“The greatest victory is that which requires no battle.”
― Sun Tzu, The Art of War
The world is going through a tumultuous phase. Reminiscent of the early 20th century,
international conflicts only seem to be spreading, each inextricably linked with the other. Political
leaders across the world are dictators and tyrants all but in name, and humanitarian crises are
taking lives indiscriminately across the globe. Ideological clashes, both economic and religious
are cutting across countries and continents, leaving behind the ruins of devastated families and
barren lands. In an environment where conflict and capitalising on the conflicts seem to be the
only truths, diplomacy proves to be an effective mitigator in this global turmoil.
MUNs replicate the idea and essence that make the United Nations an
international stage for statesmanship and make it accessible to the future representatives of our
states. It is my belief that to bring about a change in the global climate of antipathy and
confrontation, we must focus not at the problem itself but at those that breed it: people. It is
imperative that we bring a change in how the younger generations tackle issues, and to ensure
that it is carried out in a responsible and educated manner.
At SBSMUN, we strive to bring about at least a fraction of this change in the minds of the
delegates that walk through our doors. Through our conference, we will attempt to inculcate a
sense of empathy for the victims of the issues we discuss and help shape the ability to
collaborate and cooperate with individuals holding diametrically opposite opinions. It is my hope,
that all of you will be able to gain something from this conference.
Our Secretariat consists of individuals whose goal is to create an environment where you can
debate and deliberate freely, and embrace the philosophy of international dialogue. We warmly
welcome all the delegates, taking part in the AIPPM, UNSC, WEF and SPECPOL to the ICJ and
Crisis Committee and encourage you to make the most of the stimulating agendas placed before
Lastly and most importantly, we hope that you enjoy your experience at SBSMUN2019!

With the decline of media integrity in the modern world, it falls upon the journalists, cartoonists and photographers to uphold the traditional ideals of ethical journalism.
