What is Model United Nations?
Model United Nations, or MUN for short, is a student-led simulation of the United Nations. Students represent various countries and debate current and pressing issues. Before the conference, students are responsible for conducting research on their topics and investigating their country's positions. During the conference, they assume their roles as diplomats and represent their delegation's contemporary views and policies. Delegates write, debate and try to pass resolutions that support their position.
Model United Nations is a great opportunity for student to be more aware of what is happening globally and become better critical thinkers. It is imperative that students embody their country's positions in order to answer tough questions and defend their position well. Participants learn to negotiate and make compromises in order to reach a consensus.
It is a challenging experience but students always leave with more self-confidence in their abilities and their potential to change global thinking.
BRAMUN is the epitome of English-speaking Model United Nations in South America, and provides all the opportunities necessary for new and experienced delegates to be successful and have a great time.
