President Ashraf Ghani’s War Cabinet is a continuous crisis committee (CCC) part of a joint crisis committee (JCC). The full duration of committee will involve crises throughout, ranging from Taliban attacks on government structures, to persecution of international peace workers, and many other events that will test the mettle of the delegates. This committee is a war cabinet enabled with executive presidential powers vested by the Constitution of Afghanistan.
The rapidly deteriorating situation in Afghanistan has left the fate of 40 million people hanging in the balance as a relentless power struggle ensues. With the withdrawal of the forces of the United States, a vacuum is left in the country and the government has lost its strongest pillar of support; as a result, the Taliban is conducting rapid incursions into government territory and human rights violations abound. In this Joint Crisis Committee with the European Parliament Committee on Foreign Affairs, delegates will be expected to arrive at instantaneous inventive solutions to an onslaught of crises as part of President Ashraf Ghani’s War Cabinet, with the aim to stop the refugee exodus and arrive at long-term solutions to secure the peace, security, and welfare of the Afghan people.
Welcome to President Ashraf Ghani’s War Cabinet. With the rapidly deteriorating situation in Afghanistan, and the nebulous structure of the government, the fate of 40 million citizens of Afghanistan is left to the will of an unstable government and an extremist group. The withdrawal of the United States from the country is bound to leave a power vacuum with no one left to keep the Taliban in check. Amidst this, increasing reports of Taliban expansion have surfaced and the organisation has once again reared its fierce head in open defiance of Afghanistan’s legitimate government and the international community.
As a member of the War Cabinet, you are in a prime position to promulgate effectual change, and your choices will determine the future of your people. Any crisis does not exist in isolation: the European Parliament’s Committee on Foreign Affairs that is currently in session in this MUN expects strong leadership from the Afghan government to stop the refugee exodus. The stakes are as high as can be- the fate of your country lies firmly in your hands.
We look forward to seeing in-depth research, outstanding debate, and conclusive action to the crises as they come. To this end, the Executive Board wishes all of you the best of luck in the trying endeavours that await the War Cabinet Committee, with the hope that terror finds no place in the future of our world as we see it.
