Model UN

Model United Nations, 2013

Above: Students prepare for the 2013 MUN conference.

The Model United Nations is a society which debates and discusses politics, sociology and economics.

The St Peter’s MUN normally meets weekly as part of the co-curricular programme, in preparation for an international conference over a weekend in late March.

This is a conference of over 400 students from 25 schools where world issues are debated and motions put and voted on in the style of the United Nations Assembly and its committees.

MUN Societies thrive at many academic schools and at universities. Besides giving students knowledge and understanding of international political and geographical issues they foster skills of public speaking, debate, lobbying, negotiation and compromise.
