Ad-hoc Joint Crisis Committee


A Joint Crisis Committee usually comprises of two groups of delegates/representatives in separate rooms, debating the same, perpetual crisis. Typically these factions have opposing positions in the crisis and either try to dominate the other side or seek common ground. As a rule, there are no boundaries to a faction’s course of action, besides having to remain realistic. The crisis is presented to the delegates, who can react to it in the form of directives, short one-clause resolutions. These directives influence the outplay of the scenario.


In this JCC there are two blocs or so to speak alliances, NATO and The Warsaw Pact Regarding NATO: The NATO Alliance comprises of numerous democratic nations of both North America and Western Europe, among those are 3 of the 4 Nuclear Powers and Victors of the great war: Great Britain, France and the United States. The Alliance features some of the world's most modern armed forces and has repeatedly bumped heads with the Soviet sphere of influence. Following the Truman Doctrine the Alliances strongest member, the US has taken it upon themselves to limit Soviet/Communist influence wherever possible, by any means necessary.


Regarding the Warsaw Pact: The Warsaw Pact comprising of eight nations in Eastern Europe (Albania, Bulgaria, Czechoslovakia, East Germany, Hungary, Poland, Romania, and the USSR) most being communist satellite regimes of the USSR, follows the Brezhnev Doctrine, of using force when necessary to defend itself and to secure communist reign of its members. But recently, following the Sino-Soviet and Soviet-Albanian split, Albania has withheld support. The Pact, backed up with Soviet nuclear weapons has the main objective of securing the communist regimes in its member states and limit the west’s influence.
