Model United Nations Universität Erfurt

What is MUN?

Model United Nations (MUN) conferences are academic simulations of the United Nations. Students take on the roles of diplomats and simulate the work of the United Nations and its various committees. 

At national and international MUN conferences participants from all throughout the world discuss challenging and educational topics, negotiate and finally write resolutions.

MUN conferences are based upon the diplomatic work ethic and procedure of the United Nations and the UN Charter. Conferences are generally held in English. 

Participating in MUN conferences enables students to broaden their understanding of the United Nations system and its intercultural dialogue. Furthermore it allows them to experience complex processes of international politics and provides training in research, rhetorics, negotiation and language skills. 

Worldwide there are more than 400 MUN conferences. The largest and most well-known simulation for students is the yearly National Model United Nations conference (NMUN) in New York City.

Students at the University Erfurt can take the seminar as part of their classes for Studium Fundamentale. Additionally, they will participate in the yearly EfMUN conference, which is hosted by Akademische Simulation Erfurt e.V.
