Dear chairs, delegates, faculty advisors and MUN enthusiasts,
It is my pleasure to invite you to the eighth annual conference of the Mediterranean
Model United Nations (MEDMUN), which will be held from the 27th to the 29th of March
2019 in Menton .
MEDMUN is a challenging United Nations simulation hosted by the Middle Eastern and Mediterranean studies campus of Science Po Paris. It tackles the complex political, economic and social issues facing Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, and North African countries today.
Held in one of Europe’s leading Political Science and International
Relations universities, one of France Grandes Ecoles”, MEDMUN constantly 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 work in and with five languages. English, French, Italian and Arabic
will be at the core of our debates but the novelty this year is the creation of a new committee
Committees will operate in an integrated way featuring a real-time crisis simulation, an
interconnected press network and dedicated NGOs.
For many of us, security and freedom have been major preoccupations during the past
decades. The Mediterranean and the Middle-Eastern regions are facing decisive challenges.
Our conference theme will be focusing on “Multilateral security in conflict and post-conflict
This theme will permeate through all aspects of conference. A great emphasis will be placed
on promoting common ground among our delegates and a global view to foster the
importance of civil societies in the international agenda.
MEDMUN not only promises a unique academic experience, but also an opportunity to build
friendships and network in a dynamic atmosphere. Thanks to our unique location on the
French Riviera, our participants enjoy each year a number of exciting social events in
Menton, Monaco and beyond.
I look forward to welcoming you to another exceptional conference in our little corner of the
Mediterranean Model United Nations 2020
