The MUN Guide

What is MUN?
Model United Nations is an extracurricular activity normally hosted by high schools or
universities. These conferences consist of students taking the part of a country and debating several
different topics according to their assigned country's views and opinions.

Why Do MUN?
Students from all around the world attend THIMUN affiliated conferences in order to enhance
several skills, such as team work, research and public speaking. Nevertheless, in our current epoch,
globalization is more evident than ever before, and so being globally aware is vital.

Committees:
- Human Right Commission:
o The Human Rights Council is an inter-governmental body within the United Nations
structure, with a membership consisting of 47 states. The Council is responsible for
strengthening the promotion and protection of human rights around the globe. It was
created by the UN General Assembly in 2006 with the overall objective of addressing
human rights violations.

- Economic and Social Council:


o The United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) is responsible for
coordinating the economic, social, and related work of 15 UN specialized agencies, their
functional commissions and five regional commissions. Finance ministers heading key
committees of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) attend these
conferences.

- Security Council:
o The Security Council takes the lead in determining the existence of a threat to the peace
or act of aggression. It calls upon the parties to a dispute to settle it by peaceful means
and recommends methods of adjustment or terms of settlement. In some cases, the
Security Council can resort to imposing sanctions or even authorize the use of force to
maintain or restore international peace and security.

- International Criminal Court:


o Established in 2002, the International Criminal Court (ICC) is an institution to ensure that
crimes against humanity and mass atrocities do not occur with impunity. While national
governments often have capable systems to enforce laws, in occasions of mass atrocity
national governments are often unequipped to deal with such grave issues. These
incidences fall far outside the capacities of most legal systems or even the system itself
becomes compromised. The ICC is formed out of that legacy with the goal of ending
impunity for mass atrocities and bringing justice to crimes that warrant international
attention.
