Model United Nations (MUN) is an activity which students take part in as delegates and simulate the UN. Participants have to follow the Rules of Procedure (ROP) in the conference and discuss global issues.
Delegates have to give speeches to elaborate the positions of countries they are representing based on policies. Also delegates have to exchange their opinions with others through debating and lobbying.Then delegates write draft resolutions (DR). At last, delegates would vote on the DRs.
The main goal of MUN is to give students a chance to understand the international situations, making students view global issues at objective positions, promoting the interchange of students from all over the world, and broaden the horizons of the students.
Nowadays, there are dozens of international MUN conference around the world, and there are myriads of local conferences each year.
The predecessor of MUN was the Model League of Nations, and the first recorded Model League of Nations
was held by Harvard University. In 1946, after the Second World War, the League of Nations was dissolved and the United Nations was established. The next year, Model League of Nations changed into MUN.
In 1956, Frederick Chien(錢復), the former Minister of Foreign Affairs, held the first MUN conference when he was at school. In 1999, the first MUN club in Taiwan, National Taiwan University Model United Nations (NTUMUN) was founded, and numerous MUN activities have been held since then. In 2007, NTUMUN organized High School Model United Nations camp, offering high school students an opportunity to participate in MUN. In recent years, MUN clubs began more and more popular among high schools in Taiwan, and we hope we could lead the way and make progress in the future!
