Spark the debate in the city of light !
For the second time this year, six of the most prestigious French universities – Sciences Po, Panthéon-Assas, Panthéon-Sorbonne, Polytechnique School, ILERI and the American University of Paris – have decided to join forces in order to organize a large-scale Model United Nations (MUN) conference in Paris: Paris International Model United Nations (PIMUN). PIMUN is a prestigious program of EpaNU endowments fund, made up of volunteers and dynamic students, ready to make Paris a place where students can debate global governance and contemporary issues.
With 600 international students expected to attend the conference, PIMUN will last three days, one of which will be at the UNESCO headquarters in Paris. Delegates, by participating in the conference, have to simulate the role of national officials at the UN or other international organizations and defend the interests of the country they represent. At PIMUN, young diplomats and experts-to-be will be confronted to the difficult enterprise of international negotiations and will experience the complexities inherent to the formation of global policies. Split into different committees, delegates will be able to discuss and will share their views as they try to propose solutions for some of the most complex issues that the world is facing to nowadays.
