We organise weekly debate training sessions with the aim of introducing students to MUN and training them with the skillset needed to participate in conferences. Simulating various committees of the UN, members adopt the role of a UN member state and engage in MUN-style debates on security, humanitarian, environmental, social and economic issues and formulate solutions to them. Participants will build an understanding of complex global issues while also learning effective public speaking and negotiation tactics.
Our MUN debates are designed to be accessible to everyone regardless of experience level, so we encourage students to come along to as many of the sessions as possible for thought-provoking, skill-building and fun debate! We generally follow the OxIMUN Rules of Procedure which can be found here. If you are new to MUN, you may find it useful to read our Beginner’s Guide to MUN here.
