「INVITATION」

1st CHINA UNIVERSITY MODEL UNITED NATIONS DEVELOPMENT AND COOPERATION FORUM

· INVITAITON,forum

Dear MUNers:

In 1995, Model United Nations Conference of Chinese universities was held for the first time in the Foreign Affairs University in Beijing. By 2001, first from the Peking University, then the Foreign Affairs University, and the Northwestern Polytechnical University had set up their model United Nations Associations; Subsequently, the number of model United Nations Associations among universities(Beijing) soared in a short period after 2005; Today, nearly all the universities and colleges around China have a model United Nations Association.

However, according to incomplete statistics, there are totally 33 model United Nations Associations of universities in Beijing, whose development situation are remarkably diverse because of the operation time, the academic atmosphere and some other reasons. During the past year, about 28 Model United Nations Conferences/meetings are held in Beijing, ranging from dozens to hundreds of delegates.

We meet at different major conferences, exchange business cards, greet at each other with a "Dear Delegate" and then rush to the next venue. But it is far too little for a real MUNer, especially for presidents of the model United Nations Associations. Every day and night we never stop thinking that: How to make a certain conference stand out among these countless and endless Model United Nations activities? How to attract participants as a Polytechnic university even without any social sciences? What are the differences between a foreign conference and domestic? Are Background Guides completed only by searching on Baidu or Wikipedia? How to prepare the conference more effectively? How to insure the inheritance and innovation of documents of associations? I am afraid that you may have the same confusions.

There is an urgent calling for such a platform to strengthen the links between various model United Nations Associations of colleges and universities, to share information and promote exchanges and cooperation. So we are committed to building such a platform now, allowing the current or former leaders of model United Nations Associations across the China to gather together. Welcome all the MUNers who are fond of the model United Nations and eager to change to participate.

Let the model United Nations unite you and me!

The Story behind a successful international model United Nations Conference

Kangwei Wang

Academic Director

Asian International Model United Nations

China, the United States, South Korea, Japan, Pakistan, Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia and the like, at the AIMUN conference, you will meet a wide variety of delegates from many different countries. No matter which country the delegates come from or what kind of backgrounds they have, they can gather together in the beautiful Seasons in Peking University for the same reason: a sincere love and passion of Model United Nations. They explore the global affairs together, experience the real diplomatic situation, feel the cultural interaction and blend. This is the best portrayal of a successful international modal United Nations conference.

The Peking University Model United Nations Association was founded in 2001. The Association has two annual United Nations conferences: the Peking University Model United Nations (PKUMUN) for Chinese high school students and the AIMUN (Asia International Model United Nations) conference for Chinese and foreign university students. As an international model United Nations conference, AIMUN has successfully attracted over 400 delegates from nearly 100 universities in more than 20 countries and regions in March 2013. Notably, in addition to the delegates, nearly half of the members of the Organizing Committee and the Dais of AIMUN are students from outside of China. Besides, AIMUN always maintains close contacts with the well-known and major model United Nations Associations across the world. An inclusive, international and pluralistic attitude is the key to a successful international modal United Nations conference.

Wang, comes from Singapore, has six years of experience in MUN, and he is currently an undergraduate at the School of International Studies at Peking University. As the academic director of 2013-2014 Asia International model United Nations Conference, he will share the reasons for the success of AIMUN both on the stage and behind the scenes.

How to Concentrate limited Resources on large undertakings, act as an unity

Xin Liu

Secretary General

University of International Business and Economics Model United Nations Association

In recent years, model United Nations activities have entered a stage of vigorous development in China. There are even several meetings within a week in the peak time every year. Confronted with such an increasingly competitive situation, the joint conferences will not only enhance the quality of the meetings, but also promote professional communications among the universities which are accordant in certain areas. The Model United Nations Conference on Finance and Economics, as a plant-scale model United Nations conference for specialized universities/colleges since the Excellence 9, has been a model in this regard. Students from the University of International Business and Economics will share some experience with us on this issue.

Peisung Lee, the Head delegate of 2013 Harvard National Model United Nations Conference NisenMUN delegation, has experienced a number of model United Nations meetings in Harvard University, Peking University, Tsinghua University, Beijing Foreign Studies University and Renmin University of China, and will introduce those secrets about HNMUN to yo, which you can not miss! From the preparation to the conference, from document writing to unmoderated caucus, we are waiting for you!

How to stimulate and draft an academic document from scratch

Juyang Zang

senior Chinese MUNer,

The Background Guide is not a simple accumulation of materials, nor is it an academic paper focused on the writer’s points of view, let alone a manual to show off the knowledge to the new-hands. It should be a textbook designed to give delegates a sense of inspiration and awareness in some degree. There are many terrible Background Guide samples, but excellent Background Guides have only one principle: To lead delegates to explore more knowledge. Having analysed a wide range of Background Guides about hundreds of different topics, committees and institutions, the senior Chinese MUNer, Juyang Zang will talk about how to write an "excellent" Background Guide.
