Topic? This year’s crisis simulation will revolve around current developments in South-East Asia and will primarily focus on the current stand-off between North Korea and the international community over its nuclear program. Delegates will be tasked with bringing this standoff to a conclusion whilst (hopefully) avoiding all-out nuclear conflict between the interested parties. In addition to this, the crisis will also have a second dimension involving the conflicting territorial claims in the South China Sea. Resolving the first crisis will require states with conflicting views on the future of South China Sea to cooperate with each other providing a unique challenge for those participating in the crisis. This year’s crisis impromises to be a tense, dynamic, and high-tempo second edition of the TICS project.
