1st ESADE MUN for High Schools

Be a diplomat for a day

in an United Nations simulation

Would you like to be part of a United Nations session? Represent a country and discuss issues of global importance with students from all over the world? Don’t miss the first ESADE MUN for High Schools: you and your classmates will get to be diplomats for a day and participate in a unique experience.

What is it?

A Model United Nations (MUN) conference is a simulation of an ordinary United Nations session in which students from various schools are organised into countries to discuss a political, economic or social issue of global interest. The conference is held over the course of a day (divided into several two-hour sessions) and is led by two moderators or Chairs.


3 February 2018

ESADE Law School,
Barcelona Pedralbes Campus

Language: English

How does it work?


You will need to form groups of representatives or diplomats at your school, in pairs (Double Delegations).


Each double delegation will be assigned a country. From this moment on, you will be representatives of this country (to make it more interesting this will not be your country of nationality).


We will inform you in advance of the topic to be discussed at the mock United Nations session.


The members of your delegation will need to prepare for the session focusing on three main aspects:

• Documentation: You will need to research the characteristics of your country. You should have a thorough grasp of its economy, domestic and foreign policy, resources, society, etc.

• Rules of Procedure: You will need to comply with a simplified version of the original rules of procedure and diplomatic protocols of the United Nations.

• Preparation of the topic: You will need to look for information on the topic to be discussed and try to establish the considerations, measures or solutions you will bring to the debate.


On 3 February, you will meet with the delegations of other countries and participate in a session conducted just as it would be at the United Nations. You will also need to submit your measures and solutions in writing.
