The Model United Nations Security Council will work on a fictional crisis, based on real-life events in Afghanistan. The crisis will imagine a breakdown of governing promises by the Taliban administration in Afghanistan and toward young women, schools, and universities. The UNSC will have to debate the proper response to the crisis and what level of international intervention is appropriate.
