Double Joint Crisis: Aftermath of the Korean War

Background Guide

In the aftermath of the Korea War, millions were left displaced or, at worst, dead. However, North Korea charged onwards and tightened its grip on its people, developing a cult of personality of Kim Il-Sung, which was enforced through dismissal and/or death of the opposition. During this time, North Korea faced censure from the international community, but was hesitant to accept the advice from allies from the Soviet Union and China. The concentration of anti-Western sentiment in the region unite the three world powers, but skepticism and plays for power divide them. Delegates will be tasked with balancing ideology and influence in this historical crisis.

 Committee One: Democratic People’s Republic of Korea
