GU-Q Fall MUN Conference “Diversity and Integration in a World of Conflict“
October 14&15, 2022
Welcome to GU-Q’s Fall Model United Nations Program.
Please note that this conference is ONLY open to high school students in Qatar.
We invite interested schools in Qatar to apply for a team of six student delegates (one delegation) to the conference. The conference will not interfere with school timings. The maximum we can accommodate is up to TWO delegations or 12 students per school. However, we cannot guarantee two delegations for each school, it will be on a first-come-first-served basis. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fees: There is no conference fee and attendance to the conference is FREE. We do no accept new registrations on the day of the conference and unregistered students on the day of the conference.
Conference Format: In light of the current circumstances, we are hoping and aiming for an in-person experience. If an in-person conference is not possible, we will move forward with a virtual conference like last year. However, we can only confirm the format of the conference later owing to the evolving nature of the COVID-19 restrictions in Qatar. Please note that committee and country allocations will be sent to the school counselors on first come first served basis. We encourage schools 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 committees at the conference are chaired by Georgetown University in Qatar students.
Conference Theme: Diversity and Integration in a World of Conflict
