5th Heidelberg National MUN Conference 2015
The 5th Heidelberg National MUN conference
will take place in Heidelberg from
Saturday to Sunday, January 10-11, 2015,
at the Neue Universität building in the heart of Heidelberg's beautiful old town.
Registration is closed!
Committee ans country assignments have be sent out -
so please check your mailboxes
and contact us if you have not received yours!
The conference will feature two committees:
A. Security Council (as single delegate committee)
*** COMMITTEE IS FULL ***
Topic: Containing the Islamic State
The Arab Spring raised hopes for an era of peace and democratization for the middle east. Many however, were disillusioned by the political struggles in Egypt and Libya, as well as the civil war raging in Syria. This disillusionment has contributed to the rapid rise of the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant, which proclaimed a worldwide Islamic caliphate on 29 June 2014, and has since then committed uncountable human rights violations and war atrocities.
More info on the topic and about the SC chair at Heidelberg National MUN 2015 can be found here.
B. United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) (as double delegate committee) *** FEW SEATS REMAINING ***
Topic: Development through Fair Trade
The pros and cons of trade liberalization are on the agenda again. After several years of a stalling WTO, new attempts have been initiated. Dividing the world, the questions about benefits through (fair?) trade are not easy to answer.
