Model United Nations, or more popularly known as MUN, is the coming together of an incredibly diverse group of students from schools and colleges of all trades to discuss, debate and ponder over the pressing issues faced by the world. One could perhaps even call it as an experimental learning program which helps students to grasp a better understanding of the inner working of the United Nations and is unarguably an apt venue to hone their skills in diplomacy, critical thinking, lobbying, public speaking, writing and research.
MUNs are a simulation of the United Nations which allows the participants to take the role of a country's representative (referred to as Delegate) and to put that country's views and ideas in front of other delegates. The conferences attempt to emulate the UN proceedings and the participants can either be delegates in UN committees such as the Disarmament and International Security committee (DISEC), Security Council (SC), Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) etc. or a part of the International Press (I.P). The participants are presented with their task in advance, along with an agenda that the committee will conduct deliberation over. Delegates are required to conduct detailed research and formulate positions that they will debate with the fellow delegates in the committee all the while continuing to adhere to the domestic as well as foreign policies of their respective countries. The event also provides the participants a chance to socialise and improve their networking skills which are of utmost importance. At the end of the conference a resolution is drafted which is once again put forward for scrupulous analysis, debate and modification.
From the saying “If you can speak, you can influence. If you can influence, you can change the world”, it is affirmative that MUNs are without a doubt, a game changer with many either discovering their passion or effectively using this as a means to wipe away their stage fright and shyness to speak out their mind to create and project a cool and calm individual with well collected thoughts who has the remarkable capability of expressing without hindrance.
