Registration Opens: Wednesday, December 11

More information, including a link to register, will be posted here in the coming weeks.

The Model Senate Foreign Relations Committee (FRC) represents an integral component of Congress’ oversight responsibilities and acts to uphold U.S. interests in an increasingly globalized world. Senators are tasked with reviewing ongoing political, economic, environmental and social events occurring throughout the world, and providing reasonable, solutions-oriented policies to mitigate harm and promote U.S. interests. The Senate FRC also deliberates on all foreign policy legislation in the Senate and is responsible for the confirmation process of all diplomatic nominations among other responsibilities.

Students in the 2020 Model Senate Foreign Relations Committee will represent select Senators of the committee, their staffs, expert witnesses and journalists as they seek positive solutions to three ongoing global issues. The issues under review will be posted on this page in the coming weeks. Senators will hear testimony from expert witnesses and will craft resolutions suggesting specific policies and proposals aimed at mitigating the threats posed by these issues, and promoting desired solutions.

The 2019 Global Economic Forum is available to schools with a 2019-2020 High School Membership. If you have not yet secured a 2019-2020 Membership, please take a moment to complete registration here.
