Join our Delegation to Model United Nations of the Complutense University of Madrid 2018
The Model United Nations of the Complutense University of Madrid (COMPIMUN) has been up and running since 2016, this being its third edition. It has been a meeting place for young people where critical and constructive thinking has been fostered on a national level. But this year they are shifting towards an international focus!
COMPIMUN offers the opportunity to get involved in life, to talk about the margins on issues that otherwise seem unattainable, to come up with solutions to pressing issues, and to meet people from all over the world. For more information about CompiMUN 2018 click here.

Overview of MUNs
Model UNs are simulations of conferences of the United Nations for students from all around the world, held in nearly every country.
In these conferences, each student takes on the role of “delegate” of a country and debates for that country’s interests regarding specific topics. The conferences are divided into different committees, to reflect the different bodies the UN is comprised of. Each delegate is also assigned a committee, and each committee discusses issues of global relevance.

The MUN Training sessions will cover a general introduction to how an MUN is structured, its Rules of Procedure (RoP), how to conduct research, how to write position papers and clauses, public speaking (prepared and improvised speeches), and lobbying.
A second component of the preparation of the Invictus delegations are the MUN simulations. Multiple simulations are conducted to instruct each delegate. In this way the delegate is prepared to follow the procedure of the conference while using all the necessary formalisms, to deliver successful speeches, and to be the centre of the lobbying process.
Through this training delegates will be prepared to participate and excel in MUN Conferences. Join us and improve your public speaking, research, writing skills, and learn in depth about the world’s most arduous challenges.
