Model United Nations in Munich
We are enriching Model United Nations with our diverse backgrounds.
Model United Nations in detail
Model United Nations (MUN) is an educational game organized by university associations worldwide, which simulates the United Nations, its committees and other international organizations.
One could understand MUN as case studies dealing with challenges that intersect with international politics.
How does it work?
Delegations consisting of students tackle diplomatic challenges. Each delegation is assigned a country whose interests are to be represented in the best possible way.
During the preparation phase, the attitude of the country to be represented towards a particular issue is worked out. Then realistic approaches are worked out and the defense of these are trained in free speech. At the end of the negotiations, the goal of the committees is to pass a resolution on which the country representatives have exerted the best possible influence - in accordance with the interests of their country.
How we deal with it?
Unlike other MUN societies, we select challenges that represent the diversity of our members. For example, recent sessions dealt with Technology in Healthcare, Climate Change, World Trade and Terrorism.
We spend about two-thirds of our weekly sessions on MUN. Usually, we deal with one challenge for two sessions, keeping preparation time on a moderate level.
We find innovative solutions for real problems by leveraging the diversity of our community.
Once a week, we meet at the main campus of the Technical University of Munich.
On top of that, we visit MUN conferences together. In the last thirteen years, we have visited conferences all around the world: Puebla (Mexico), Rome, London, Oxford, Maastricht, Hamburg, Beijing, Taipei, Istanbul, Athens, Budapest, Amsterdam, Singapore...
We support our members financially to cover travel costs.
