Model UN for High Schools (American University)

Your school is invited to attend the fifth session of the American University Model United Nations Conference (AmeriMUNC). Early next year, February 2-4, 2018, AmeriMUNC will be held on American University's campus in Washington, DC. These summer months -- July and August -- are the time to get your principal and social studies department chair enthused about this great experience for your students.
AmeriMUNC provides high school students with the opportunity to engage in international relations beyond the classroom. In the spirit of this mission, they urge students to think creatively about our world's problems. AmeriMUNC in this cycle has the theme, "Forced Migration: Globalization in the Face of Conflict." Students participating in simulations of the UN General Assemblies, Security Council, and National Cabinets will be tasked with resolving various issues concerning the movement of people, along with any crises that may arise. In this realistic simulation, the actions of one committee or country have the potential to influence debate across all the committees.
Over the span of three days, the Model UN fosters excitement towards education on global issues while developing students' skills in leadership, diplomacy, research, and public speaking. In keeping with the AmeriMUNC tradition, thhis conference offers novice, veteran, and advanced committees -- each tailored to accommodate students of varying experience levels, thus ensuring that each student leaves the conference more confident in their skills and knowledgeable on the issues.
Throughout the conference, students will have the opportunity to hear from committee-specific guest speakers from Washington’s academic institutions, think tanks, government agencies, and international organizations. These speakers are leading experts and practitioners in their field who are enthusiastic to share their insights.
