African Union (AU) - Intermediate CommitteeComposed of 55 member states the African Union is a continental union which officially launched in 2002 to replace its predecessor the Organization of African Unity. Its main objective is to promote economic development via the cooperation of its African Member states and the respective cooperation of its citizens. Through all their discussions delegates will undoubtedly cover the ways they wish to adhere to and reform the goals of Agenda 2063, AU’s roadmap to sustainable development and economic prosperity for the next 50 years.

Joint Cabinet Crisis Unlike regular MUN Committees, the Joint Cabinet Crisis operates in a more fast paced and dynamic manner with each delegate representing a character within a historical time period rather than a nation. Previous crises editions at OxIMUN include the Italian Wars of 1498 and the First Crusade. JCC topics are extensive and of a more diverse nature - topics can be historical, security-based, or even economic. In OxIMUN, the JCC will feature three cabinets and will run akin to UK-style crises.
