A Model UN conference is an academic simulation of the United Nations, with the primary objective of educating the youth on matters of international importance, and helping them develop skills such as leadership, oratory, public speaking, and diplomacy.
Model United Nation Conferences have become a prestigious competitions though out our country held in different universities and colleges. Hence we believe our college having an Intra Conference is an initial step.
The conference was held on 17th and 18th (Friday & Saturday) February. Around 200+ delegates participated in the MUN who were divided into three different councils.
- United Nations General Assembly - Disarmament and International Security
- United Nations - Security Council
- United Nations Human Rights Council
UNGA (United Nations General Assembly)
The 1st committee of the General Assembly had discussions on the agenda " Arms Race and Disarmament with emphasis on South Asia and Middle East". Most of the delegates would agree that this was the most active and indulging committee wherein the ideas proposed and the level of debate clearly stood apart and that's only Because of the delegate's sheer interest and enthusiasm throughout the MUN. The delegates deliberated on various topics such as- The need of Arms & Weapons and The Non Proliferation Treaty (NPT). The Executive Board Members Mr.Prajwal and Mr. Sai Ram made the first time MUN experience of almost all the delegates a memorable one and for enkindling in them the fire to participate in many more such MUN's.
UNHRC (United Nations Human Rights Council)
The committee's agenda stood true to its name i.e. Protection of women rights with emphasis on South Asia as we saw healthy debate and solutions put forth by the delegates which not only reflected the need of the hour but also emphasized on the impact it has on the youth of this generation. Active participation and thorough guidance by the executive board members Mr.Vansh Narula and Mr. Anusha K were the highlights of this committee.
UNSC (United Nations Security Council)
United Nations Security Council was a double delegation, wherein delegates formed a team of 2 and represent one country. The delegates discussed on the agenda “Situation in Kashmir”. This council had 40 delegates representing 20 countries and underwent complex debates which included making Kashmir a sovereign nation, reforms in treaties which would help the situation over there and discussed about laws such as AFSPA.
The whole MUN was a great learning experience for all the delegates.
