What is the
Model United Nations (MUN)?
The Model United Nations (MUN) is an educational simulation of the procedures, protocol, structure and actions of the real United Nations. Set up around the same time in the wake of the Second World War, the Model United Nations promotes peaceful resolutions of world issues through cooperation, compromise and consensus between individual countries.
Various international schools around the world host MUN conferences and open their doors to motivated delegates who are assigned a country different to their own to represent in one of their committees. Before taking part in these conferences, students must spend a great deal of time researching their respective nations, writing policy statements on the committee issues to be debated, preparing opening speeches and creating draft resolutions. During the conferences, they are then tasked with debating committee topics from their country’s perspective with the ultimate goal of getting their resolutions passed.
Model United Nations
at SIBS Chiangmai
This is a new and exciting program for SIBS Chiang Mai this year. An ECA has been set up to prepare selected delegates for success in two conferences this year. There is also a Google Classroom forum for students to study the materials independently.
Students who enrol as delegates in the Model United Nations programme at SIBS Chiangmai have the opportunity to earn credits that are recognised by Rangsit University. More details on this will be given to interested delegates.
