Topic Summary: Abolishing Modern Slavery

Director’s Letter

Hello fellow delegates! My name is Risako Tomita, and I am delighted to have you at our 2023 Japan Metropolitan Model United Nations conference! I will be the director for this year’s Intermediate 1 committee. I was born in Tokyo and lived in Washington D.C. for four years, and currently attend Senzoku Gakuen High School. I started Model United Nations in my first year of junior high school, which means I am in my fourth year as a delegate. Though the pandemic became an obstacle for MUN conferences I planned to attend, I am looking forward to future conferences. The topic for this year’s committee is modern slavery. Despite treaties and UN resolutions that combat this topic exists, it still remains a problem in both developed and developing countries. I hope delegates in this conference will brainstorm innovative solutions, while also socializing with others to gain new perspectives. I look forward to seeing you in March, and please feel free to contact us if you have any questions!
