What is MUIMUN?
What is a MUN?
The abbreviation MUN stands for Model United Nations and describes an event during which students get to play the role of international delegates and discuss different topics in a wide variety of UN-committees while representing their assigned country. The debates are accompanied by social events and often workshops during which the participants have the opportunity to learn about the United Nations or improve skills such as making speeches or writing working papers.

The next edition of MUIMUN will provide its participants with the chance to debate in several English, Spanisch and French speaking committees, working together with over 200 delegates from all over the world in the beautiful city of Münster, Germany. Being a great experience for First Timers and also experienced MUNers, it offers a unique atmosphere of social and international diversity tied together by the magical MUIMUN spirit. The castle being Münster’s main attraction is an ideal place to set the scene for diplomatic discussions, relations and - last but not least – our spectacular socials. There will be scholarships available for international delegates and High school scholars accompanied by workshops concerning a wide variety of topics linked to the United Nations.
Meet the Team
Since 1998, students from in- and outside Germany travelled to Hamburg to participate in a Model United Nations Conference. In the course of the past 18 years, the HamMUN became the biggest and leading conference of its kind in Germany, attracting MUN veterans, experts and newbies alike. In 2015, more than 600 participants from all over the world were attracted by the HamMUN. We are proud that, many of those who joined the HamMUN once, did return in the following year.
The Montreal United Nations Conference (“MUNC”) is excited to announce its fifth conference edition organized in the heart of downtown Montreal this upcoming November. In 2016, we welcomed 500 participants from across Canada and throughout the world to enjoy a weekend of debate, diplomacy and networking. In March 2019, our conference sponsor Dawson College organized and hosted Harvard World Model United Nations 2019 that welcomed more than 2500 participants to Montreal.
This year marks Canada’s 150 anniversary of Confederation and Montreal’s 375 anniversary. We are excited to be celebrating the fifth anniversary of the Montreal United Nations Conference on this very special year. As one of Canada's leading Model UN simulations, the Montreal United Nations Conference provides an exciting and unique experience for participants. We offer an academic and professional conference with representatives from the United Nations Association in Canada (UNA-C) and similar international organizations present.
MuniMUN was founded in 2011 by a couple of student enthusiasts from the Faculty of Social Studies at Masaryk University. They kept the project active for two years during which they organized two smaller conferences in 2012 and 2013. However, most of the team members graduated from MU by 2013 and thus MuniMUN for a while ceased to be active.
In 2014, Lenka Vybíralová, our former Secretary General, decided to re-new the tradition of MUN at Masaryk University. Soon afterward she met with Jana Šidlíková, the current Head Coordinator of the project, and together they started building MuniMUN one more time from the scratch. They both had previous experience with MUN and similarly, as the former team, they wanted to create a MUN tradition at Masaryk University.
MuniMUN has received support and financial grants from several institutions and organizations which enabled Lenka and Jana to keep the project active and to organize their first international conference so soon after re-starting the project. At the moment, the still-growing MuniMUN team comprises of about 20 members of the Faculty of Social Studies and the Faculty of Arts, as well as from Mendel University.
C'MUN was born in May 2006, the first simulation of the United Nations bodies in Spain, for university students.
The immense success of the first editions, the support of the institutions and, above all, the enthusiasm of the participants, soon stablished C'MUN as a leading Model United Nations, gathering hundreds of delegates every year.
The C'MUN attracts both beginners and MUN veterans, giving beginners the opportunity to learn and discover, and to the experienced ones, to improve and share abilities, making debates intense and profitable.
C'MUN 2019 will be held in the city of Barcelona on April 5th - 8th. The committees to be simulated match very diverse interests and topics, so be sure that one will suit your passions.
