This year, GSMUN XXII is re-introducing CORE committees to our general assemblies.  

 

GSMUNXXII will have CORE committees for a majority of the general assemblies. While the CORE committees will operate under normal parliamentary procedure, there will be a fast-paced Head Delegate committee that will interact with each of the CORE committees in a unique way. For more information, click here.

 

All CORE Commitees are double delegations. Head Delegate and National Assembly of Venezuela are NOT double delegations.
