Twenty-sixth edition April 2023!

Haarlem Model United Nations is a non-profit organisation run by students of the Stedelijk Gymnasium Haarlem. For over twenty years, we have organised a conference that is attended by about 600 students from all over the world. 

All our applications are now open! Visit our site for all the information.

Model United Nations, also known as Model UN or MUN, is an educational simulation in which students can learn about diplomacy, international relations, and the United Nations. MUN involves and teaches researching, public speaking, debating, and writing skills, in addition to critical thinking, teamwork, and leadership abilities.”  – Wikipedia 

During a MUN conference, students will roleplay delegates to the United Nations and simulate UN committees. The participants will be assigned countries, or occasionally a non-governmental organisation /other political entity, to represent in various committees, councils and assemblies, similar to the ones of the real United Nations. The delegates are responsible for taking on the views of the country or organisation they are representing, and it is up to them to make sure they keep that policy. 

Delegates will solve the issues on the agenda by lobbying, followed by making resolutions. Once a resolution has been submitted, it will be debated by the committee and can be amended. This can be done by the delegates, who send in amendments to add, change or strike clauses. The amendments will then in turn be debated and will be voted upon afterwards. Once the debating time for the resolution has elapsed, the committee will vote on the resolution as a whole. 

No ‘real’ actions will be taken as a result of the produced resolutions. However, a MUN conference can serve as a great learning opportunity and a MUN-weekend can also be a lot of fun as there is the possibility to become friends with interesting people from all over the world.
