16th Annual Model United Nations Conference at ISS

ISS welcomed over 400 delegates to the 16th annual Model United Nations Conference with guest speakers from the US Foreign Service and the European Parliament. The chosen theme for this year’s conference is “the balance and distribution of power in the world” focusing on the UN Sustainable Development Goal 16: “Peace Justice, and Strong Institutions.”

A Model United Nations (MUN) Conference is a simulated session of the United Nations in which the participants adopt the role of Delegates to the UN. In simulated UN bodies, for example the Security Council or the General Assembly, the delegates debate international issues, reach compromise solutions and then pass resolutions.
