All About Advisory Panel (APQ)
Posted 12-10-2018 11:22AM

The Advisory Panel is unique compared to other committees. It has an individual system and specific debate procedure to follow. Unlike other committees it only consists of member states, political parties and humanitarian organisations. The delegates have a longer time to lobby and merge, as they have to create one resolution as a whole board.

 

Lobbying and merging takes place immediately at the beginning of each MUN conference. This is when the delegates discuss their solutions with their ally nations, and they combine their separate clauses into a single more efficient one. Merging with ally countries creates smaller groups in the commission, delegates will only be able to choose one issue from the given area. The process of lobbying and merging can give delegates a broader idea as to who will speak for or against a clause during debate. When a clause has been completed, a total of one main submitter is needed and two or three signatories or co - submitters.

 

Signatories are needed to support a clause through a debate. They can be called upon to speak for it at any time. However, before debate procedure starts in the Advisory Panel, the clause will need to be sent to an Approval Panel. They check the content for information, grammar and format errors. They determine whether or not the clause is eligible for debating.

 

At JoMUN WVI the delegates debated on the Rohingya Crisis, focusing on:

  • Preserving the Rohingya history and culture in their emigration from Myanmar,

  • Establishing a system of education for Rohingya refugee children and young adults,

  • Preventing further outbreak and spread of disease within Rohingya refugee camps in Bangladesh and

  • Ensuring the safety of women in Rohingya refugee camps in Bangladesh.

 

First, the council created multiple clauses on the situations stated above which were debated. Then all passed clauses were combined to form one resolution. However, before it is final, the commission looked over the resolution to make sure it was appropriate and suitable for the Security Council to debate. Once this was completed, both Advisory Panel and Security Council combined commissions and debated the resolution provided by APQ. When this is happening, no delegate in the Advisory Panel committee can take part in the debate, only delegates in Security Council may speak to the resolution as a whole, or submit amendments to be made.
