WELCOME TO DUMUNC 2017

JCC China

The world, 2050 AD. The once dominant global superpower, the United States of America, is no longer a world player, following the cataclysmic eruption of the Yellowstone supervolcano in 2020. Every nation around the planet was affected, both by the eruption and the sudden change in power dynamics. Now, thirty years later, a new world order has emerged, one in which Russia, the European Union, and China compete for world domination. Each has their enemies and allies, their struggles and triumphs. Who will prevail in this game of diplomacy and battle at the end of DUMUNC?


Background Guide


Chair: Rishi Tripathy


Hey guys! I'm Rishi, a freshman from Princeton, NJ studying Biomedical Engineering. I've been doing Model UN for more of my life than I probably should have; regardless, I'm excited to see what you guys have in store for DUMUNC! In my free time, I love to play basketball, listen to music, and generally have a good time relaxing with my friends. Two points of advice: 1) If you can beat me hooping 1-on-1, your chances of winning the committee are probably higher (just kidding! (Maybe)); 2) If you have any questions or concerns about the committee, feel free to hit me up at rt125@duke.edu. See y'all soon!
