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.


No events

THIMUN affiliation links those MUNs, which wish to be associated with THIMUN and whose educational goals, standards and quality of organisation are recognised as being of an appropriately high standard.


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.


For more information on the affiliation programme, including information on how to become affiliated, see the various menu items in this section.
