MUN stands for Model United Nations and designates the simulation of diplomatic negotiations within the United Nations (UN).
The main task of MUN consists of taking up the role of a diplomat from one of the Member States of the United Nations. In this role, one represents the position of the respective country as realistically as possible in topic-specific committees, such as the UN General Assembly or the Human Rights Council. Every committee deals with a broad range of contemporary themes in world politics.
The only prerequisite is an interest in international politics and debating. No worries, none of us is a pro and we keep our sessions in a way that it is fun for everybody – beginner or expert!
We have weekly sessions of 1.5 hours plus some shortpreparatory work at home. If you want to you can also attend national and international conferences! To keep it fun we also have some social activities, like BBQ and Bowling, during the semester.
