What is MUN?
Model United Nations known as MUN, is an academic simulation of the United Nations that aims to educate participants about current events, topics in international relations, diplomacy, formal session’s current political, social and economic issues and the United Nations agenda. The participants role-play as diplomats representing a country or NGO in a simulated session of a committee of the United Nations, such as the Security Council or the General Assembly. Participants research a country, take on roles as diplomats, investigate international issues, debate, deliberate, consult, and then develop solutions to Global Issues. More recently, simulation of other deliberative bodies, such as the United Nations Security Council, has been included in Model United Nations, even if they are completely unrelated to the UN or international affairs as a whole.
