On the second day of JoMUN XVI the Advisory Panel launched into debate with the delegate of the United Kingdom delivering her opening remarks on ‘Ensuring the safety of women in Rohingya refugee camps in Bangladesh’.
“The delegate of the United Kingdom believes this is an appropriate clause which will help solve or limit the issue of SGBV’s (Sexual and Gender-Based Violence) in refugee camps… it provides more security for women and also gives a safe space for them to be able to ask questions…, or be able to talk about SGBV’s in a safe environment… It also addresses limiting the use of weaponry in the camps so that threatening women into possibly doing something they do not want to do can be limited… it suggests that the abutment in numbers be anonymous,” said Theodora Reiter from Harare International School.
After the opening speech from the delegate, the house moved onto Points of Information for the representative of the UK. After this, other delegates got the floor to speak for or against the clause as a whole.
