Suez Canal

Description

The year is 1956, and in the midst of The Cold War, Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nassar has just nationalized the Suez Canal, one of the most iconic, powerful, and sought after waterways in the world. Nassar’s choice to have Egypt reclaim their waterways is a brave statement against colonization, a powerful new asset to Egypt, and a sign of a new Middle East, but this decision does not go unpunished. France and the United Kingdom, now forced out of a stronghold that they once held colonial power over are outraged, and soon decide they must take action to reclaim what was once there’s. This committee starts in August 1956, one month after President Nassar’s decision, and we hope that our delegates will join together to combat crises and pressing topics such as The Cold War, post-colonialism, and militarization, all while finding a comprehensive and original solution.
