MUNiM Model United Nations Conference hosted by the United World College in Mostar. The conference will take place March 23rd through 21st, 2015, in Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina. Our conference seeks to extend the mission of United World College to promote peace and understanding through education, debate, and discussion. As such we warmly invite you to join us for a weekend filled with stimulating debate, exciting crisis committees, and thoughtful negotiation on the world's most pressing issues. In addition to the more academic experiences, we will also provide recreational and social events to promote a fun multicultural delegate experience where delegates from all over the world can meet.

This year’s conference will again take place in the beautiful historic city of Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina. The historic town of Mostar developed in the 15th century as an Ottoman frontier town and is a city with a rich history and strong cultural diversity. Mostar is home to the Unesco World Heritage Old Bridge, Stari Most, and United World College, which hosts around 200 students from 60 countries of the world.

We are hard at work preparing our conference to ensure that the standard of this conference and our commitment to the delegates is of the highest quality. This year’s conference has a general theme “Tipping Points in International Politics” promoting critical thinking along high tension issues. This theme will be promoted in 6 different councils: Security Council, World Trade Organization, Historical (focusing on the Conference of Berlin), Environmental, European Union, and Human Rights. Each council will be run by specially trained student chairs that will help to shape the flow of the debate and provide useful insight and feedback for delegates. Each council will cover a multitude of topics related to the general theme and present day situations designed to test the delegates’ abilities to articulate arguments, expand their perspective on global affairs, and gain experience in negotiation and collaboration.

Meet the Team!
