CHINESE NATIONAL SUPERVISORY COMMISSION

CRISIS MANAGER: JONATHON MAREK

Chair: JACKSON DALMAN


The National Supervisory Commission of the People's Republic of China was formed in 2018 as a state organ responsible for anti-corruption efforts at every level of government, from local to the central government, targeting “both tigers and flies.” While the scope of Commission’s specific powers and processes is still unclear, what is clear is that it possesses immense investigative powers as well as the strong support of the mastermind behind its creation, Xi Jinping. The organization’s role is key to improving the efficacy of CCP government and preserving the Party’s reputation and standing in the public eye, and its operations will therefore be carefully scrutinized. This very new and politically important agency will tackle entrenched corruption among various powerful government agencies, while remaining in line with the wishes of the Politburo and Chairman Xi. The committee’s unique structure and powers will provide delegates with a variety of opportunities to influence the flow of debate both in-room and through crisis.

Topic Abstract

Topics

Corruption within CCP Leadership | Oversight of Local and Regional Government | Defining Scope and Activities

 

APPROXIMATE COMMITTEE SIZE: 25


Learning goals

Delegates will gain...

  • An understanding of the operations of and relationships between complex & opaque institutions of the PRC government and CCP leadership, including how political pressures and priorities affect enforcement in the context of a system lacking an independent judiciary and strong rule of law;
  • Experience addressing pervasive and entrenched corruption and its negative impacts on institutional strength and stability, with an eye toward promoting regime stability;
  • Exposure to the development processes of a new political and legal institution and knowledge of how to operate in a flexible and fluid institutional framework;
  • Insight into balancing multiple (sometimes competing) official roles, as delegates to the Commission may have duties, responsibilities, and powers that parallel but are independent of those held as members of the Commission.

About the Crisis Manager

Jonathon Marek is a member of the Walsh School of Foreign Service Class of 2021, planning to major in International Political Economy with a certificate in Asian Studies. He got involved with Model UN in high school, and after being thrust into a competitive World War II JCC during his first conference, surviving a trial (against the wishes of the Japanese Emperor), and coming out with an honorable mention, he has been addicted to crisis committees ever since. He has continued his obsession with MUN through into college, traveling with Georgetown's team and staffing both NCSC and NAIMUN, including serving as USG of Councils and Boards for NCSC XLVI. His own personal interest, stemming from 10 years of studying Mandarin Chinese and 2 study abroad trips to China, is Sino-American trade and security relations. He is very excited to meet you all in February and looks forward to seeing how delegates crack down on "both tigers and flies" to ensure the continued paramount role of the Party in the nation's affairs.
