What Is It?
The Commonwealth of Nations is a voluntary association of 52 independent and equal Sovereign States. Within this structure are the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meetings which take place bi-annually with the next being held in the United Kingdom in 2018. These meeting attempt to orchestrate common policies on certain contentious issues and current events, with a special focus on issues affecting member nations.
Eliot is a third year Computer Science student at the University of Reading. Originally from London, he was active in local secondary school Model UN conferences before founding a new edition at his own school. He’s since moved onto university level Model UN and through being a member of the Reading University Model UN Society for two years, has been elected as the President of the society.
Eliot’s main interests in Model UN pertain to matters of the Commonwealth and co-operation between ex-British territories.
Outside of Model UN, Eliot is an elected trustee for the Students’ Union in Reading and is active in politics on campus. Eliot is very much looking forward to chairing the Commonwealth Council at ReadiMUN17 and hopes you will have a pleasant time in Reading.
Janet is a second year law student at the London School of Economics. For MUN she has travelled and skipped more lessons during term time than she should, although she has no intention to stop.
In addition to chairing in last year's ReadiMUN, she has also staffed in the London Security Exercise, otherwise known as the LSEMUN in the crisis, Gangs of Chicago. She looks forward to chairing ReadiMUN again this December.
