It is the 12th of September 2001, the day after two by Al-Qaeda hijacked planes flew into the World Trade Center in New York. US President George W. Bush has convened his cabinet in order to discuss further actions following this attack.
In this crisis, we will dive into the world of foreign affairs and diplomacy as we explore the cause and the legacy of the 9/11 attacks. You will have a chance to step into the shoes of prominent political figures in the early 2000s and decide the course of American foreign policies. Will you give into chaos or overcome the fear and unpredictability of terror? The choice is yours to make during this conference, delegates. It is up to you to undertake whatever action that you desire, bearing in mind the policy of your character.
About a crisis committee: a crisis committee is a variation on a Model UN simulation. It has less (and at times no) rules. You are appointed a character which can take actions and has personal resources. The action you take have consequences and are communicated with a backroom staff who are responding to your actions. Creativity, realism and roleplay are rewarded.
