NYC Committees, Topics & Background Guides

NYC Conference Committees, Topics & Background Guides

Click on the topic names to read and/or download the Background Guides.

You only need to download Background Guides for the topics addressed to your committee(s). If you are unsure of which committee(s) your country will be sitting on, please refer to the Conference Matrix for your grade level.

PLEASE NOTE!

DISEC 1 and DISEC 2 have different sets of topics, they are not duplicate committee sessions. They each have two distinct focuses and therefore it is crucial you download the correct corresponding Background Guides. This is separate from SOCHUM and ECOFIN which are duplicate committees.
