What is MUN?

Model United Nations (MUN) is an academic simulation of the United Nations that aims to educate participants about current events, topics in international relations, diplomacy and the United Nations agenda.

The THIMUN Foundation Affiliation Program is designed to develop high quality MUN conferences throughout the world. A THIMUN Affiliated conference identifies conferences that hold to high standards, have been evaluated by an outside party, and are committed to providing a quality educational experience for their participants.


THIMUN has encouraged the development of THIMUN-affiliated MUNs in order to give more young people, for whom coming to a THIMUN conference would be impossible, the opportunity to experience and enjoy the benefits of Model United Nations. It is, therefore, a primary goal of all THIMUN-Affiliated MUNs to reach out to the local communities in which they are situated and to encourage participation by local schools in their region.
