Fostering global communications in a fracturing world

The waiting time is finally over! The Economic Faculty association Rotterdam (EFR) in cooperation with Erasmus School of Economics (ESE) is honored to present to you the second edition of the Model United Nations in the beautiful city of Rotterdam! This multicultural city that breathes diversity is the perfect place to organize a MUN with contentious debates, wrought-up emotions and progressive resolutions. Sporting five committees and a press corps, this MUN caters the needs of MUN veterans, experts and newbies alike.
Furthermore be ready to have a thrilling time outside of the conference rooms too: lunches and social drinks to get to know your fellow delegates from all around the globe!

EFR has lots of experience when it comes to MUNs, and after training numerous delegates over the years and sending delegations to various MUNs all over the world, the time has come to establish its own MUN, focusing on the perfect mixture of debating, exchanging views and social events.

The whole conference will take place on campus of the prestigious Erasmus University Rotterdam and Erasmus School of Economics from March 19th to March 21st, 2020.
