The Ad Hoc committee is a unilateral crisis cabinet that consists mainly in a simulated reality, constructed throughout the session within a constant state of crisis developed by the Strategy Room. The difference between an Ad Hoc committee and a normal Crisis Cabinet is basically the fact that no information regarding its topics and its characters is disclosed before the conference. Due to the fact that a crisis cabinet is in constant motion, the delegates are required to develop certain skills of negotiation and quick crisis resolution. Additionally, certain interdisciplinary skills are also required from the delegates, in order to ensure the quality and the fluency of the debate. That being so, knowledge other than mere comprehension of political dynamics (basic economic, military, religious, and such other concepts) is expected from the delegates, as solutions have to be both pragmatic and technical, in order to guarantee their efficiency. Efficiency which will be achieved by means of a crisis-resolution mentality, and which will be evaluated by the Strategy Room.
When crises arrive to the committee, delegates are required to provide solutions in a very specific form, that is, directives. Directives consist on a brief command/request, which seeks to solve the aforementioned crises, through the adoption of pertinent and specific actions on the matter. The Strategy Room then decides on whether if the directive is effective or not, and determines the consequence of the latter, which can turn out to be a failure, simply inefficient, or successful. Additionally, the form of the debate will remain subject to decisions from the chair, as it reads the course of the cabinet and what turns out to be most suitable to address the ongoing crises. With regards to the participants themselves, they will be actual characters with specific interests and they will have the faculty of engaging in personal activities, these being public or private. Given the nature of their positions, they don’t necessarily need to ask for the approval of the whole committee for authorizing such actions. Needless to say, delegates must always have the notion of representing an actual person in their minds to avoid antagonizing their commanding officer, party leader, CEO or even themselves.
