UNiGMUN 2018

Who wants to be a Diplomat?

 

Dear friends of Model United Nations,

 

you are cordially invited to the 11th session of the Model United Nations of the UNi-Gruppe 2018, the UNiGMUN 2018 – a simulation of the United Nations Security Council on the agenda “Approaches to resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and achieving sustainable peace”, which will be held in Berlin from June 8th until June 10th, 2018. The MUN session will be preceded by a prep meeting with a presentation and discussion by an expert. It will take place on Friday 8th June 2018 at 6 p.m. at the Freie Universität Berlin.

 

You may register for the conference through sending the below application form to unigmun2018@yahoo.com. This year there is a participation fee of 12 EUR which will cover any room rental, catering and printing costs which may arise during the conference. Everyone who has registered will be provided with our bank account details so that she can transfer the fee. Also members of the UNi-Gruppe are allowed to participate. Please note that we won’t reimburse the registration fee, if a participant cancels her registration less than two weeks before the conference.

The registration period ends Friday 11th May 2018, at 11 p.m. After that, you will get all materials for preparation.

 

Since 2007 the UNi-Gruppe organizes the UNiGMUN regularly at least once per year. The simulation is conducted in English and open to all people around the world. Unfortunately we cannot reimburse any travel costs or accommodation fees. The MUN includes one weekend (Friday until Sunday) as well as an input lecture on the agenda and a preparation meeting in the run-up to the simulation.

In the last years, the General Assembly, the ECOSOC and the Conference of the Parties were simulated on very different issues and conflicts, e.g. piracy off the coast of Somalia, North Korea's nuclear program or technologies for the loss and damage associated with climate change.

Up to 35 students around the world are invited to take the role of an UN-diplomat, an NGO representative or a journalist!

Along with the expert lecture an extensive Delegate's Handbook including a background guide will help the delegates to prepare for the simulation.

UNiGMUN is one of the few MUN conferences in Germany, where inexperienced participants can take part in a Model United Nations for the first time. For experienced students, it is also regarded a great opportunity to prepare themselves for bigger international MUNs. Hence, both experienced and inexperienced delegates are welcome.

 

The 11th UNiGMUN in June 2018 will host one committee: The United Nations Security Council on the agenda “Approaches to resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and achieving sustainable peace”. As already mentioned the preparation meeting will take place on 8th June from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the Seminar Center of the Freie Universität Berlin. The first day of the conference on 9th June will be held at Humboldt Universität, whereas the second day on 10th June will again be hosted by the Free University. On both days the participants should be present from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

 

If you have further questions regarding the committee, the delegations, agenda items, program, venue or MUNs in general, feel free to contact us via unigmun2018@yahoo.com.

 

Kind regards,                                                                                                   UNiGMUN 2018 Team
