What is MUIMUN?

What is a MUN?

The abbreviation MUN stands for Model United Nations and describes an event during which students get to play the role of international delegates and discuss different topics in a wide variety of UN-committees while representing their assigned country. The debates are accompanied by social events and often workshops during which the participants have the opportunity to learn about the United Nations or improve skills such as making speeches or writing working papers.

 

Münster University International Model United Nations

Just as every year MUIMUN will provide its participants the chance to debate in several English and one Spanish committee, working together with over 200 delegates from all over the world in the beautiful city of Münster. Being a great experience for First Timers and also experienced MUNers, it offers a unique atmosphere of social and international diversity tied together by the magical MUIMUN spirit. The castle being Münster’s main attraction is an ideal place to set the scene for diplomatic discussions, relations and - last but not least – our spectacular socials. There will be scholarships available for international delegates and High school scholars accompanied by workshops concerning a wide variety of topics linked to the United Nations.

Partnerships

Since 1998, students from in- and outside Germany travelled to Hamburg to participate in a Model United Nations Conference. In the course of the past 18 years, the HamMUN became the biggest and leading conference of its kind in Germany, attracting MUN veterans, experts and newbies alike. In 2015, more than 600 participants from all over the world were attracted by the HamMUN. We are proud that, many of those who joined the HamMUN once, did return in the following year.

MUNICE association, created in 2013, organizes Model UN and Model EU conferences. The Nice Model European Union, held under the high patronage of the European Parliament and with the presence of former President of the EP Nicole Fontaine, took place between the 21st and the 23rd of October 2016 and encountered a huge success. As a result, the Secretariat of MUNICE is highly motivated to be organizing MUNICE 2017. It will take place from the 8th to the 11th of June 2017. 10 committees, 200 Delegates, Chairs and Journalists, 4 amazing socials and prestigious guest speakers are waiting for you!

Established in 2010, Model United Nations IBA Karachi is one of the largest Model United Nations conferences in Asia. This year, MUNIK has again provided the smartest minds in the country an opportunity to come together and plan the implementation of the 2030 Agenda in a collective effort while making sure that the benefit is also collective in nature. We, at MUNIK, believe that diversity should not divide, that diversity should not stand in the way of collective action and collective success. Diversity allows for the coming together of different belief-systems, techniques, life-styles and cultures, amongst various other things, in a mixture that seeks to build upon the best of all of them. MUNIK, built on the principles of academic debate, seeks to inform and explain to the delegates the importance of diversity and differences and aims to establish the precedent that diversity is not inherently divisive. This January, MUNIK promises to embrace and celebrate diversity, not division.

Sub Saharan International Model United Nations (SAIMUN) is a five-day simulation held annually at the United Nations Office in Nairobi, and the theme for 2017 is “Youth for Sustainable Development Goals”.  The overall objective of this conference is to provoke knowledge generation and innovative strategies to empower the student community to participate in the development agenda through conference deliberations and education.

Not only will it be a wonderful interactive session but it will also be packed with various activities that will enable the delegates familiarize themselves with not only the United Nations but also the wonderful city of Nairobi. To finish it off, we will have a post conference tour to the coastal city of Mombasa for the weekend!
