Reflection on Friday's class and the major simulation

I found the major simulation very frustrating as a developing country. I felt that up until McDonald's was stripped of their vote, the other delegates were only thinking in terms of developed countries instead of developing countries. I felt that when we were discussing gender equality, the EU in particular seemed to contradict themselves. They said that they wouldn't be forcing gender equality on developing nations but wasn't that what the guidelines were supposed to be doing? Providing rules for developing nations to follow in order to become developed? I felt that the developed nations were underrepresented in this conference however, Japan managed to overlook their own interests and focus on what would be good for developing countries. All in all, it was a very good simulation but now I know what it feels like to be involved in an international conference and not be able to always say what we want.

Thank you Beka! Finally someone who understands that there is more than just the self-interests of each individual nation, and business, in McDonalds' case.
