The International Bazaar at our college-level Model UN conference in Boston was an incredible opportunity to interact with students from around the world. This is what makes MUN so special - it truly has opened my eyes to different cultures and places from around the world.
Advice for new delegates: I truly believe that each person has something new, valid, and important to contribute, especially on a topic as complex as labor rights. If you have any concerns at any time, please reach out to me!
The building, which housed five different garment factories, collapsed just hours after employees complained that cracks had formed in its walls - and after their bosses refused to allow them to leave the building.
In the days that followed the collapse, rescue workers converged on the scene, pulling thousands of survivors from the wreckage. The final death toll would be over 1, people. In the aftermath of Rana Plaza, a global conversation began on how to better protect workers in South Asian garment factories.
These factories sustain a multibillion dollar industry and manufacture many of the clothes we wear everyday. Their workers are underpaid, overworked, and unprotected.
And ninety percent of them are women. This committee will study how the women driving forward this incredibly important global industry can be protected and empowered, rather than oppressed and abused.
How can we responsibly audit a vast and convoluted network of suppliers? What are ways to improve working conditions? Should unions be allowed in factories, and if so, how should they operate?
To further pursue these interests, I am a research assistant for a professor in the Government Department, where I was able to contribute to a New York Times bestselling book he has just released on comparative politics and democratic breakdown.
In addition, I interned last year in the Evidence for Policy Design program at the Harvard Kennedy School, creating data sets on environmental clearance laws in India.
Through my experiences, I have come to value Model UN as a unique educational opportunity where delegates can not only gain a greater understanding for current global issues but also a deeper appreciation for the spirit of diplomacy and cooperation. Therefore, I am incredibly excited to explore my academic interests through the lens of Model UN by examining the impacts of climate change on agriculture.
Climate change is one of the greatest forces currently shaping and changing our world, and moreover, is incredibly pressing in the degree to which international cooperation bridging the gap between developed and developing countries must occur to address the issue, despite the disproportionate impact of climate change on different geographic regions of the world.
To me, this is the crux of why I am so excited to direct at HMUN India—to promote the exposure and commitment to ideals of diplomacy while tackling an issue that is so pertinent to India and developing countries in general, but which also requires great collective action to overcome.
I am so excited to hear what creative, insightful, concrete solutions will emerge from committee! Finally, as Director, I am here to serve you—please do not hesitate to reach out and email me about the committee topic or anything else of interest!
I cannot reiterate how much I am looking forward to meeting each and every one of you at conference this August. I truly hope you will have a transformative, educational experience while meeting inspiring new people.The question of genocide is never far from discussions of settler colonialism.
