MaltMUN 2017: Death of the Border

That time of the year is here again: the annual edition of MaltMUN is returning, and it’s only getting bigger and better! This year, the Conference shall be held between the 15th and 17th of September 2017. The Main theme will be ‘Death of the Border: Eliminating lines of Demarcation between States’, emphasising the struggle between sovereignty of States and globalisation. Over the three days, this issue will be tackled from different aspects within the context of our different committees’ competences.

Whilst building on the solid ground established in previous editions of MaltMUN, we will be adding another committee to ensure diverse options for everyone! The prestigious Security Council and ICJ will be retained, whilst another three new specialised committees will be simulated, namely ECOFIN, SPECPOL and WHO. The minds behind this year’s edition of MaltMUN have paid close attention to target those who are passionate about macro-economics, politics and the movement of people, whilst also ensuring that the issue of health in the international sphere is given its due importance. Committees will be held inside the Valletta’s most prominent and prestigious venues, including our very own Parliament building, ensuring that participants will get the full experience of what it feels like to be a diplomat! All this comes at a mere €35 delegate fee, which covers all venues and related expenses for the whole three-day conference.

Additionally, this year’s edition of MaltMUN will include a superb upgrade in the social events programme, allowing delegates to network and socialise, and immersing participants in delegating the full experience of what Model United Nations is all about. For the amazing price of €25, the MaltMUN 2017 Social Pack shall cover the Delegate Drinks on Friday evening with a sensational array of nibbles (the Maltese way!), and a free flowing wine-and-beer event on Saturday night! Don’t miss this incredible opportunity to learn more about International Affairs, whilst having the opportunity to develop your public speaking and diplomatic skills in a most engaging and vibrant environment.

Applications are now open!

MaltMUN 2015

The Malta Model United Nations Society is proud to present Malta Model United Nations 2015, the first International MUN conference in the 2018 European Capital for Culture, Valletta.

Throughout history, Malta has been heralded as ‘The Nurse of the Mediterranean’ and it has once again been called upon to fulfill this role as the irregular immigration problem has come to a head in our seas. In order to deepen understanding of the calamitous fate of these immigrants the Society would like to invite discussion on the theme of ‘Lives Adrift: Fighting the Exploitation of Irregular Immigrants’. Between the 18th and the 20th of September 2015, delegates will have the opportunity to listen to inspiring guest speakers and to produce a particular nation state’s views on the issue, all the while guided by knowledgeable Chairs and aided by newfound friends.

The Conference is about people: the plight of the immigrants, the dilemmas of statesmen, and the building of bridges between different delegates. The social events will unite all of these with a boat party on Saturday night setting delegates adrift in style following the traditional delegate drinks on Friday. So be one of our distinguished delegates at MaltMUN 2015 and apply here!
