Joint Cabinet Crisis (JCC) – Advanced Committee
Crisis: The First Crusade
Your Crisis Directors
Kiwan started dabbling with MUN back when he was in college; as a respite from the textbook rigour of A-Levels. With enthusiasm, he started his own MUN society in his college, as the MUN scene exploded in his native Malaysia. Cutting his teeth in crisis the first time he did MUN, he is a veteran of the genre – having directed and staffed various crises throughout the UK in his experience.
Kiwan reads Mechanical Engineering at the University of Bristol. He enjoys the infamous English weather, reading Tolkien whilst listening to Gregorian chants, and shouting ‘DEUS VULT!’ whenever he can!
Sultan looks forward to directing one of OxIMUN’s best crises yet and is eager to meet you should you run into him at the conference!
Your Crisis Chairs
I’m currently studying history at the University of East Anglia, focusing on 19th century European diplomacy. This is my third year of involvement with Model United Nations and it is my second time chairing a Historical Crisis Cabinet. Crises offer delegations a fantastic opportunity to think as creatively as possible, while delving into the detail of a historical setting. It is a great honour to be a part of the OxIMUN team, having attended the conference last year as a delegate, I cannot wait for this year’s installment.
Martin is a third year History and Politics student at the University of York, who has participated in several conferences in the past year, immediately developing a love for crisis. Apart from MUN, Martin enjoys running, reading about modern history, and occasionally writing about films in York’s student newspaper. He also likes memes and occasionally complains about the quality of British bread.
As chair of the Byzantine cabinet, Martin will do everything to consolidate and extend the Empire’s power in the region and beyond. He looks forward to seeing delegates develop crazy and creative strategies, and to actively shape the world they will encounter in this crisis. Martin is looking forward to meet all of you in Oxford and hopes you will have a great time.
Studying History BA at the University of Nottingham, Atakan Yurdakul is a first-year international student coming from the lovely coasts of the Republic of Turkey. Organising, directing and chairing various types of crisis committees all around the world, he is dedicated to put his passion for history and experience in MUNs to a good use as the chair of Seljuk Turks cabinet in OxIMUN’18.
Atakan is proud of his tie & socks and historical newspapers collection and enjoys reading and travelling in his free times. Fairly excited about his role, he is eager to meet you all in October.
