Join our Delegation to KU Leuven Model United Nations 2018
Hosted every spring in Leuven, the annual international Model UN conference with over 150 participants from all over Europe and the world. This year’s theme is: “Refocus: Changing the scene of international politics”.
This theme will help the participants discover the role of underexposed international organs and help everyone understand and perhaps appreciate their contributions to global society. The debated topics will also focus on subjects that do not appear on a regular manner on our mainstream media and/or clouded in a veil of secrecy.
KULMUN 2018 aims to present committees and topics that have not yet been the subject of many MUN simulations. This should confront delegates with situations they have not had the pleasure yet to debate and lobby about. For more information about KULMUN 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.
