MODEL UNITED NATIONS
Model United Nations (MUN) is an educational simulation of the United Nations that aims to educate all participants about current events, topics in international relations, diplomacy, and the United Nations agenda. The participants, or delegates, serve as diplomats representing a nation or NGO in a simulated session of a committee of the United Nations, such as the Security Council or the General Assembly. Participants research a country, take on roles as diplomats, investigate international issues, debate, consult, and then develop solutions to current world issues.
Hsinchu Model United Nations (HSINMUN) was originally a small local conference organized by the Administration Office of IBSH for schools around Hsinchu City in the early 2000s. In a few years, the popularity of Model United Nations soared, which brought many new schools with MUN programs all around the island to join HSINMUN. 2016 was an eventful year: HSINMUN was extended from being a two days conference to a three days conference, and expanded from being a national MUN conference to an international MUN conference (with schools outside of Asia participating). However, most importantly of all, HSINMUN gained the prestigious THIMUN affiliation. Considering that THIMUN affiliation statuses are only granted to conferences that hold the highest quality and the standards recognized by the THIMUN Foundation, it is our honor to be able to fully represent the organization in the east Asian region and to provide the participants a higher caliber of debate and a greater understanding of global issues.
