MalayaMUN 2018

MalayaMUN International

The Future in Your Hands

MalayaMUN International 2018 is the inaugural Model UN Conference organized by the most prestigious University in Malaysia, the University of Malaya. It is a pioneering Model UN Conference that was conceived with one vision - The evolution and elevation of the Model United Nations experience.


For the first time in Model UN history, we are introducing Inter-Council interactions - where your actions can alter the course of other councils - and Choice-Based Outcomes - where your choices will affect the fate of the world. All of this available in our dedicated conference app - powered by Whova. 


Inter-Council Interactions

At MalayaMUN International, each committee and council has been carefully chosen to ensure they require the highest level of inter-dependency and hence strategy. Every speech, press-statement, news report and resolution you make will have an impact on other committees and councils. 

To do this, we used a novel approach to conference academics. Instead of having arbitrary topics for each committee and council, we have set up 6 General Issues that can lead to a completely dire future. However, in the context of each committee and council, they will be shaped into a specific topic.


This ensures that every council is inter-related and moves towards the same goal - A better future

The 6 conference wide general issues are; 

1. Terrorism
2. Cryptocurrencies
3. Weapons of Mass Destruction
4. Regional Instability
5.Refugee Crisis
6.Peacekeeping

After the end of our early bird registration, we will be taking a poll to decide which 3 General issues the delegates of MalayaMUN International decides is most important to discuss on. Once the 3 Issues are decided, the specific topics under these issues will be announced for each council. 

Choice-Based Outcomes

An Inter-Connected high strategy academic structure cannot work without the inter-play between decisions and consequences. Hence, at MalayaMUN International, we decided to make the entire conference into an RPG game - so to speak. 

The decisions in the form of speeches, press statements and resolutions that delegates take, will lead towards 1 out of 4 pre-determined outcomes - Only two of which, lead to a better future. Each council and committee will progress towards an outcome depending on their developments. The aggregate of all the council's progress will give us the final outcome for the conference. 

At the closing ceremony we will then display to you in the form of a video, the future that all of you combined, working together with the highest level of cooperation or the lack-thereof , have achieved. 

We give you the platform, it is up to you to decide which future you want

The conference will host around 1000 delegates from all around the world, and will take place from 15th-18th November 2018, at the spectacular Pullman Hotel Bangsar, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
