DCMUN is a platform where delegates can gain insight of the working of the United Nations (UN) and the dynamics of International Relations by assuming the role of a representative of a specific country and being part of the ongoing conversation revolving around relevant global issues which they try to solve through discussions, debates and cooperation.
The participating youths develop their debating skills by the orientation of researched based discussion, negotiating skills by strengthening critical thinking skills, and resolution writing skills by concluding the discussed global issue in favor of future world. So, it is a practice for involving today’s youths in an intellectual debate over global concerns. The debates will be recorded, resolutions will be drafted to publish and broadcast via national news associations.

HOW THE EVENT WORKS?
Each student assumes the role of a UN delegate. After months of researching the political, economic, and diplomatic realities and stances of their chosen countries, students are invited to the Model United Nations conference for intimate briefings with the very diplomats they will be representing. This is all in preparation for the culminating conference, which brings together all delegates over three days to represent countries throughout the world. Recreating the structure of the UN, students work in committees to debate their position on today’s most pressing global issues with the collaboratively and creatively passing resolutions.
WHY IT MATTERS?
Through participating in Model UN, students emerge as leaders, having been exposed to critical global issues and international perspectives. They develop skills in communication, problem-solving and leadership while learning to cooperatively discuss and resolve broad issues.
