You want to join us for the MAU 2017 as a chair, that's wonderful! You could be one of the 16 persons monitoring all the debates during the conference, can you imagine? The following questions are a way to get to know you better and see if you seem to fit for the job. There is no good or bad answer, there is only the one you give us and we are pretty convinced that it is the right one, let's see.

If you chose the PSC, we have a job for you, elaborate on the following issue concerning the fight against Boko Haram:
"Should the AU’s Peace and Security Council strengthen the mandate of the Multinational Joint Task Force in order to fight Boko Haram more successfully?"

If you chose the ECOSOCC, what do you think about the following question? Please elaborate.
"What are the opportunities and dangers of the evolving trade and investment relationship between China and the African continent?"

If you chose the ACHPR, we need your opinion of the following topic:
"How would you judge 2015th and 2016th African elections? Can you see a positive development towards a politically more transparent and democratic Africa?"

If you chose the NEPAD, can you help us? We're hitting a wall on the following matter:
"Outline the importance of sustainable land and water management in agriculture for ensuring food security for Africa’s rapidly growing population."

If you chose the CAHOSCC, we need your advice on the matter of climate change:
"Which measures can be taken to educate local communities about the effects of and coping strategies with desertification in affected areas?"

If you chose the ACERWC, we need a report on the following question:
"Which measures can be taken to help street children reintegrate into social structures and a regulated daily routine?"

If you chose the CIDO, we are worried about the following issue, could you help us?
"How can civil society be integrated with policy making even if there is no law granting them participation?"

If you chose the CEN-SAD, brainstorm about the following question and elaborate:
"How can CEN-SAD member states encourage free movement of individuals without promoting and legalizing mass migration along common refugee routes?"

Do you have previous experience in conferences and MUN/ MAU especially? If you have experience in chairing, tell us what were the major challenges you faced while chairing a committee. *

Why did you choose to apply for the MAU conference? Explain us also why you would like to work in this specific committee. *

You already did the hard work, relax, we just have a few questions left to be sure to offer you the best conference.

Would you like to take part in the (marvelous) pre-program preceding the regular three days of the conference or not? *

The pre-program will start on Tuesday the 18th until the beginning of the conference on Thursday and consists of various cultural activities, workshops, cooking and chilling out evenings.
The pre-program costs 25€.

Where would you like to sleep? *

We think that Couchsurfing is the best way to connect with people and to be hosted by local students in welcoming and cozy apartments (we organize everything).
Anyway, you can choose to stay in a hotel and cover the costs of your accommodation during the conference.

Do you have any diet restriction? *

Do you require a visa to come to Bayreuth? *

Do you have any special comments?

Do you believe in unicorns?

Herewith, I confirm that I have read and understood this Code of Conduct and that I will comply with the above stated Articles. *
