My name is Dinan Alasad, I am a Year 13 KICS student and I am this year’s Secretary-General. My job includes heading the Secretariat, overseeing conference planning and various other logistics.
The theme for this year is “Sovereignty vs. Humanitarianism”. The theme questions when it is necessary for the need for humanitarianism to transcend the sovereignty of nations creating, preserving or even merely not stepping in to prevent these violations of human rights. I feel that this theme is broad enough to encompass most of the issues in the world currently yet narrow enough to engage delegates and inspire critical thinking.
I hope that this conference is a learning opportunity for all those involved and I am already quite impressed with the delegates’ efforts in the ECA sessions.
Looking forward to a vibrant conference.
