Historical Crisis Committee


One of the most prominent dictators of the Roman Republic, Julius Caesar, has been assassinated. It has been discovered that Caesar had been stabbed to death my Roman senators in Rome, Italy, due to resentment over Caesar’s rising popularity and power. Approximately 60 senators were reported to have taken part in the conspiracy prior to the senate meeting on March 15, also referred to as the Ides of March. With the new reign of Augustus Caesar, it marked the transition from the Roman Republic to the Roman Empire. Some believe the assassination was fitting for the former dictator, while others argue the senators actions were immoral and unjust. As of now, delegates must weigh the impacts Caesar’s death had on the public, and what further measures must be taken in order to bring peace to Rome. 

The HCC is designed for experienced delegates. Position papers are mandatory for this committee, and must be completed in order to be considered for an award.  


Please send your position papers to, along with any questions or concerns regarding your position papers.
