What is MUN?
Model United Nations (MUN) is a simulated debate of United Nations bodies and committees. Participants, assigned specific countries, research and adopt positions on issues, engaging in realistic and defended free speech during debates. The ultimate aim is to collaboratively craft a meaningful resolution aligned with represented countries' interests. MUN offers a deep dive into complex UN topics, providing participants with insights into international negotiations and debates, mirroring the real UN procedure.
What we do at MUNTUM
MUNTUM discusses diverse and relevant topics such as Technology in Healthcare, Climate Change, World Trade, and Terrorism. Weekly sessions focus on MUN discussions, with each topic spanning 3-4 sessions to maintain a moderate preparation level. Additionally, workshops and enjoyable debates are incorporated, complemented by social activities like weekly dinners and various events, emphasizing both academic and social aspects within the MUN community.
Once a week, we meet at the main campus of the Technical University of Munich.
Additionally, we collectively attend MUN conferences globally, having visited cities like Oxford, Maastricht, Taipei, and more over the past sixteen years. Financial support is provided to assist members with travel expenses.
