What is a Model UN ?

A Model United Nations is an international conference that attracts and gathers students and civil society activists from all over the world where they play the roles of “International diplomats” so as to make their voice heard. The diplomats while working within United Nations’ workshops are required to follow and respect the general structure of the United Nations: the main organs and committees are represented; delegates impersonate a country in their own committee, and adopt their country’s position about a specific topic. The future leaders of the countries spark the debate, exchange perspectives and negotiate in order to write, vote and pass a final resolution, aiming at proposing solutions to the international communities in regards to the current and hottest issues, and taking part in shaping a better world and global citizenship.
