It gives me immense pleasure in welcoming you all to the ninth edition of the Aitchison College Model UN Conference, 2018. My name is Hamza Irfan and I will be serving as your Committee Chair for the Special Political and Decolonisation Committee at this years edition of ACMUN. I started my MUN career almost 5 years ago and since have had the privilege of attending multiple Model UN conferences inside and out outside of Pakistan. I have had the opportunity to attend the proceedings of a number of committees simulated at Model UN conferences. I am honoured to be serving as your Chair for this edition of ACMUN and I hope we all get to enjoy the 4 days we have together. Delegates, I look forward to thrilling debate by well researched individuals and an active committee which not only manages to cover the topic but also discusses any and every issue related to the issues at hand. I look forward to a decent show of diplomacy and firm representation of a nations views and foreign policies. I hope the debate is lively and that this ACMUN becomes a learning experience for us all.
