Join our Delegation to IE University Model United Nations 2020
IEUMUN 2020 is a virtual Model United Nations taking place online this October. Considering the current circumstances, they have chosen to take advantage of technology to unite delegates around the world whilst taking care of our safety. The Conference is a platform where each and every one of you can contribute to the creation of new solutions for current issues, regardless of your location or age.
The conference will simulate 3 committees from the UN: The United Nations Security Council (UNSC), the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), and the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP). For two days delegates will be discussing pressing issues such as the Crisis in Yemen, the protection of refugees in a post-pandemic world and low carbon and climate resilient development in developing countries.

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.
