Current Affairs/MUN

Description

This Club offers students a platform to access information on politics and (inter)national affairs, exchange views and discuss issues of interest. At the same time, they are preparing to participate in the Model United Nations Conference (MUN). In this political simulation, students experience firsthand how the UN works and learn to engage in global issues – they develop skills of public speaking, formal writing, negotiation and conflict resolution.

Course instructor

Aditi Dar and Nayana Chakrabarti were both passionate MUN participants during their own school days. They are convinced that expression, presentation skills, fluency and good persuasive skills are important for the further development of our students – skills that students will need in their  further academic careers.
