Letter from the Secretary General
It is my greatest pleasure to welcome you to the first edition of DMUN: a MUN with a difference.
Personally, MUNs have been an overcrowding of formalities and strict procedure, hence leaving the true goal of the United Nations to be forgotten which is to solve global issues while encouraging diplomatic negotiations. This is where we are different. DMUN ‘18 focuses on what truly matters – solutions.
With the support of our beloved principal, Shanthi Menon, my team and I have worked tirelessly to make this conference one worth remembering. This year, we have introduced six exciting committees, two of which are fictitious, to create engaging discussions which aim at solving our world’s most pressing issues.
Whether you are a first-timer or a MUN veteran, you will definitely learn something from this conference. This MUN will test your problem solving skills and diplomacy in a pressurized, goal oriented environment.
The DISEC and Security Council are mainstays of any MUN and they are carried forward at DMUN 18 with nail biting agendas involving demilitarization, and prevention of another catastrophic world war. The oil rich gulf nations have a committee of their own, the League of Arab Nations, to focus specifically on solving the grave problems plaguing their region which are usually overlooked.
The Advocatus Conclave, the moot court, makes an important appearance in this conference as we solve bilateral problems on a legal basis.
Fast paced and filled with unexpected updates, the Continual Crisis Committee is set to be one of the most thrilling committees ever witnessed. Finally, the Marvel Summit transports you to a fictional world that we all know and love.
I am looking forward to two days filled with stimulating discussions, enthralling debates and pragmatic resolutions.
See you soon.
