Topic Overviews provide an executive summary of the issues relating to the resolution, introducing delegates to the areas they will be discussing, and forming the basis for their understanding of the topic, acting as a springboard from which they can pull together their research.
One overview is produced for each resolution at the National Session, researched and written by the Chairperson who will be leading that committee. They are created prior to the session and are sent out with plenty of notice so as to allow delegates time to familiarise themselves with the various resolutions and topics they will be discussing over the course of the four days.
We hope that you will find these academic articles interesting, engaging and useful, and that they will develop your understanding of some of the issues we are facing today. The Topic Overviews will also be available for those of you who will not be attending the National Session, and will be published here on our website nearer the time of the session. Keep an eye out!
