SNS MODEL UNITED NATIONS

ABOUT SNS – MUN

Model United Nations is a simulation of the United Nations Organization. Students from various streams of study participate in this conference as delegates representing various countries and discuss global political, economic and social issues. This trend was started at Harvard University and is being successfully practiced across the globe.

SNS College of Technology has the pride and privilege of being the second college in Coimbatore to have its very own Model United Nations.

 

OBJECTIVE & CONTEXT

OBJECTIVE

The learning objectives of MUN Assemblies are to enable participants to:
• Gain insight into the workings of the United Nations and the dynamics of international relations by providing opportunities to assume the roles of UN representatives
• Understand relations between countries and particularly power relations between rich and poor countries
• Carry out in-depth research which will include geography, history, science and economics related to climate change and issues of global poverty and the MDGs
• Debate the issues that confront world leaders and draft resolutions in response to these global issues
• Develop and experience important social skills such as teamwork and group cooperation, conflict resolution, negotiation, consensus-building, critical thinking, public speaking and listening.

THE CONTEXT

A MUN Conference usually consists of various councils similar to that of the UNO. We had planned to hold two major councils, The UNGA (United Nations General Assembly) with the agenda “Armament Race and its Effects on World Peace and Security with special emphasis on Nuclear Weapon Proliferation” and The UNSC (United Nation Security Council) with the agenda “Continuous Crisis Committee in the Middle East”.
