Welcome to Harvard Model Congress 2016! My name is Layla Kousari and I am so excited to be your chair for the conference.
As members of the Committee on Ethics, you will have the opportunity to engage in thought-provoking discussions surrounding the ethical implications of the bills other committees attempt to pass. As a representative in this committee, you will have the chance to work in the only house committee evenly split across party lines to act as a check on the power of politics.
With no partisan majority, this committee will challenge you to emerge yourself in your party’s ideologies and represent them as best as you can. I expect that this committee will be consumed with insightful debates regarding which bills truly serve the American people ethically and justly. We will do all of this in the framework of parli pro and leave the conference as better speakers, thinkers, and listeners.
Outside of committee, you will get to meet people from across the globe and engage in conversations with driven and intelligent individuals. Take this conference as an opportunity to learn about our government, improve your critical thinking skills, and have fun.
If you have any questions or concerns prior to the conference (or just want to reach out and introduce yourself!) feel free to email me at any point.
