Each fall the Stockholm Model United Nations (SMUN) Conference attracts an ever increasing number of top university students from both Sweden and abroad. These students, who represent the very best in their respective fields of study, are selected through a competitive application process, to participate as delegates in a simulation of the negotiations taking place within the UN and other international organisations.
– Simulating international institutions
The delegates are presented with real and pressing issues of current international concern, and they are challenged to present jointly constructed – and feasible – resolutions to these scenarios. Annually, more than 150 top university students from around the world are expected to participate in a three day conference.
– Supporting tomorrow’s leaders
The SMUN Conference fills a gap in the regular course curriculum by offering ambitious students a forum for practising their speaking skills and negotiations techniques, both important tools needed in today’s global world; for students embarking on international careers, whether it is in business, governments or international organisations, SMUN is a unique opportunity to practice the skills of leadership and cooperation.
– Theory turned into practice
SMUN brings together university students for active discussion and engagement in issues of world politics. The conferences demand much of the students, in terms of knowledge and diplomatic skills; the pay-off, however, is one which benefits the participating delegates for the rest of their lives. SMUN sets the framework within which interest is turned into involvement, and theory is turned into practice.
