Model United Nations - Seminar und Planspiel

Geneva International Model United Nations 2018

Das Projekt "International Model United Nations" wurde vor über 10 Jahren von einer damaligen Studentin initiiert. Seitdem nehmen Studierende unseres Instituts regelmäßig an internationalen und nationalen Simulationen der Vereinten Nationen teil (Harvard World MUN, Geneva International MUN, HamMUN). Die Exkursionen werden in einem studentisch geleiteten Seminar (VM5, Master Grundlagen- und Vertiefungsmodul) vorbereitet. Das Vorbereitungsseminar wird durch Prof. Dr. Christiane Lemke und Natalia Dalmer inhaltlich und organisatorisch begleitet.

Auch in diesem Jahr haben interessierte Studierende die Möglichkeit, sich in einem Seminar gemeinsam auf die Teilnahme am "Model United Nations"-Planspiel vorzubereiten. Im März 2018 können sie dann "Delegierte" der renommierten Geneva International Model United Nations werden.

Kommentar:

Would you like to step in the shoes of a diplomat, pretend to negotiate with other state representatives a resolution related to environment, human, rights, or security, hone your debating skills, and improve on your knowledge of the UN system, specifically, and international law or policies, more generally? Then you should sign up for this seminar which prepares you to participate in the Geneva International Model United Nations Conference in March 2017, where you and other students from around the world will simulate UN negotiations and represent the political interests of a specific country in different UN bodies (e.g., Security Council, WHO, or UNHCR). Prior to the Geneva conference, students will participate in the national Model United Nations Conference in Hamburg.

Contrary to other seminars, you will be in charge and responsible for acquiring the substantive expertise needed to exert influence on the negotiations as well as organizing and planning the trip. As every year, we will endeavour to get financial support for the trip. To take part in the seminar and the conference, good English skills are required.

If you want to participate in Geneva MUN, please apply until October 26th with a motivation letter (in English, approx. 500 words). Precondition for financial support is the participation in Hamburg MUN, which will take place in winter 2016. Please note: You can acquire a "Studienleistung" and credit points for "Schlüsselkompetenzen" but no "Prüfungsleistung" in this seminar.

The number of participants in the seminar is limited to 25. You can participate in the seminar without participating in GIMUN.

What should I write in my motivation letter?

  • Short self introduction
  • Previous participation in MUN or other simulations, if any
  • previous experiences related to the UN and international organizations, if any (e.g. internships, seminars)
  • Reasons why you are interested in MUN simulations and why you want to participate in the MUN project
  • 250-500 words

Important: Deadline for applications is October 26th, 2016. We continuously confirm your applications during the application period. Our delegation is limited to 7 students and we can not guarantee if free places will be left at the end of the application period
