Students learn about the work of the United Nations
Leiden students organised a Model United Nations (MUN) from 3 to 6 May in The Hague. An MUN simulates the working of the United Nations and is intended to allow students to learn about the practice of international relations. View the photo series.
The theme of the Model United Nations The Hague (MUNOTH) was: ‘Worldwide repercussions: environmental protection als sleutelrol’. Students discussed sub-topics, such as renewable energy in developing countries, in various committees. More concrete subjects were also considered, such as Bolivia's access to the Pacific Ocean. In the simulated Security Council, there was even talk of reforming the supreme body of the United Nations.
