The Seminar

The Seminar

To present a country of the United Nations, you will need certain knowledge. Thus, the new “diplomats” gather every Wednesday night (ca. 6pm-9pm) to discuss and learn about topics related to the UN. We usually finish this meeting in the non-political environment of Unitheke.

At first, this seminar will teach you the basics about the United Nations: history, structure and functioning of the UN. After that, we will turn to more specific topics: security, economy, development, as well as the UN’s goals in general. Over the course of this seminar, the participants are going to focus on the country that they eventually represent in New York. They will get to know that country’s domestic and foreign policy, its history, as well as its ambitions with the UN in order to represent it in the most authentic way possible.

will be supported by MadMUN alumni, who organize it and on top of that are always happy to offer you a helping hand!

prepares you for the various simulations
