Naresuan University - Model United Nations (NU-MUN):
A New Pathway to Global Education and Citizens
Model United Nations is an educational simulation of the United Nations which aims to enable students to advance their understanding of the United Nations, international relations, diplomacy and contemporary global issues such as Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), climate change, child soldiers, civil war in Syria, the Ukraine-Russia war, poverty and inequality, human trafficking, and so on. The participants or the delegates at the Model UN will gain insights into the UN and the dynamics of international relations by embracing the roles of UN representatives and members of UN-affiliated international institutions. This is an exciting opportunity to debate issues that confront world leaders, draft resolutions in response to global issues, and work with others who are equally motivated and passionate advocates.
The Model UN aims to positively affect students’ lives and prepare them to be better global citizens through quality educational experiences emphasizing collaboration and cooperative conflict resolutions. Students will
- Develop a deeper knowledge of current global issues and improve critical thinking;
- Strengthen their diplomacy skills and develop ideas to solve current international problems;
- Improve researching, public speaking, debating, and writing skills (in addition to critical thinking, teamwork, and leadership abilities); and
- Improve their international exposure by gaining experiences from delegates across the world.
