There are 6 different committees, each dealing with 1 of 6 subtopics. Every committee has 12 members representing different countries. The committees of the Model WTO 2023 are going to be announced soon.
There are 12 represented countries. Each country consists of a delegation of 6 people. Those 6 people are split up into the 6 committees so that every committee has a representative of each country. The countries for the 2023 edition will be announced soon.
The role of the 72 conference participants is to represent one of 12 countries and the country’s interests in one of the 6 committees as a Delegate. Each Committee is composed of one Delegate of each of the countries (12 Delegates for 12 countries per Committee). The Delegate’s main contribution comes during the negotiations of Committee resolutions during which the Delegates are tasked with defending the views and interests of the country they’re representing.
Each of the 12 countries/delegations is led by one Head Delegate. Head Delegates are responsible for aligning the position of the country/delegation for the conference’s debates and negotiations.
The role of the Chairpersons (12 students at the University of St. Gallen only) is to lead one of the six committees and the negotiation.
Each committee must come up with agreements that are in accordance and compatible with other committees. At the end, the clauses of all committees will be put together to form a resolution, on which delegates will vote on the last day.
