individual characters in a world defined by inter-agency politics, we hope to balance the collaboration of a General Assembly type committee with the intensity of a pure Crisis one. Participants should expect a healthy mix of detailed policy discussions in addition to thrilling twists at every turn. Delegates who are interested in the challenge of piecing together a broader puzzle are well-suited for this committee.
If you have any questions at all before January, please do not hesitate to reach out to anyone on our staff. We would be more than happy to assist you in any way we can. I look forward to meeting you all soon!
Co-Director, Global Intelligence Council
