WELCOME TO EMUN 2020
EMUN, a more realistic approach to contemporary diplomacy.
Dear Delegates, Faculty Members, and General Guests,
As members of the Eton Community and the steering committee, we are pleased to invite all interested high school students to be a part of the second edition of ETON Model United Nations (EMUN), which will be held at Eton School’s Santa Fe campus on March 18, 19, and 20, 2020.
ETON School’s MUN club tradition has provided many high school students with the opportunity to participate in a variety of high-level events. After four years of preparation, and with the help of faculty members, school authorities, and a strong and diligent team, ETON School will open its doors to invite external participants to attend a MUN event of our own. Over the past few months, the Secretariat has worked hard to reach this goal, and today we can confidently say that EMUN will provide procedural and academic standards of a noteworthy level with the objective of giving delegates an enriching and fulfilling MUN experience.
We are eagerly anticipating the opportunity to host this important Conference, during which we will meet and collaborate with determined and engaged young people that will pursue new ideas to improve our world and solve some of the problems that afflict today’s society. Inside our four different committees, meticulously created by the Secretariat, delegates will be invited to overcome challenges and achieve new and original solutions.
Over the past few months, we have put our hearts into planning this project. We are looking forward to making an excellent Model United Nations, one that is inclusive and open to Mexico City’s community of young minds. By doing so, we will demonstrate the importance of youngsters’ participation in national and international politics.
On behalf of the Secretariat and the ETON community, we invite all students to participate in EMUN 2020 this spring.
EMUN 2020 will include four different committees: the United Nations Security Council, The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization.
What is MUN?
Model United Nations (MUN) is a simulation of the UN debates where students can learn and practice diplomacy, public speaking, and problem solving. In this simulation, students play United Nations delegates of a particular country (also known as delegations) inside a defined committee. Model UN is an extracurricular activity where students practice the protocol and special skills required for a formal meeting of the United Nations. Within each committee, the delegates are allowed to choose pre-established topics to discuss. The purpose of the debate is to find solutions for the problem being debated, and create a formal UN resolution regarding the topic. Being part of MUN is a fulfilling and educational experience for all students, where they are given a safe space to expand the margins of their experience in a controlled academic environment.
The Academic and Simulation Secretary cordially greets you and gives you a warm and respectful welcome to the second edition of EMUN. This year’s committees have been selected through a rigorous and focused procedure, in order to give each and every delegate participating the best possible experience this conference has to offer. The objective of each committee is to present a respectful but entertaining environment that challenges the delegates to think critically in order to solve several problems that afflict the current global situation. This event seeks to reinforce the rhetoric abilities of the participant delegations, as well as encouraging them to work within a team to bolster collaboration and leadership skills.
The topics that have been selected for this edition of EMUN are pivotal to achieving the aforementioned objectives. The General Secretariat expects each participant to come prepared in order to increase the academic level of the discussion that will take place around the presented problems, and also to maximize the benefit, in terms of new knowledge, that the delegates can take away from this experience.
With nothing else to add, the General Secretariat expects you with anticipation and encourages you to join us in this edition of EMUN.
