Model United Nations at Emory XII is the twelfth consecutive conference held by the International Relations Association at Emory University. In recent years, we have been known for providing delegates with unique and interesting challenges in our committees, and this year will be no different! Join Emory University in September for MUNE XII!
Our secretariat and staffers build upon years of experience with every successive conference and relentlessly strive to ensure each MUNE is better than the last. We take delegate feedback seriously and actively seek the input of our delegates in the continued growth and development of our conference.
Since our debut conference in 2011, MUNE has grown from a small regional conference to hosting delegates from all over the United States. We pride ourselves on our belief in the importance of the delegate experience above all else. With this, we work to ensure that the open debate of contemporary issues is as engaging and inclusive as possible.
Model United Nations at Emory is proud to offer the 24-Hour Crisis committee. Here, delegates are challenged to demonstrate ability in both debate and cunning as they are tasked to work together in addressing rapidly changing and evolving crisis scenarios with frequent and engaging updates.
Our mission is to provide our delegates with the best delegate experience possible. We seek to impart upon both new and veteran delegates alike a Model United Nations experience that is engaging, unique, and keeps delegates coming back!
As the leaders of tomorrow, we are obligated to adopt a perspective of the world that is inclusive, understanding, and progressive. As the future is in our hands, we must educate ourselves of the world of today so that we make the world of tomorrow a better one. We believe that open debate is a crucial part of this process, and thus hope to promote progressive and innovative thinking in our conference.
On behalf of the Emory International Relations Association, it is my esteemed privilege to invite you to the 12th iteration of Emory’s annual collegiate Model United Nations conference, MUNE!
MUNE XII will take place beginning Thursday, September 28th, and ending Sunday, October 1st, 2023 in Atlanta, Georgia.
Over the past few months, the MUNE XII Secretariat and I have been tasked with making several structural changes to MUNE, perhaps the most noticeable of these being the date.
MUNE’s date change sounded daunting at first. After all, it meant that we would be planning both MUNE XI and MUNE XII simultaneously. But after seeing the tireless dedication of my EIRA peers, I’m confident that our 12th collegiate conference will be our best one yet. I’m incredibly proud to work alongside the driven, intelligent, and passionate Secretariat Members and Crisis Directors of MUNE XII, and I can’t wait for their hard work to come to fruition in September.
MUNE prides itself on creating innovative and creative committees year after year. Our 24-Hour Crisis committee is a consistent delegate favorite, offering a unique and fast-paced format to delegates. MUNE XII will also feature a Joint Crisis Committee, traditional Crisis Committees across a range of topics, and both double and single-delegate General Assembly Committees.
Additionally, Emory’s convenient location in Atlanta gives delegates easy access to a wide variety of dining, nightlife, and other attractions. Late September is a perfect time to visit the South, and we’re excited for you and your teams to experience all the city has to offer.
Please feel free to reach out to email@example.com with any questions or concerns.
We hope to see you this Fall!
