Population: Demographic Trends Upending Global Societies

Mediterranean Model United Nations, MEDMUN, is a challenging, student-run United Nations simulation hosted by Science Po Paris' Middle East and Mediterranean campus in Menton. It tackles the complex political, economic and social issues facing the countries of the Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, and North African region today. We are set to welcome nearly 350 students again in 2017 for an exciting conference that delves into the theme « Population : demographic trends upending global societies », covering the implications of rapid population growth, refugee crises, and humanities growing footprint. This year’s conference will continue to work in four languages: English, French, Italian and Arabic. Committees will operate in an integrated way featuring a real-time crisis and International Court of Justice simulations as well as an interconnected press network.
