The Manhattan Project

Topic 1: Development of the US Nuclear Program

Delegates will debate the ethics, politics, etc. of the creation and maintenance of a nuclear research program. This includes the development of nuclear weapons, oversight of nuclear research, and related topics that the delegates feel fall within their purview.

Topic 2: Oversight of Nuclear Materials

Because of their volatility, it is essential that nuclear materials are controlled. Delegates will need to determine whether nuclear materials will be overseen by the military, a civilian agency, or some combination of the two.
