Monash University is hosting the Victorian Model United Nations (VicMUN 2015) this year. The model conference will run from Wednesday 11th February – Friday 13th February, and is held at Clayton Campus. There will also be social events every evening of the conference, where participants will be able to mingle and network with delegates from all committees.
Model United Nations (also known as Model UN or MUN) is a conference designed to simulate the actions of the United Nations, in which students participate as delegates to various UN committees. Participants research and formulate political positions based on the actual policies of the countries they represent, and are expected to objectively advocate on behalf of their country. Global issues are presented to each committee, which are then discussed at length by the delegates. Delegates then attempt to form a resolution to the issue being debated.
