International Court of Justice

Liberty. Sovereignty. Genocide. Over the course of the conference, the members of this body will be forced to find legal answers to these questions, while simultaneously addressing the moral and ethical problems that underlie them. Only the most skilled delegates will be able to reconcile the two. 

This session, the Secretary-General has tasked the ICJ with litigating two distinct cases:

Kenya  v.  Dem. Rep. of the Congo

South Sudan  v.  Sudan

The ICJ is our flagship General Assembly and is geared for ambitious delegates who wish to take their MUN experience to a new level. We invite experienced delegates to take on the ICJ's challenges. 

To be eligible for individual awards, delegates in GA committees are required to submit a position paper. Each delegate should submit a one-page paper, single spaced, to their chair via email by 11:59 pm on November 24th, 2016. The delegate with the best research will also receive the Position Paper Award. For a sample paper, please click here
