Model United Nations (MUN)

Model United Nations (MUN)
Model United Nations (MUN) is an activity in which students role play delegates from UN member states and simulate UN committees where current issues are debated. This activity takes place at MUN conferences, which are organised by many schools and universities.
Taking part in MUN is a multi-faceted learning experience for students. It calls upon students to hone their research skills; increases knowledge of international relations and global politics to a very high level and displays to them in detail how world bodies such as the UN work. Critical thinking skills and debating are also core to the MUN programme.
We in Blackrock ETSS are delighted to take part in this year's MUN Conference 2022 entitled " Finding a progressive vision for a divided world". This conference will take place on Friday 29 April 2022. Participation in the MUN is open to any interested students in the school. We have a very hardworking team this year who are busy at work reading up on their briefing papers.
Our delegates have been assigned China as our country to represent. We are busily working away researching foreign policies and international relations; climate and green issues; nuclear disarmament and energy; human rights and penal systems, and China's place on the UN Security Council.
We have contacted the Chinese Embassy and have been invited to submit questions to the Embassy which our students have following on from their research. We will also be visiting the Embassy and meeting with Embassy staff. We look forward to writing our resolutions and discussing them at UN Committee level in the conference.
