Zoe Ellingwood

Zoe is a fourth-year Political Science student with a focus on Genocide and Human Rights Studies at Clark University. She is so excited to oversee the first-ever Advanced GA committee at ClarkMUN focused on her research interest: peacebuilding in post-conflict regions!


Zoe found a passion for Model United Nations during her first year at Clark and has been involved with the organization ever since. She currently serves as the Senior President of MUN at Clark and is an avid traveling delegate. On the collegiate circuit, Zoe competes in GA and Specialized committees, taking a particular liking to legal and human-rights-based committees. She was voted on the Best Delegate First All-Star Team from 2022-2023 and is excited for her last semester on the circuit. You might remember her from previous ClarkMUN iterations, as she chaired the SOCHUM in 2023 and Warren G. Harding's Cabinet the year before.


Originally from Düsseldorf, Germany, she enjoys Premier League football, finding new restaurants in Worcester, and techno music. For any questions about MUN on the collegiate circuit, ClarkMUN, or about the UNPBC, she can be reached at!

2023 UNPBC: Post Conflict Peace Building

Attention: This committee will function as an advanced General Assembly committee. Due to the fast-paced structure of this committee, only delegates with prior MUN experience are encouraged to participate. 


The United Nations Peacebuilding Commission (UNPBC) was established in 2005 at the request of the UN Security Council and the General Assembly. Its main purpose is to encourage, maintain, and promote peace worldwide. This mission is particularly pertinent during the transitioning process of post-conflict regions. By installing stabilization mechanisms and contributing to peacekeeping operations, this advisory body, comprised of rotating UN member states and non-governmental organizations, attempts to guide high-risk regions through peaceful transition processes. This committee will be structured around the theme: "Youth, Peace, and Security," paying particular attention to how peacebuilding initiatives can include, uplift, and protect youth voices. As this committee is designed to challenge delegates to draft creative solutions and foster challenging debate, an in-depth analysis of the crisis in South Sudan will commence. Delegates must structure their Resolutions around three subtopics: Strengthening Political Institutions, Improving Gender Disparities, and Youth Involvement in Peacebuilding.
