Georgetown Fall MUN Conference

Welcome to Georgetown Qatar’s Model United Nations Program

Our 2020 Fall MUN Conference will be Nov 12 – 14

The FIRST Georgetown Fall MUN conference will be held VIRTUALLY through Zoom. Please note that this conference is ONLY open to high school students in Qatar. We invite interested schools to apply for a team of 6 student delegates (one delegation) to the conference. The conference will not interfere with school timings. The maximum we can accommodate is TWO delegations or 12 students per school. We do not accept individual delegates, if your school applies for its own delegation(s). If your school does not have a MUN club or MUN counselor, please email us at qatarmun@georgetown.edu 

There is no conference fee and attendance to the virtual conference is FREE.

Please note that committee and country allocations will be sent to the school counselors on first come first served basis. We encourage shcools to apply as soon as possible to secure their spots! Delegates are required to research both the country they will represent at the conference as well as the specific topics to be debated in their assigned committee.

All of our committees are chaired by Georgetown University Qatar students.
