Welcome to MEDMUN 2017

  

Dear Delegates, Chairs, and MUN Advisors,

 

Thank you so much to those who participated in MEDMUN 2016. Your hard work and dedication were key to the conference’s success. The Secretariat was very impressed by the high standard of debate and we hope you enjoyed the conference as much as we did.

 

We are thrilled to invite you to the fifth edition of MEDMUN, which will be held from the 24th to the 26th of March 2017 in Menton, otherwise known as the “Pearl of France”.

 

Mediterranean Model United Nations, MEDMUN, is a challenging United Nations simulation hosted by the Middle Eastern and Mediterranean campus of Science Po Paris. It tackles the complex political, economic and social issues facing the countries of the Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, and North African today. Held in one of Europe’s leading political science and international relations universities as well as one of France's “Grandes Écoles”, MEDMUN consistently strives to provide students of diverse academic and social backgrounds with an opportunity to better understand the world of diplomacy and international affairs, as well as the dynamics of the United Nations.

 

Featuring world-class keynote speakers who are experts in the MENA region and diplomacy, MEDMUN offers its participants multifaceted perspectives on pressing global issues.

This year’s conference will continue to work in four languages: English, French, Italian and Arabic. Committees will operate in an integrated way featuring a real-time crisis simulation and an interconnected press network. With the growing human population putting immense pressure on the limited resources of our planet, our conference theme will be the implications of rapid population growth and humanity’s environmental footprint. MEDMUN not only promises a unique academic experience, but also an opportunity to build friendships and network in a dynamic ambiance. Thanks to our unique location on the French Riviera, each year our participants enjoy a number of exciting social events in Menton, Monaco and beyond.

 

Be sure to look out for our first wave of applications to be launched in October !

 

We look forward to welcoming you to another diverse, stimulating and truly international conference in our little corner of the French Riviera!

 

Yours sincerely,
