What can you expect during this conference?

Every year, we organize a simulation for students of the UN General Assembly, the UN Security Council, the World Health Organization and the Human Rights Organization at the finest locations of the University of Antwerp. The concept of Model United Nations is used all around the world, and is the perfect way to overall strengthen your skills. 

Next to our main event, our Secondary School project organizes a MUN for high school students of Antwerp. We highly value supporting young people to debate and engage with global affairs, for which we feel the MUN is the perfect tool. 

Participating in such a simulation offers you a great opportunity to meet new people and to build an international network. During the coffee breaks there will be plenty of time to get to know your fellow participants and meet like-minded people. Furthermore, every evening a social event is organized during the main event itself, allowing you to blow off some steam after a day of negotiations. The karaoke night, the movie night and the gala ensure memories and friendships which will last a lifetime.

  • THE PROMOTION OF DURABLE PEACE AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT IN AFRICA -Over the last years, there have been major developments with regard to peace, security and development in Africa. The general assembly will talk and negotiate about key elements for institutional cooperation with the African Union. Also the political and economical relationship between countries in the African Union will be discussed and argued. Major subjects like conflict prevention, conflict management and peacekeeping will be on the agenda, as well as the questions on how to maintain sustainable economic growth and sustainable development in African countries. Here are a few questions to help you out: How can global leadership help create an enjoyable environment for all African societies? Why countries have shared responsibilities and what role do they play in promoting sustainable development? What are Africa’s priorities for sustainable development? Why is industrial development and action to boost manufacturing a necessity? Why is it important for developed countries to protect an especially vulnerable continent such as Africa?

  • THE IMPACT OF AIR POLLUTION ON HUMAN HEALTH AND HOW TO PREVENT IT Every year, around 7 million people die of the consequences of air pollution. The biggest part of the victims of air pollution are children. This issue calls for a global response to prevent diseases and deaths. Succesful air pollution reduction would not only benefit the health of people, but would also benefit development and the climate. Delegates of the World Health Organisation will need to tackle the issue of the impact of air pollution on human health and how to prevent it.

Topics

  • THE FUTURE OF GOVERNANCE IN THE ARCTIC Arctic boundaries are difficult to draw. The delineation of boundaries between Arctic states remains therefore an unresolved matter. Climate change has made that this region is increasingly accessible, both for possible energy exploitation and for maritime trade routes. The Arctic constitutes one of the planet’s last frontiers, and all states bordering it are racing to make sure they will get their piece of the action. This region entails very serious issues of military security, energy security, environmental security and governance. Representatives in the Security Council will try to negotiate about the future of governance in the Arctic.
Human Rights Council

Topics

  • THE DISPLACEMENT OF MINORITIES In this committee, the question of the protection of internally displaced minorities will be addressed. Most of the displaced populations in humanitarian situations in the world today are persons belonging to minorities. How can minorities be protected against over layering with other populations? What legal or official status do minorities have? How can the forcible transfer of populations be minimized? What rights do minorities have in situations of conflict? The representatives in the Human Rights Council will address these questions.
