2nd RMLNLU Model United Nations Conference
Dr. Ram Manohar Lohiya National Law University, Lucknow is pleased to announce that the II RMLNLU Model United Nations would be held from 18th-19th March 2017.
Background of the Competition
Model United Nations (MUN) Conference is an academic simulation of the United Nations that aims to educate participants about current events, topics in international relations, diplomacy and the United Nations agenda. The participants role-play as diplomats representing a nation or NGO in a simulated session of a committee of the United Nations, such as the Security Council or the General Assembly. Participants research a country, take on roles as diplomats, investigate international issues, debate, deliberate, consult, and then develop solutions to world problems. It involves and inculcates researching, public speaking, debating along with critical thinking, teamwork and leadership skills. Participants in Model UN conferences, known as delegates, are placed in committees and assigned countries, or occasionally other organizations or political figures, where they represent members of that body. They are presented with a topic or topics that their committee will discuss, in advance. Delegates conduct research before conferences and formulate positions that they will then debate with their fellow delegates in the committee, staying true to the actual position of the member they represent. At the end of a conference, the best performing delegates in each committee, as well as delegations, are sometimes recognized with awards. An MUN Conference is a great way for young speakers to indulge in a formal format of debate where everyone gets a chance to voice their opinion while simultaneously learning about international issues and the politics involved. It is a trending and upcoming form of debate, and students from schools and colleges everywhere are actively participating in it.
By simulating the United Nations, we encourage knowledge of international affairs, research, understanding of parliamentary procedures, analytical reasoning, problem solving, professionalism in negotiation, oral and written presentation of ideas, etc. By working together as a team, drawing from the past and present, we are preparing youth for the future and we empower them to be a part of decision making at all levels.
