Model United Nations of The International School of The Hague

XXV Annual Session

MUNISH 2016 (XXVI Session) will be held at The International School of The Hague from Friday 4th to Sunday 6th November 2016.

Dear Guest,

On the behalf of my fellow MUNISH Board of Directors, it is my great honour to invite you and your students to the 25th annual MUNISH conference. MUNISH 2015 will be held from Friday October 30th to Sunday 1st November 2015.

As stated in the MUNISH mission statement, MUNISH is “A conference run by youth, for today’s youth, to benefit the youth of tomorrow”. It is these ideals that make MUNISH the true embodiment of Model United Nations. For a whole weekend students can become diplomats and are given the responsibility of the roles they take on. For three days the participants of MUNISH, numbering over 1,000 last year, join to debate, discuss and consider issues that affect our world today, from the eyes of those that have the opportunity to make a difference. MUNISH leaves participants with a new perspective on our world and of their roles in shaping it.

The theme for MUNISH 2015 is ‘Good Governance and Cooperation’. This theme allows every participant at the conference to discuss important issues that are essential to maintaining political, economic and social stability. 'Good Governance' and 'Cooperation' are two of the United Nation’s main goals. Cooperation involves nations working together across and between nations while good governance involves what is happening within nations with governments working effectively and efficiently for the good of their citizens. However, today’s reality is that there is significant inequality throughout the world. It is through cooperation and good governance that these challenges might be addressed. Therefore, if governments can achieve these fundamental objectives, they can consequently achieve, transparency, accountability, equality, and unity. Vint Cerf once said, “Remember, 'governance' is a big word that includes human rights, freedom of speech, economic transactions on a worldwide basis -­‐ it touches everything. It's everywhere...". Therefore, in accordance with the theme, we will seek to tackle these topics and many more.

We look forward to welcoming you to our school in the city of Peace and Justice in November 2015.

Your sincerely,

Tim van der Horst
Secretary General | MUNISH 2015
