One of the most dynamic committees found at SOMA is its Historical Crisis Committee, in which delegates take on the roles of the key decision-makers at a time of crisis in history. Using their knowledge of the historical facts and while staying true to their assigned characters, delegates must navigate the situation to a favorable resolution, all the while facing challenging new developments from SOMA’s Crisis Staff. Past crises have included the Falklands War, the War of the Triple Alliance and the Tokugawa Shogunate.

In 2019, SOMA XLVII will be introducing an all new single crisis committee, in addition to its joint Historical Crisis.
