What makes the United Ambassadors MUN Conference special? Why should you choose it from a wide array of Model UNs in every corner of the globe?

The obvious response would be “because it offers the world’s most accurate simulation of the United Nations.” But what does that mean for you? And why should...

Embarking on research assignments for a Model United Nations (MUN) conference can be an incredibly daunting task. Granted, understanding the background, current stance and prospects of a UN Member State is nothing short of complex. Adding the multifaceted global issues delegates find solutions for i...

Ask any delegate about the skills that they would like to improve through Model United Nations (MUN) and, chances are, most would mention “debating skills.”

But before we go into detail on how to master the art of debate, let us begin by asking ourselves the following question, what is debating?

Debat...

It is as hard to master the arts of public speaking and debating, as it is to master the subtleties of negotiation. To the mere observer, a Model United Nations (MUN) delegate who excels at public speaking can steal the show, but both chairs and delegates know that it is negotiations where MUN’s mos...

Standing in a committee room cramped with delegates staring at you and somehow your peripheral vision keeps getting narrower, your voice shakes, your palms get sweaty, and your thoughts begin to scatter as you try to remember the exact words of the speech that is supposed to mesmerize the UN’s Secre...

Do you remember the very first time you were ever introduced to MUN? For me, it was at the age of 10, during a summer school by the American University in Cairo.
