AMUNC attracts over 600 of the best and brightest from across the Asia-Pacific and beyond and involves six days of sophisticated lobbying and debating, world-class speakers and a weeklong social programme.
AMUNC is a Model UN, with traditional UN committees as well as special committees and options for more experienced delegates. For those looking for a slightly different experience, the conference offers a Security Council, Crisis Council, and non-governmental organisation (NGO) programme, International Press Gallery, legal panels such as the Internationa Court of Justice and for the first time ever in 2012, a Special Management Committee tasked with the actual running of the United Nations.
AMUNC is attended by students from across a number of disciplines, though many do have previous experience in Model UN and backgrounds in international relations. Delegates come with different Model UN experience, all delegates spend the week in their committee, and are treated to exciting social events in the evenings. They are also treated to an amazing array of guest speakers and experts.
Along with developing your debating and negotiating skills and advancing your knowledge on global affairs, exciting parties, balls and dinners will keep you on your toes and allowed us to indulge in some of Australia’s best nightlife over the course of the conference. AMUNC is the perfect opportunity for anyone with an interest in world issues or keen to try something new.
Next year, AMUNC will be held in Wellington at Victoria University in Wellington from the 7th - 12th of July.You can find out more about the conference by visitng www.amunc.net and by following it at www.facebook.com/amunc2013.
