The last day of URJCmun X edition was expected to be a relaxed session. However, all the delegates still willing to discuss, offer their proposals and even reach crucial agreements.
The debate continues, the countries talk about terrorism and global security matters, the visibility of this issue through social media as Tik Tok, the accusations to China of their concentration’s camps and the controversy about face covering in public places. They end up discussing about motorcycle helmets!
Two unmoderated caucus helped the delegations elaborate a quick draft resolution composed by eleven clauses. This working paper to fight against islamophobia is been voted by nominal vote. All the clauses are voted together except the points eight and eleven, which are voted in a different voting due to several reasons. An unanimity approves the first one. Nevertheless, the second one doesn’t pass: it has six votes in favor and five votes against. As a result of the decision of the representatives, the resolution is approved without the two clauses named previously.
Th debate is closed and it’s time for an informal session. A lot of interesting as well as funny gossips are read and some carnations with beautiful dedications on them are delivered. The formal awards were to: Australia with an honorable mention, China as the best delegate and Saudi Arabia is awarded as the best delegation. These prizes are well-deserved, although every representative made an outstanding work.
The HRC’s committee also gives jokingly awards such as the “ghost delegate” or the “best dressed”. Moreover, it’s been decided Russia is the most likely to start a war and Australia will probably become the United Nations General Secretary.
A lot of laughs and applauses take place, some other good-byes to all the amazing international delegates that came for all over Europe. And to conclude, the photographer takes some photos to have a memory of these marvelous four days. We will look at them and remember how lucky we were to be part of the Human Rights Council.
We are looking forward next URJC Model United Nations.
