Hictorical Economic and Social Council

Honourable delegates!

It is my honour and pleasure to welcome you on behalf of the President of the
Economic and Social Council on the XI Moscow International Historical UN Model
RSUH!

Model UN has always taken a special place in my heart, and for a good reason. This is a truly unique experience, where you participate in a serious, mature event that presents a test of skill in diplomacy and politics and, at the same time, you play a magnificent game of strategy and persuasion that both invigorates you with a sense of purpose and brings out your competitive side by pitting you against your adversaries in a heated, yet (hopefully) constructive debate.

The topic this year is far from new, yet still quite an important one — the world demand
and supply of opiates for medical and scientific needs. We will have to put our differences behind us to combat the illegal spread of drugs and narcotic substances. I really hope that you are going to enjoy this upcoming Model UN and will find it both inspiring and educational in the same way as we once did!

Sincerely,
President of the Economic and Social Council
Artem Shinkevich

The United Nations shall promote: a. higher standards
of living, full employment, and conditions of economic and social progress and development; b. solutions of international economic, social, health, and related problems; and international cultural and educational cooperation 

From The UN Charter’s Article 55 

Most esteemed and distinguished delegates!

I am very honoured to welcome you to the grounds of the XI Moscow International Historical UN Model RSUH on behalf of the Vice-President of the Economic and Social Council!

Model UN. Oh, the feelings, emotions and memories these words evoke in each participant! It is really hard not to get all excited about something as unusual and attractive as a model UN. What is so remarkable that we see in the Моdel UN? For someone, this is an opportunity to test and sharpen negotiation skills and knowledge of international relations. Others like the atmosphere of comprehensive discussion and intense debate, when any small thing can turn the tide and bring new unexpected consequences to the course of the meeting. Third parties enjoy their chance to embrace the spirit of the UN, to contribute to the greater good and to fully understand the difficulty of the maintaining international peace and promoting solutions to international economic, social, health, and related problems. Everyone makes decisions by their own will and desire.

It is worth noting that the agenda of ECOSOC this year will allow every participant to show everything that they are capable of during a heated discussion on the issue of the world demand and supply of opiates for medical and scientific needs. How far are you willing to go to stop the illegal world drug trade? In the heat of the fight against illegal trafficking of opiates should we really take into account the importance of opiates in pain relief therapy? Moreover, how can we ensure a balance of production and consumption of opiates so that, as written in Roadside Picnic, “each one does not leave offended”? These are the questions we are to face on the grounds of the ECOSOC of the XI Moscow International Historical UN Model RSUH!

I really hope that you are going to enjoy this upcoming Model UN, and you will take your time to prepare and show yourselves as true professionals you are!

Looking forward to our meeting, 
Vice-President of the Economic and Social Council 
Nesmiyan Konstantin
