WGSS: Russian Empire

In the final years of the Russian Empire, the middle and working classes have heavily increased and political tides are shifting internally. Meanwhile, on the international stage, there is a Great War brewing that Russia will invariably have to take part in. Will Russia be able to balance domestic turmoil and the changing of the status quo with an extremely risky global war that threatens to expose the incompetence of the Tsarist government and the Imperial Army alike?

 Ali is a third year Global Security and Justice major from Charlottesville, Virginia. Besides competing in high school Model UN with his hippy Quaker school and being on the UVA MUN travel team, he has previously staffed for VAMUN and was an ACD in the most recent VICS conference. He is a brother of the service fraternity, Alpha Phi Omega, and is a diehard Arsenal fan (although he dabbles in the Egyptian Premier League as well). He plans to one day be a benevolent monarch.
