Delegations

Heads of Delegations: Koen Kramer, Anne Boje, Olivia Mokko

 

Overview

 

The Permanent Delegation offers dedicated delegates the opportunity to receive intensive weekly training to develop research, public speaking, debating, critical thinking, writing, negotiation,  and cooperation skills to become successful delegates at Model United Nations conferences across Europe. The training involves a variety of workshops and debates. Delegates will have the honour of traveling to conferences representing the delegation and association as well as the university. Besides the weekly meetings there are also many socials as the PD is a team that trains and travels together so there is plenty of opportunity to bond with like-minded people. Apart from this, passive members will enjoy the possibility to participate in mock debates and become a part of the External Delegation attending MUN conferences as an irregular team.

What is an MUN?

 

Model United Nations is an academic and competitive simulation of the United Nations (and related organisations). Delegates  represent States, or political figures and take their standpoint to engage in debates on a variety of political or even economic or historical topics. MUNs are really all about the experience, the people you meet along the way, and the memories of the conferences!

The Permanent Delegation

The Permanent Delegation, or PD for short, is a team of highly motivated and dedicated students. The PD provides students the opportunity to participate in intensive training concerning the Model United Nations, where they will be able to expand and develop their skills in public speaking, diplomacy, debating, negotiation, lobbying, conflict resolution, resolution writing, and teamwork. Delegates will have special and highly rewarding opportunities to attend Model United Nations conferences, guest lectures, specialized debating workshops and debate competitions. Our team’s goal is for each member to have grown more comfortable and confident in their debating and public speaking skills, whilst learning how the real Model United Nations works. 

The PD is renowned throughout Europe as one of the most prestigious and most competitive delegations. Thus, we will be selecting a team of 20-25 highly motivated and hardworking students, who we expect to be committed to the delegation for the following year. It is mandatory for members to attend the weekly delegation meetings, 4 Model United Nations conferences within the academic year, a debating and public speaking workshop weekend in Brussels, and take part in a debate competition.
