Woodhouse debates in Model United Nations 2012 (Round 2)
Round two of Woodhousian diplomacy in the Model United Nations: given hardly any time to rest on their laurels following their success in the previous Model United Nations in Birmingham, our peace pursuing envoys were thrown head first into yet another conference threatening to bring forth even more controversy, debate and contest.
Once again, our dedicated diplomats met with delegates from across the country, and were put to the test as they this time represented two major world superpowers: the United States of America and The People’s Republic of China, as well as the less contentious Togo. Attempting to resolve some of the world’s most complex, disputed and enduring struggles, ranging from the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, to the defamation of religion, to the currently anarchic state of affairs in Somalia, no stone went unturned as the USA, China and Togo each addressed the issues with their own solutions, gallantly defending their positions when attacked and valiantly fighting for their respective interests. And once again, a sophisticated knack for international diplomacy was exhibited, as our envoys’ persuasive speaking, research and peacekeeping skills earned us honourable mentions in every committee, and the USA the award of Best Overall Delegation!
