This year you will be guided by Luisa Santos Pereira as your chair and Nabiyah Bashir as your co-chair. It is with great honor that we will be leading all of you in this conference and it is with great enthusiasm that we welcome all of you into this committee! We will always be available whenever help is needed, however, we highly encourage all of you to put great effort into researching your topics because, truth be told, you will the ones responsible for the success of our committee. Obviously, if there are any questions that cannot be answered through your research, do not hesitate before contacting any of us. The refugee issue requires thoughtful solutions and it is a truly intricate topic since it involves both immediate measures and at the same time measures that will have long-term and substantial effects on the lives of people who live in dire conditions. The three topics to be adressed in the UNHCR are: Palestinians' Right of Return, Internally Displaced Congolese and the Refugee Situation in Darfur.
We hope you are as excited as we are to be participating in this committee and we look forward to working with each and every one of you!
Luisa Santos Pereira and Nabiyah Bashir
