Committee for Indonesian Independence Preparation
This committee will simulate the Indonesian National Revolution, an armed conflict and diplomatic struggle between Indonesia and the Dutch Empire. Independence from the Netherlands was declared by Indonesia on August 17, 1945.  When a country is newly independent, there comes many new questions and struggles, such as how they government will function, which party will be in power, how to maintain independence, and how to abate discontent of the people.  The students of this committee will attempt to answer these questions.  They will establish a new constitution and government, while dealing with Dutch attempts to recolonize.

Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia
The Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia, or the Cambodia Tribunal, is a national court established through an agreement between the United Nations and the Cambodian government to try high-ranking officials of the Khmer Rouge regime for violations against Cambodian penal law, international humanitarian law, and violations against international conventions recognized by Cambodia.  The Supreme Court was established in 2006 and is composed of 9 judges.  Nuon Chea was the chief political ideologist of the Khmer Rouge and right-hand man of Pol Pot, leader of this communist movement.  On 2007 he was charged with war crimes and crimes against humanity.  He is the highest ranking official to be tried by the court, and denies that he committed any wrongdoing.  The students of the ECCC will represent the 9 judges of the Supreme Court, and will decide if Nuon Chea is innocent or guilty.
