Georgetown University in Qatar's annual Model United Nations (MUN) conference is a forum for engaged high school students to debate current global issues and gain insight into the world of international politics and policy-making. The MUN conference is governed by the MUN Student Board.
Each year we welcome over 350 students from schools around the world to Doha for four days of MUN committee sessions and cultural experiences. Interested schools may apply to bring a team of 6 student delegates to the conference.
What is MUN?
Model United Nations is a student- run simulation of the United Nations, where students assume the roles of foreign diplomats to learn about international politics and diplomacy.
Participants at our MUN are high school students from around the world, who join our MUN as a school team of six students and one or two teachers. Student participants ("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.
Committees and Topics 2019
Georgetown Qatar MUN is dedicated to covering the most pressing issues in international affairs and beyond. Each year our team of students work diligently to come up with a list of intellectual topics that reflect the shifting dynamics of the world. The committees and topics will be posted shortly after the theme is announced.
