Pressing Pause - The Paradox of Pace in Politics

Pressing pause in a time, which is as fast moving as it could ever be. Pressing pause in a time, when it is necessary to take a step back, to see the bigger picture. Do not stop, but do not accelerate either.

To MUIMUN itself, this conference topic means something special: Where have the past nine years gone? How far have we come in these years? It feels like ages ago that MUIMUN was founded, but at the same time wasn’t it just yesterday? It certainly feels surreal to hold the 10th conference in upcoming March. However, there is nothing but fond memories. And we are ready to make new ones with you. And hopefully you will notice: Sometimes a single session might feel like as it lasts for ages, but the entire week will feel like as it did not last longer than a snap with your fingers. Just press pause and experience the paradox of pace.
