HamMUN (Hamburg Model United Nations) has set standards for Model UN Conferences worldwide during the past years. Hamburg Model United Nations is a Model UN Conference in the wonderful city of Hamburg that lasts four days. During the conference UN Committees as well as regional bodies, such as the African Union and the NATO, are simulated. In addition, we have created a thrilling cross-committee Crisis Simulation and a historical committee for the MUN-Veterans among you that will challenge every single delegate. Since 1998, students from in- and outside Germany travelled to Hamburg to participate in a Model UN Conference. In the course of the past 19 years, the HamMUN became the biggest conference of its kind in Germany, attracting MUN veterans, experts and newbies alike.
In 2018, more than 700 participants from all over the world were attracted by the HamMUN. We are proud that, many of those who joined the HamMUN once, did return in the following year. This leaves one, not only with Model United Nations but with the opportunity of reuniting with old friends and establishing new friendships across borders and perspectives. For many years, the HamMUN has stood out as one of the highlights of the MUN-year. We are working hard to make every single conference a little better than the one before.
The official language of the HamMUN is English. However, do not worry; you do not have to be a professional or native speaker. Rules of debate and diplomatic conduct can easily be learned, and if you’re feeling unsure, there is even a Rules Workshop provided for you.
From United Nations Human Rights Council to G20, from UN WOMEN to International Tribunal of the Law of the Sea, HamMUN 2019 provides a committee for everyone.
HamMUN’s committees offer three levels of experience: committees for beginners, intermediate and expert delegates as well as a crisis committee.
“Newbies” may join our beginner committees, where Chairs will focus on introducing their delegates to MUN, teaching new skills and knowledge of the Rules of Procedure.
MUN veterans may join our expert committees or crisis simulation, where they will need to prove their skills and experience in a challenging setting.
