Who We Are

SOCIAL & CULTURAL CONNECTION

The conference blends together engaging committee sessions with immersive "in-conference" trips and spectacular social events to provide an unforgettable experience. This goal is embodied by the ‘International MUN Spirit’ - a guiding principle that encourages friendship and cooperation across borders, along with a deeper understanding of cultures and perspectives beyond one’s own.

About us

Youths from different corners of the world can take part in this Model United Nations conference as delegates in order to discuss on global issues and get a solution of those issues on their own. A delegate can gain insight into the modus operandi of the United Nations and the dynamics of international politics by playing the role of a diplomat and representing a country or an organization.

Know more

 

International Model United Nations is a three-day international relations simulation. At IMUN, delegates gain insight into the workings of the United Nations and the dynamics of international relations by assuming the roles of UN representatives and members of other international bodies and national cabinets. IMUN is an exciting opportunity for students to debate issues that confront world leaders and to draft resolutions in response to these global issues. Participants will develop their abilities to work with others who are equally motivated and passionate about the topics of debate and to respond to global concerns.

This longevity and the dynamic that only a conference of our size can make IMUN the preeminent simulation of its kind in the world.

True to the spirit of the United Nations, IMUN strives to foster a constructive forum for open dialogue on complex global issues, including international peace and security and economic and social progress. IMUN stresses the in-depth examination and resolution of pressing issues, emphasizing process over product. During the conference, students learn the importance of balancing national interests with the needs of the international community, while also learning about the powers and limitations of international negotiation. Delegates will preserve their countries’ national policy while negotiating in the face of other, sometimes conflicting, international policies.

DELEGATE EXPERIENCE

The true essence of International MUN revolves around the delegate experience, and we are committed to ensuring that our participants have the most engaging and enriching experience possible. Whether this comes from debate or diplomacy inside committee or the formation of relationships with fellow InternationalMUNers from around the globe, the conference is an experience that delegates remember for a lifetime.

Council Overview

 

The press, being an essential element of modern day’s democratic system determines today’s sociopolitical climate and contains an immense diversity of perspectives. Worldwide, the press serves as the primary link between the United Nations and the global population, and as a part of I- MUN’s Press Corps, you will be responsible for maintaining this link. Like in reality, it will be essential that the people remain constantly informed about the actions of the committees. As a delegation in this conference’s Press Corps, this will be your challenge. Unlike other traditional MUN committees, the Press Corps does not have a specific agenda. In the bulletins of other committees, the topic would be outlined and an introduction would be given. With the Press Corps, however, there is no topic to outline, for the objective of the Press Corps is to report on the conference as a whole.

 

Topic A: South China Sea Dispute: Cooperation or Conflict
Topic B: Non-Proliferation of nuclear weapons in DPRK

The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) is one of the six principal organs of the United Nations, charged with the maintenance of international peace and security as well as accepting new members to the United Nations and approving any changes to its United Nations Charter. Its powers include the establishment of peacekeeping operations, the establishment of international sanctions, and the authorization of military action through Security Council resolutions. Formed in 1946, it is the only UN body with the authority to issue binding resolutions to member states.

 

Topic A: Measures to reduce mortality rate in metropolitan areas caused by environment pollution with emphasis on developing countries
Topic B: West African Ebola Crisis

The World Health Organization (WHO) is a specialized agency of the United Nations that is concerned with international public health.

The World Health Organization has 194 member nations and provides support and information on issues such as food safety, HIV/AIDS, maternal health and scientific research.

 

Topic A: The detention of Kulbhushan Jadhav by Pakistan: India vs. Pakistan
Topic B: Whaling in the Antarctic: Australia vs. Japan

A division of the United Nations, consisting of 15 member states that settles legal disputes submitted to it by them. The International Court of Justice, also called the World Court, meets in The Hague, The Netherlands. The International Court of Justice (ICJ) is the principal judicial organ of the UN. The Court has two functions: To settle, in accordance with international law, legal disputes submitted by States, and to give advisory opinions on legal questions referred to it by authorized UN organs and specialized agencies.

The International Monetary Fund (IMF), formed in 1945 is an international organization headquartered in Washington D.C. of 189 countries working to foster global monetary cooperation, secure financial stability, facilitate international trade, promote high employment and sustainable economic growth, and reduce poverty around the world. Through the fund, and other activities such as the gathering of statistics and analysis, surveillance of its members' economies and the demand for particular policies, the IMF works to improve the economies of its member countries.

 

The team of Operation Neptune Spear will be specializing in dealing with a threat to national security, under conditions in which the object of the targeted attack is offered little or no opportunity to surrender to attacking forces.

It was founded by Maurice Strong in June 1972 and Environment has overall responsibility for environmental problems among United Nations agencies but international talks on specialized issues, such as addressing climate change or combating desertification, are overseen by other UN organizations, like the Bonn-based Secretariat of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification. UN Environment has aided in the formulation of guidelines and treaties on issues such as the international trade in potentially harmful chemicals, transboundary air pollution, and contamination of international waterways.

 

Topic A: Human rights infringements by technological development.
Topic B: Human rights and fundamental freedoms of indigenous people.

The United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) is a United Nations System inter- governmental body responsible for promoting and protecting human rights around the world.

The council works closely with the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) and engages the United Nations' special procedures. The UNHRC addresses human rights-related situations in all UN member states.
