In this era of globalization, it’s important to keep a finger on the pulse of the world.MUN or Model United Nations is an extra – curricular activity where students exercise in research, public speaking and team work and they typically role – play delegates of the United Nations and simulate UN committees.(Model United Nations) is exactly as the name suggests – a recreation of the United Nations and how it functions.
The United Nations is an intergovernmental organization tasked to promote international cooperation and to create and maintain international order.
On 12 and 13 of April 2019, IES Kuwait sent out 14 of its best diplomats to the newest session of FAIPS-MUN 2019 hosted by FAIPS-DPS Kuwait. An experience in itself, from the arrival to departure, it was a thrilling and exhilarating opportunity for thenew starlets to shine through.
FMUN had 4 committees working for the two days of conference with over 100 Delegates. The committees and agendas of this year sessions included:
- Legal Committee –State sponsored terrorism
- Commission for the status of women – women in military
- UN Security Council- Cyberwarfare and Cyberterrorism
- And lastly, The European Union –Brexit
Whether it may be the advent of curbing the evils of state sponsored terrorism or the ongoing crisis in Britain, or even dealing with the new age issues of cyberwarfare and cyberterrorism or protecting and encouraging women in all phases of life including the military, all of them could definitely say with pride and pleasure that this, would be one of the finest moments in our lives,as all the experienced delegateshad come back with another achievement under their name whereas the young , new delegates came back with the first taste of the MUN circuit and now hopes for more opportunities!
Fortunately, that is not the only thing Bhavans had returned back with! Bhavans has been awarded the overall champion “BEST DELEGATION” for another successful year in a row! IES KUWAIT hopes to set their mark in MUN history and expand uncontrollably with no bound limits!
