From Political to Humanitarian - Managing Modern Crises

It is an honour to welcome you to the third edition of Cardiff University International Model United Nations (CardiffMUN)! Each year, our themes have targeted pressing and divisive issues such as the peaceful coexistence of different cultures in an intertwined world and the sustainable development of our society and resources. This year our theme is "From Political to Humanitarian - Managing Modern Crises". As we have seen in recent months, crises are becoming more frequent and potent, raising issues and concerns that affect us all. It is time to change the way we approach them, to redefine leadership and to take the world forward with new ideas and solutions.
