About the Conference

Thammasat University Model United Nations (TUMUN) Conference was the first university-level conference of simulation of the United Nations in Thailand. It was first held by the student management team of the TUMUN club in 2015. They aimed to provide opportunities for youths at both international and national level. The conference brings the like-minded together: those who are passionate about international disputes; those who seek to better the world; those who are aspired to solve the problems; and those who wish to be a part of a change bigger than themselves. This conference will enable students to self-development as their academics will be challenged and their social skills will be contested. Consequently, the TUMUN teams have been very active in order to ensure such an opportunity for four succeeding years.

In the past four years, TUMUN Conference welcomed about 80-100 participants from both high school and university levels. Delegates and observers were from diverse background ranging from students in Thai educational system to students from foreign countries such as the Philippines, Indonesia, Myanmar, Singapore, Vietnam, Japan, Bangladesh, France, Russia, and Poland.

To raise the awareness about Thai MUN in international level,TUMUN has partnered up with many MUN Conferences in the past such as Singapore Model United Nations (SMUN) from the National University of Singapore; the University of Gadjah Mada Model of the United Nations Community (UGMMUN Community) from the University of Gadjah Mada in Indonesia; The Dasmariñas Model United Nations (DMUN) from the De La Salle University - Dasmariñas, respectively. The partner MUN will facilitate a committee in the TUMUN Conference as well as an exchange of delegates. 

Approaching its fifth Conference in this 2019

Therefore, the fifth TUMUN Conference which will be held from 11th to 13rd of January 2019 clearly continues the success of its predecessors and reinforces its role as a leading channel for youths to creatively and critically become the world leaders who successfully solve the unsolvable global issues.

About the Organizing Team

Thammasat University Model United Nations was founded in 2011 by a group of young and passionate Thammasat students who have experienced MUN conferences abroad before and wish to open the window of opportunities for those students who MUN was their total stranger. Initially, the beginning of their quest was to develop leadership and competence of young people by recruiting them to attend MUN conferences abroad such as Harvard National Model United Nations, Harvard World Model United Nations, and Cambridge University International Model United Nations. During these discussions, delegates will leave their comfort zone and challenge themselves to the limit, thus, enhancing their analytical thinking skill, public speaking skill, and their boost up their confidence.
