Every year over 200,000 young people, university and school students alike, come together in conferences across the globe to share their passion for international affairs, the art of diplomacy, and the principles of the United Nations.
Representing countries from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, they gather to discuss some of the most pressing and intriguing problems that confront the world today. Together, they engage in lively debate, searching for solutions to the complex conundrums of contemporary international politics; and in doing so, hone and perfect their skills of diplomacy and debate in a Model United Nations conference. What is Model United Nations? MUN aims to be nothing less than an authentic simulation of the United Nations - complete with Security Council, General Assembly, a wide range of sub-committees, a Secretariat headed by the Secretary General, and of course, you, the delegates!
