What's MUN

Model United Nations (MUN)

Model United Nations is an academic simulation of the United Nations that aims to educate students about civics, current events, effective communication, globalization and multilateral diplomacy.

Over the past three years, IST has organized and hosted the TOMUN (Turin Model United Nations) conference. Each year the conference is held at the United Nations campus in Turin in partnership with the International Labour Organization.

 

Within MUN students take on roles as delegates and ambassadors and participate in a simulated session of an intergovernmental organization. Students will research countries, take on roles as diplomats and ambassadors, investigate international issues, debate, deliberate, consult, negotiate and then develop solutions to world problems.

 

Delegates work in their committees and try to lobby, create and vote on clauses ready for resolutions. They then work in the General Assembly to try and pass their resolutions. The MUN club at IST meets once a week and is an excellent platform for students to develop their sense of internationalism and raise awareness of important world issues.

 

It is also a fantastic opportunity to meet other internationally minded students from around the world.
