GENERAL

What is MUN?

Model United Nations is a conference type which is an educational simulation that students learn about diplomacy, politics and the United Nations. In this conferences students simulate the real UN Bodies, real global political topics and real diplomatic rules, so we can clearly say that it takes place in a professional environment. MUN is also an academic, social and cultural event that involves students to research, speak, debate, write and think.
