What is MUN

A MUN is a simulation of the work of the United Nations in which students from different countries gather to discuss topics of international concern. During the simulation, councils, committees and commissions of the United Nations are devoted to certain topic areas such as the Security Council or the Economic and Social Council.

Prior to the conference, students will be assigned a country or organization whose interests they have to represent. In order to do so, participants conduct research on their country’s or organization’s official stance. During the conference, various political topics will be discussed in English and according to UN procedures. At the end, a resolution – an agreed proposed solution to effectively tackle the problem – will be passed. Besides improving one’s written and oral English communication skills, a MUN conference also fosters international understanding and cultural exchange amongst participants.
