Hey! I am attending my second conference this month and I was assigned Kazakhstan in SOCHUM. I’ve done research on the topics that were chosen (enhancing the standards under police detention, hydro-diplomacy and violence against women & human trafficking). My position paper is due in a week or so and I’m having troubles writing it. I do not know wether or not I have to include the bad things Kazakhstan does in it or do I just mention the things they say they do (even if they don’t really do them)? Thanks for the help! I really appreciate it.
