United Nations Security Council, 2020


The Arab Spring of 2011 led to regime change throughout much of the Middle East and North Africa. What started as a fruit vendor self immolating in rural Tunisia culminated in the fall of multiple decades-old dictatorships. Potentially the most recognizable of these is the death of Muammar Qaddafi in Libya, leading to a civil war between two governments fighting for control. Delegates in the UNSC will be tasked with addressing the instability in the region domestically while also dealing with other sources of instability, such as returning ISIS fighters.
