Dear prospective participants,
On behalf of the Secretariat and the Executive Board, it is my utmost honour and pleasure to welcome you all to the third annual session of Alman Lisesi Model United Nations (ALMUN) Conference.
ALMUN 2017 will take place between the 25th and 28th of May, 2017 at Deutsche Schule Istanbul, a school situated in Beyoğlu, a district of historic importance in the heart of Istanbul. For four days, more than 200 participants will gather in our 120-year-old campus to discuss substantial global events in a wide spectrum.
First held in 2015, ALMUN quickly established itself as one of the best Model UN simulations in Turkey. This year, we have an ambitious team of enthusiasts who work day and night to provide our participants with an excellent Model UN experience and who will assure that you, the participants, will return their homes with memorable experiences.
Along with the four traditional General Assembly committees, we offer a variety of special committees: the Security Council, the most powerful organ of the United Nations, will discuss the ongoing situation in Syria and the tensions between India and Pakistan. The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) will work on the nuclear activities of the DPRK and the nuclear waste management. Continuing our tradition of regional committees that we started last year with the Arab League, ALMUN 2017 will feature the European Council, in which the refugee crisis in Europe and the collective ambitions of the European Union will be central to the debate. In the Historical Joint Crisis Committee, the participants will find the chance of taking the role of political leaders and commanders and navigate their path to victory either as Northern or Southern allies in Vietnam War.
In addition, ALMUN 2017 will simulate the International Court of Justice, an international court authorised by the Charter of the United Nations. Participants will have the opportunity of being advocates and judges, and they will experience the primary judiciary organ of the United Nations at first-hand.
Applications for all positions are open. Please do not hesitate to contact us via any means if you have any questions. We are more than delighted to see you joining us in May 2017 at our school.
