Historical Advisory Panel on the Question of the Suez Canal (HAPQSC)
I. Nationalization of the Suez Canal
II.The Situation in the Sinai Region
III. International Status of Port Said
The Advisory Panel can be classified as an advisory body which focuses on regional issues and provides a recommendation to the other related forums and parties. The major intention of the Advisory Panel is to give considered advice to a committee, an organization or a corporation; meanwhile refraining from explicitly advancing any specific members’ interest. The committee consists of experts who are adequately experienced about the subject, from the advisory states. An important point is that the documents that have passed from the AP will not be swiftly implemented since AP is an advisory organ and has no authority to enforce any sanctions directly to a state or against an action. Furthermore, experts are not able to abstain or vote against for a clause without having explained their reasons for not agreeing with the implementations posed by the referred clause in the context of their foreign policy. If the presidency does not take this explanation as valid and sufficient enough to be against or abstaining, President may overrule that vote. In this year’s edition of KMUN, the delegates of the Historical Advisory Panel will be going back in time to deal with the Question of the Suez Canal by focusing on the specific issues related to the Suez Canal Crisis.
