Multilateral Security in Conflict and Post-Conflict Zones

MEDMUN is a challenging, student-run simulation of the United Nations hosted by Sciences Po Paris’ Middle East and Mediterranean campus in Menton. We are set to welcome nearly 300 students again in 2020 for an exciting conference that delves into the theme “Multilateral Security in Conflict and Post-Conflict Zones.” Held in one of Europe’s leading political science and international relations universities, as well as one of France's “Grandes Écoles,” MEDMUN attracts distinguished university and high school students from all over the world. Thanks to this diversity, MEDMUN is able to simulate the international atmosphere of the United Nations and provides delegates with an intellectually and culturally stimulating experience.

Crisis 2020 : Saudi Arabia vs. Iran
Crisis 2020 : Saudi Arabia vs. Iran

Topics

  • The recent attacks on Saudi oil installations are deemed as the last straw for Saudi and its allies in their hostile relations with the theocratic regime. Both sides build up their forces as tensions rise, as Iran knows that the attacks have lent a warrant for a declaration of war against them. In a coordinated move, Saudi Arabia declares war on Iran, hoping that its allies in the anti-Iran coalition will do the same. Iran calls upon its own allies to meet this threat, hoping to solidify strong regional support in the conflict to come. The crisis starts off after the initial attack of Saudi Arabia against a critical airfield and base near Bandar Abbas, which unintentionally kills around 300 civilians. This kicks off the war but rallies domestic opposition in America - and the new president is hesitant to get involved. While each nations has allies and affiliated nations, they must work to persuade these countries to get involved. Flex your diplomacy and military strategy muscles with this tense and intriguing geopolitical conflict this year at MEDMUN!

  • The year is 2050 and the violence between Palestine and Israel has only increased as the weather has begun to warm. Just recently, a young climate refugee residing in Palestine was shot as he crossed the border back into Palestine upon seeking safe drinking water from an Israeli desalination plant. Since then, violence between the two states has increased dramatically, officially reaching “Intifada” level. How can we put an end to this conflict? How should resources in the region be allocated? What measures should be taken to curb the already evident effects of climate change? Who are the responsible parties?

  • "Nous trouverons un chemin ... ou nous en créerons un." - Hannibal, La Traversée des Alpes - 212 av.JC
  • La deuxième guerre punique, également désignée comme la guerre d’Hannibal et par les Romains comme la guerre contre Hannibal, est la seconde des trois guerres puniques entre l’Ancienne Carthage et la République Romaine. Dix-sept ans de combats à travers toute la Méditerranée occidentale, cette guerre est considérée par les historiens antiques comme la plus grande guerre de l’histoire. Elle a été menée avec des ressources, du talent et de la haine sans précédent. Elle a vu des centaines de milliers de morts, certaines des batailles les plus sanglantes de l’histoire, la destruction de cités, et le l’asservissement ainsi que le massacre de civils au sein des populations des deux côtés. Rejoignez-nous cette année à MEDMUN en simulant ces grandes prousses tactiques qui allient stratégies militaire et politique!
