Interview with Dr Perraki Dr Perraki is an indispensadle part of ThessISMUN. She managed to make it real but it’s up to ones coming to make it stronger. Everyone knows her as the heart and soul of the comference. We managed to ask her a couple of questions and she kindly answered: What do you think about ThessISMUN 2014? This year’s ThessIS has been an indisputable success. The Committees worked smoothly and the Board was excellent. I am looking forward to seeing all the Resolutions released at the Closing Plenary Session of the General Assembly with the presence of Thessaloniki’s Mayor, Yannis Boutaris. What do you think of the new Committees added to ThessISMUN 2014 as well as the already existed ones? The International Court of Justice was just Excellent! The Board is of the higher standards. Most of them participated in Moot Court Competitions and everything run according to plan. The Assembly of the European Regions was also an undeniable success. Furthermore, I am particularly fond of the North Atlantic Council’s debates. The Crisis that occurred at the Security Council were demanding and mindful. The Crisis Committee hasdone a wonderful work. (Cont. Page 2)

Interview with Dr Perraki II Can you give us a hint of next year’s Committees? Next year we will simulate UNESCO, the AER will be our new French speaking Committee and we will introduce a new one regarding the rights of people with disabilities. Last but not least, we will present the International Law Commission on the topic of the progressive development of International law and its codification.

Interview with Dr Perraki III Could you comment on the flower game? We managed to offer 1150 flowers and raise more than 600 Euros that go straight to charity. Any final words for this interview: I would like to thank the members of the Secretariat and the Board that make ThessISMUN 2014 possible. All the delegates that keep coming and of course our sponsors for their financial support. The Ex-Way This year we had the chance to meet some Ex-members of the Secretariat that, even not participating in ThessISMUN 2014 in an active way, they keep a special place in our hearts. ThessIS Daily posed four different questions and it remains to you to read all the answers given! The questions: 1. Which are your views on ThessISMUN 2014? 2. Is there a moment that you would never forget throughout your MUN career? 3. Any prediction for next year’s ThessISMUN?
