What is Model UN?

 

Model United Nations, commonly known as MUN, is a simulation of the United Nations. In this simulation participants (students and young professionals) take on the roles of foreign diplomats and debate contemporary international matters. Depending on the UN body he or she is assigned to this can vary from a military crisis or human rights abuses to climate change.

 

By discussing these issues from the point of view of a country representative a participant will learn many lessons. Besides broadening ones knowledge of the UN in general and of the topics that are discussed in the preparations and the sessions, participants will also develop skills such as public speaking, lobbying and dealing with the press. This practical experience gives a good understanding of the way decisions are made in the international political arena.

 

Besides these substantive advantages an MUN conference also offers some great social benefits. Participants will have the opportunity to socialize with students from many different cultural and academic backgrounds. Both the committee sessions and the evening program ensure this, giving students a chance to expand their international network.

 

It is the combination of these academic, professional and social skills that make MUN conferences an opportunity for participants to partake in an experience that will last them a lifetime.
