The Global Model UN conference will not be held in 2012. In its place we will be hosting a 3-day workshop at UN Headquarters in NY for university students and their advisors who are responsible for organizing a MUN conference at the university level.
The workshop will provide access to senior officials and will focus on giving MUN organizers a basic understanding of how the UN functions including its Rules and Procedures, the discussion and action phases of General Assembly Committee meetings, what you need to know when drafting resolutions, the duties and responsibilities of the UN Secretariat and General Assembly officials, and more. The aim of the workshop is to examine how Model UN simulations can more accurately capture the negotiation process as it commonly occurs at the UN.
The workshop will take place from 27-29 August. Please visit our 2012 MUN Workshop website for information on how to apply.
The Workshop will be open to any student who will be organizing a Model UN programme at the university level any where in the world between September 2012 and August 2013. Faculty advisors who have a role in planning MUN conferences as well as students who are interesting in organizing a Model UN conference and have had a leadership role in other Model UN programmes can also apply.
