With a theme of “Go Beyond-Tomorrow's Leaders”, the Workshops and Seminars Program of WorldMUN 2012 Vancouver Conference aims to inspire the delegates as leaders of tomorrow by providing those brightest young minds with the opportunities to engage in dialogue with leading scholars, politicians, diplomats and business leaders. We plan on fostering these meaningful discussions through an additional series of workshops and seminars touching the most critical themes and topics, as we believe tomorrow’s leaders have to be equipped with focused views based on an insightful grasp of major developments of our time.
Session Five: International instability (IDP, Drug Economies, Conflict Regions, Human Security, Third Parties)
With the collapse of old regimes, decreasing confidence in the global market, new spheres of influence and the ever-increasing number of conflict zones, the world today is hard to understand. Through the turmoil, it is inevitable to pause and examine the impact such instability has on the individual. The responsibility of ‘governance’ is no longer rested in the hands of governments. It seems that international organizations, multinational corporations, and non-governmental organizations now possess the resources and means to take more active roles to ensure that the individual is protected. What should their roles encompass? How will the media interact with these actors in an exercise of power-sharing? How will this affect the micro-relationships within conflict regions or societies? This panel aims to explore what to do with those left behind and why some regions or places are remain more vulnerable than others.
