The Political and Current Affairs Society (POLITICAS) aims to bring together young like-minded NJCians with a passion for politics and current affairs. NJC POLITICAS will provide formal training for *Model United Nations Conferences, as well as conferences such as the Singapore Model Parliament and Model ASEAN.
The society serves as a platform for students to discuss local and global affairs on a deeper level.
CCA sessions encourage members to think critically and quickly on their feet, in tandem with the 7 thinking dispositions model, with added emphasis on the disposition of being broad thinking and adventurous, to be intellectually careful, have sustained intellectual curiosity, plan and be strategic. Members will be confident and articulate speakers.
*The Model United Nations (MUNs) is a simulation of a real United Nations (UN) conference where participants role-play as diplomats representing member states on issues which the UN discusses. The participants debate in a simulated session of an organ (committee) of the UN, such as the Security Council or the General Assembly.
