It is such an exquisite honour for me to welcome you all as the Secretary-General of Model United Nations Istanbul Conference 2017.I’m a proud member of Yeditepe Model United Nations club for the last three years and I’m grateful that I’ve learned so much from the people who had glorified the former editions of MUNIST. Inspired by the legacy of eight years, the family meets again where the continents meet.
Aroused by the passion to rewrite history, influence the future and bring solutions to today’s problems of security, justice, human rights, and development, the MUNIST 2017 will simulate twelve committees, composed of crisis cabinets, special bodies and intergovernmental organizations. This year, we have challenged ourselves to excel the academic and organizational quality and we dare you to join us in this journey.
We are tremendously thrilled to present you the committees of MUNIST 2017. The Joint Crisis Cabinet: Russo Japanese War will rewind to 1904 and let you rewrite the challenge of East by West.The Joint Crisis Cabinet: United States of America Prohibition of 1927 will give you a chance to choose your side, to fight against the most vigorous crime lord or to join the Chicago Outfit. Cabinet of Golda Meir will show you the dark side of the Arab-Israeli conflict and the consequently, the Cold War between the Great Powers. The experts of the United Nations Expert Panel on Sokovia will bring legislation to limit the power of the enhanced individuals to protect mankind from another disaster.The Organization for African Unity will decide on the fate of the Apartheid regime, while Historical General Assembly will negotiate to preserve Earth. Council of European Union will decide on the next steps of EU by making policies related to foreign affairs and security.

In this century one of the most popular words is 'Networking', in other words networking is the new black. According to Stanley Milgram's 'Six Degrees of Separation Theory', you can reach the person you want to contact on average six steps (via six people). The most important thing about the theory is finding true people to reach to person you want to contact. Then, you can communicate with Donald Trump, Queen Elizabeth or Travis Fimmel. As MUNIST Team, we believe to power of networking and we are excited to meet you at MUNIST'17. Who knows, maybe we join our forces and we can reach to Rihanna or Warren Buffett.
