What is Model UN?
Model United Nations (MUN), is a simulation of the proceedings of international and global committees. Some conferences solely simulate United Nations’ committees. At EmpireMUNC we incorporate several other crisis and non-crisis committees that are not exclusively founded on the UN Charter.
During the conference, participants, who are referred to as “delegates”, will assume the role of important leaders, research their positions, debate and negotiate with other delegates, and take actions to advance the interests of who they represent inside one our 16 different committees. In our General Assembly committees, these roles are typically ambassadors who speak for the interest of member nations. In our Crisis Committees, these roles could vary from being cabinet members, to prominent business leaders, activists and journalists among other characters who may have a significant impact to the topics at hand.
