The Brown University Crisis Simulation

BUCS 2018

Dear Delegates,

On behalf of the Brown Model United Nations programme, we are honored to invite you to the Eighth Annual Session of the Brown University Crisis Simulation (BUCS), which will be held on the Brown University campus from March 1-3, 2019.

The Brown University Crisis Simulation is built on a platform of collaboration and innovation, and though we are a relatively young conference, we believe our youth allows us the flexibility to provide a truly comprehensive experience for delegates of all levels of experience.

The BUCS committee topics are specifically chosen each year to challenge delegates to solve issues demanding unconventional and innovative solutions that can only be reached through an acute understanding of international geopolitics and history. In an effort to provide a more comprehensive experience this year, BUCS will be expanding to include specialized committees, in addition to the crisis committees we have organized in the past. This year’s committees range from sugar strikes in Hawaii to the 1997 Handover of Hong Kong. We remain confident that this year’s delegates, like those who have attended BUCS in the past, will create extraordinary solutions to make an impact on these extraordinary issues and circumstances.

On behalf of the Secretariat and the entire BUCS staff, we hope that you will be able to join us next March. Please contact our Director of Outreach at if you have any questions. We look forward to welcoming you to BUCS 2019!


Caroline Deitch and Shane Niesen
