As the name indicates, Model United Nations (MUN) is a comprehensive simulation of the United Nations aiming to introduce students to the work of the United Nations, and the roles of its various committees and those of the delegates of various nations in the context of current international issues and events. The project will be strongly supported by the Cultural Association named “ Francesco Della Ratta” of Caserta. MUN gives the students the opportunity to represent a country in a real UN committee, during which delegates assume a diplomatic role and engage in the simulation of a topic that revolves around current global issues, events that are actually being discussed and settled at the United Nations. The simulation requires that participants are to employ a variety of communication abilities and political thinking, negotiation tactics, vast general knowledge, and leadership skills in order to generate critical and important analyses and later on viable solutions to the topic being debated. This activity will allow students to acquire and develop confidence in public speaking, political analysis, as well as skills in the area of research and negotiation techniques, active listening skills, leadership and conflict resolution. These skills will be permanent resource transferrable into any part of their life.
