The Research Chair in SDGs-Peace collaborates with AL-MUN, a student association at the University of Alicante, in order to organise a Model United Nations (MUN) in Alicante in 2020. A Model United Nations is a simulation in which students from several schools or universities take on the role of diplomats who represent UN member states. In preparation for the event they must investigate the topics that will be covered there, in the fields of domestic and foreign affairs, economy and society, so they can debate and solve issues that are actually dealt with in UN bodies and committees.
The AL-MUN will be held at the University of Alicante from 2 to 4 April 2020. About 200 students from all over the world are expected to take part.
Besides providing financial support, the Research Chair assists Alicante MUN members with the previous training activities. The three topics to be discussed at the AL-MUN will be:
UN WOMEN Topics
Role of the women in the world
WHO (In English) Topics
Solutions to the health inequality
Disarmament and International Security Committee (DISEC) in English Topics
