JCC Chinese Revolution: communist party
Joint Crisis Committee: Chinese Revolution: Communist Party
Background guide available now. SBIMUN XIV will not be collecting position papers from delegates.
The year is 1927. The Warlord Era has ravaged China and the social, political, and economic stability once seen under the Qing Dynasty is a distant memory. Foreign invaders and domestic intrigues lie around every geopolitical corner. Two main factions have arisen: the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and Kuomintang (KMT). Can the fledgling communist party cause a stir in this civil conflict and establish a new vision for China?
Jacob Varela is a second-year student at UCSB with a double major in History and Economics. He is from Placentia, California in Orange County. He has been doing Model UN for four years now, with two years of experience in high school before joining the team here at UCSB. He's traveled around the country (and beyond) for conferences and chaired at SBIMUN and GauchoMUN. Outside of Model UN, you can probably find Jacob reading on the beach, trying to find new places to eat in Isla Vista, or cramming for his next economics midterm.
Byron Chan is a second-year double major in Political Science and Economics from the Bay Area, California. This is his second year doing Model UN and he is excited to serve as a Crisis Director for the JCC: Communist Party. In his extremely limited free time, he loves listening to music, working out, and promoting communism to his friends. His MUN hot take is that General Assembly is cringe and heartless. He is overall excited for an absolutely banging committee session. Byron looks forward to serving as Crisis Director for this committee.
