Introduction to Model United Nations (MUN)

Introduction to Model United Nations

A Model United Nations (MUN) is an activity which engages people, typically older secondary schools or university students, with the work and importance of United Nations by taking on the roles of ambassadors and other diplomatic figures from a nominated UN member state, or from the UN itself.

They first research and then debate issues of global importance, which could be actual or imaginary scenarios.

MUNs help delegates gain experience and skills in research, analysis, critical thinking, writing, teamwork, debate, mediation and leadership. MUNs vividly demonstrate the interdependence of nations, non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and other players in resolving world problems.
