MUN Conference 2024

MIUC students recently organised and hosted a vibrant two-day Model United Nations (MUN) Conference on campus on April 18th and 19th. MUN conferences emulate the procedures of the United Nations, with students stepping into the shoes of representatives from UN member states. Each participant was assigned a member state to represent, adding to the excitement with the rule that no student could represent their own nation. In the lead-up to the conference, students dedicated weeks to thorough research and preparation on the topics to be discussed.

Highlighting the exceptional performances, two outstanding delegates were recognised with awards by a distinguished jury. The coveted first prize was bestowed upon Dakota Flaget, a Politics and International Relations BA student, who portrayed the Israeli delegate during the simulation. Meanwhile, Daniel Jaques, an International Relations MA student, clinched the second prize for his portrayal of the North Korean delegate.

 

Adding to the enriching experience, the conference welcomed two esteemed guest speakers. Borgar Olsen Tormodsgard, from the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Madrid, delivered an inspiring opening speech on the first day, followed by Marisa Moreno Castillo from the Danish Consulate in Málaga, who kicked off the proceedings on the second day.

The MUN conference serves as an invaluable opportunity for students to delve deeper into the principles of the UN and gain insight into its operational mechanisms, fostering greater understanding and engagement with global affairs.
