International conferences such as the World Model United Nations that simulate the United Nations offer a unique opportunity for students to immerse themselves in multilateral diplomacy. The World Model United Nations (WorldMUN) is held annually in a different location around the world with more than 2,000 students from over 115 countries. Participating in the WorldMUN delivers insight into the work of a diplomat and is essential for students who plan a career in international organizations. WorldMUN will host its next conference March 16-20, 2020 in Tokyo, Japan. The in-conference trip will take place March 15-21, 2020.
This seminar is open to dedicated and motivated FSU students who will join the 2020 WorldMUN delegation. In three compact courses, students will familiarize themselves with - the work of the United Nations (including the simulated conference committees),- the policies and perspectives of the assigned country,- the issues to be debated at the conference,- rhetorical skills,- and the rules of procedure of the conference.
