What is MUN (Model United Nations)?
MUN is an educational simulation of United Nations, in which students can learn about diplomacy and international relations. It is a platform which gathers young people round the world to discuss world matters.
MUN is considered as the most prestigious academic activity in the world by universities and educational institutes. It is a simulation of United Nations, where students, known as delegates, are placed in committees and assigned countries. Delegates conduct research before conferences and formulate positions that they will then debate with their fellow delegates in the committees such as Security Council, Economic and Social committee, Disarmament Commission and many others.
