2 Introductory Letter Dear Delegates, It is our pleasure to welcome you to KSMUN and more importantly to Magical Congress of the United States of America. It is 1926, and Newt Scamander just returned to Europe after his adventures in New York City. Unfortunately, in his wake, questions remain without easy answers. These issues have resulted in a committee hosted at the Magical Congress of the United States of America. Wizards from all over the world are convening to decide how to move forward. Recently, there have been an influx of issues regarding magical creatures, and more important, the rise of Grindelwald. It is up to the members of the Congress to determine a diplomatic plan of action. Our names are Kinsey Bluestein and Allyson Cook and we are both serving as chairs for this committee. Kinsey is a Gryffindor, and Allyson is a Ravenclaw. A little about us: Kinsey is from Columbia, South Carolina and is currently a senior at Kent. She does not know about college yet, but will hopefully have decided by KSMUN. She serves as the MUN fire-marshall and enjoys painting, international relations, ice hockey, and reading in her free time. Allyson is a junior at Kent, and the MUN Director-General. During the spring she plays JV Lacrosse and she also enjoys reading the news, and talking about politics and international relations. We, and our amazing crisis team, will be working our best to create an exciting committee that everyone will learn from and enjoy. There will be some twists and turns, and possibly some special guests, but all is good in magic and fun. We will draw from the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them movie along with anything from the Harry Potter Universe. That said, you also do not have to be a huge Harry Potter fan to participate. Looking Forward to Meeting Y all, Kinsey Bluestein 17 Allyson Cook 18

3 Structure This committee will run in perpetual moderated caucus, a departure from traditional Model United Nations adherence to a speakers list. The committee will run on extended Moderated Caucus: the default shall be a Moderated Caucus with one-minute speaking times. The chair will recognize delegates wishing to speak, and motions will be entertained after each speech has elapsed. For procedural matters, a simple majority of 50% + 1 vote will be required and each delegate must vote either in favour or against, no abstentions will be entertained. No pre-set time limits on speeches are established; this determination, as well as any other particulars of procedure, is left to the discretion of the committee or the chair, as appropriate. The chair shall have final authority on all procedural questions, and will occasionally entertain appeals. Language and Attire The working and official language of the committee shall be English. All delegates are expected to wear Western Business Attire. Electronic Devices All electronic devices, including cellphones, tablets, and laptops, are prohibited from the committee room unless otherwise stated by the Chair. Timers and stopwatches are permitted. Debate Unmoderated Caucus The committee may choose to move into unmoderated caucus for a certain length of time, in which delegates may move freely about the room and speak to each other without direction from the Chair. However, it will be at the Chair s discretion to prohibit unmoderated caucus at certain times during committee. Point of Order A Point of Order may not interrupt a speaker, and can be raised when the delegate believes the rules of procedure have been violated. The chair will stop the proceedings of the committee and ask the delegate to provide arguments as to which rules of procedure has been violated. Point of Personal Privilege A Point of Personal Privilege may be raised when a delegate s ability to participate in debate is impaired for any physical or logistical reason (for instance, if the speaker is not audible). This point may interrupt a speech, and the dais will immediately try to resolve the difficulty.

4 Point of Parliamentary Inquiry This point may be raised by a delegate who wishes to clarify any rule of procedure with the Chair. It may not interrupt a speaker, and a delegate rising to this point may not make any substantive statements or arguments. Point of Information As the name suggests, this point may be raised by a delegate to bring substantive information to the notice. It may not interrupt a speaker, and must contain only a statement of some new fact that may have relevance to debate. Arguments and analyses may not be made by delegates rising to this point. A point of information may also be used to ask questions of a speaker on the general speakers list. Motions Motions control the flow of debate. A delegate may raise a motion when the chair opens the floor for points or motions. Motion require a vote to pass. Procedural motions, unless mentioned otherwise, require a simple majority to pass. Motion for Moderated Caucus This motion begins a moderated caucus, and must specify the topic, the time per speaker, and the total time for the proposed caucus. Motion for an Unmoderated Caucus This motion moves the committee into unmoderated caucus, during which lobbying and drafting of resolutions may take place. It must specify the duration of the caucus. Motion to Suspend Debate This motion suspends debate for a stipulated amount of time. Motion to Adjourn This motion brings the committee s deliberation to an end, and is only admissible when suggested by the Chair. Motion to Introduce Documents A successful motion to introduce essentially puts the document on the floor to be debated by the committee. The sponsor of the document will be asked to read the document and then, if deemed appropriate, the Chair will entertain a moderated caucus on the topic. Motion to Divide the Question This motion may be moved by a delegate to split a document into its component clauses for the purpose of voting. This may be done when a delegate feels that there is significant support for some clauses of the document, but not for the complete document. Motion for a Roll Call Vote A delegate may move to have the vote conducted in alphabetical order. Motion for Speakers For and Against If it would help the proceedings of the committee, a delegate may motion for speakers for and against a document.

5 Amendments After the first draft of a committee document has been introduced, delegates may move to amend particular clauses of the draft. If the amendment is supported by all the sponsors of the documents, it passes as a friendly amendment. Documents Directive Directives are standard orders. All direct actions taken by this committee require a directive. Directives pass with a simple majority. Communiqué Communiqués are formal communications (private by default) directed from the committee to other governments, individuals, or organizations. Committee communiqués pass by simple majority. Press Release Press releases express the sentiments of the committee (NOT individuals) on any issue. They require a simple majority to pass. Communication Between Delegates Delegates can pass notes freely to other delegates within the committee or speak to other delegates during unmoderated caucus. However, talking during another delegate s speech is not permitted. To the Chair/Dias Delegates may also communicate with the Chair through notes. Delegates should feel free to write any questions or comments to the Chair that may improve the committee experience. To Crisis Delegates may address members not present in the committee by addressing notes to Crisis. These notes could be addressed to specific persons or could be general questions on the committee itself. Portfolio Powers Personal Directive A personal directive orders the member s external resources or contacts to take a specific action, within the power of said contacts. Personal Communiqué A personal communiqué extends a specific message from any member to any other entity. The communiqué will not always yield a response. Committee communication refers to private bilateral communication between a delegate and in-room committee participants, the Chair, or out-of room resources. Delegates must carefully denote their note s intended recipients and sign-off.

6 Between Delegates Delegates should feel free to write personal notes to their fellow committee members. We ask that these notes pertain to the business of the committee. To the Chair Delegates may also write to the Chair with questions regarding procedural issues of the committee, as well as a wide range of personal inquiries. Delegates should feel free to write to the Chair on any issue that would improve the committee experience. This could range from a clarification of portfolio powers to substantive questions. To Members not Present If delegates deem it fit to communicate with individuals or entities not currently present in committee, they may write notes directed to such members specifically. Such notes are to be addressed to crisis and passed to the Dais. History Newt Scamander traveled to the United States for what he planned to be a short trip while writing Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. However, a few of his magical creatures escaped when Jacob Kowalski accidently freed them from Scamander s suitcase. This led to him being questioned by the Magical Congress of the United States and issues arising with the New Salem Philanthropic Society. When the MACUSA tried to take Scamander s suitcase, he escaped custody with the help of Tina and Queenie Goldstein. Newt Scamander s search for his lost creatures resulted in almost exposing the muggle world to wizardry. While undergoing his search, he discovered that an Obscurial, a child who suppresses magic until they can not control it, is loose in New York. This child is revealed to be Credence Barebone who escaped and wreaked havoc throughout the city. He is eventually calmed by Newt and Tina, but ordered to be killed by Seraphina Picquery. Once Credence is killed, Percival Graves became enraged and attacked the aurors. Newt Scamander used a Revelio charm to reveal that Graves is actually Gellert Grindelwald. Tina Goldstein took Grindelwald s wand and he was put in custody, though he later escapes. Now the wizarding world is left to decide how to handle the International Statute of Secrecy and how to stop the rise of dark magic.

7 Topics of Debate International Statute of Secrecy The International Statute of Secrecy is meant to protect both wizards and muggles from each other. It was instituted internationally in Meanwhile, MACUSA created even stricter laws segregating the Magical and Muggle (No-Maj) communities in These measures came after centuries of muggles persecuting wizards, including the famous Salem Witch Trials. Recently, however, because of the rise of Grindelwald and sightings of magical creatures, the international statute of secrecy has been breached multiple times. Delegates will have to debate and amend the articles to the International Statute of Secrecy. Magical Beasts Newt Scamander shook the Wizarding community with the escape of his magical creatures in New York City. This has sparked debate on whether these creatures should be exterminated, put into captivity, or preserved in the wild. Stopping the Rise of Dark Magic With the arrest of Grindelwald, his army of revolutionaries have woken and are intensifying their efforts of terror in order to pursue their cause of overturning the Statute and freeing their leader. Preemptive measures must be taken to protect the innocent; simultaneously, a dialogue should be opened to them to negotiate their stance.

8 Characters Gellert Grindelwald: One of the most dangerous Dark Wizards of all time, he was expelled from Durmstrang Institute for conducting dark experiments. He later fostered a friendship with young Albus Dumbledore, making plans to find the Deathly Hallows and lead a Wizarding revolution to end the International Statute of Secrecy. He advocates for revealing the wizarding world to muggles. Seraphina Picquery: Current President of MACUSA. She has a reputation for being a formidable and a strong leader. She also deals with the disruption caused by Newt Scamander s escaped beasts. Newt Scamander: Magizoologist and writer of the textbook Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them'. The book became a best-seller, making Scamander a respected expert in the field of Magizoology. He was able to gain the trust of magical creatures and strongly believes in protecting them. In 1926 Newt caused disruption in New York City because he brought magical creatures into America. Mary Lou Barebone: Very paranoid of magic and fanatically anti-wizarding. She is head of the New Salem Philanthropic Society. Elladora Black: A very old member of the pure-blood Black family, she is about 80 at this time. Elladora instituted the Black family policy of beheading the house elves when they became too old.

Porpentina Goldstein: American auror, whose reputation has been restored after assisting Newt Scamander in recapturing the beasts and helping to expose Grindelwald.

In retaliation, MACUSA offered a 3,700 Dragot reward for information leading to her capture. Carlotta Pinkstone: Famous campaigner known for being an avid supporter of telling muggles about the wizarding world- has been imprisoned several times for using magic in public. Nicolas Flamel: He is famously the current holder of the Philosopher s Stone and oldest currently living person.
