The General Crisis at GrunnMUN 2019
TEIMUN being one of the longest conferences being held in Europe and spans over the week, we have a proud tradition and method of making sure the delegates are continuously engaged in the debate, Crisis. Although we have a specific crisis council for the delegates that are willing to take the challenge, that being the historical crisis council, most of our delegates will not experience the thrill of the crisis. Therefore, the General crisis staff exist to throw our normal councils into disarray and to truly test the delegates skills to think on their feet. As it is normal in the real world for debates and conventions to be affected by external forces, our crisis staff acts as TEIMUN’s force majeure. Although this is not a council, be prepared to encounter them at any given time in TEIMUN!
