MUNISH 2018 will be held from Friday 2nd to Sunday 4th November 2018

Model United Nations of The International School of The Hague

XXVII Annual Session

Dear Guest,

On behalf of my fellow MUNISH Board of Directors, it is my great honour to invite you and your students to the 27th annual MUNISH conference. MUNISH 2017 will be held from Friday November 3rd - Sunday November 5th, 2017. The MUNISH conference is aimed at delegates between the ages of 14 - 19 years.

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 the XXVII annual MUNISH conference is: ‘Peace, Justice & Inclusive Societies’, which derives from Sustainable Development Goal 16: Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels. Central to this theme are fundamental issues such as: protection of human rights; sustained economic growth and development; social integration; social cohesion; and much more. This goal is undermined by conflict, which can be created where there is a lack of tolerance towards religion, ethnicity, and belief. By striving towards “Inclusive societies”, the goal is to reduce conflict and therefore to promote peace and justice. Concepts such as social integration, cohesion and participation help to contribute to eradicating child poverty, violence and income inequality. We need innovative solutions and the inspiration of a new generation facing these challenges in an increasingly globalised world. We can make the world of tomorrow one which can be enjoyed and cherished. In the words of Kofi Annan: “More than ever before in human history, we share a common destiny. We can master it only if we face it together.”

Furthermore, this year will see the continuation of the International Criminal Court (ICC), the International Court of Justice (ICJ) and this year’s cases can be found on page three of this mailing. In addition, the Historical Security Council (HSC), which will focus on the issues of 1967, The Six-Day War (Arab-Israeli War) and the Vietnam War is also on page three below. We also strongly encourage experienced participants with an interest in law to apply for positions in the ICC and ICJ, for the unique experience it offers. For experienced delegates, joining the Advisory Panel on the Question of Kurdistan (APQK) will be a fascinating experience. Therefore, we advise that the most experienced delegates are placed in this committee. Moreover, MUNISH’s Press Team also offers a valuable opportunity to any participants with an interest in journalism and therefore encourage your students to apply.

MUNISH is affiliated to The Hague International Model United Nations (THIMUN). It therefore promotes the educational aims of THIMUN and is conducted according to the THIMUN by-laws and procedural rules. MUNISH not only gives students the opportunity to prepare for the THIMUN conference held every year in The Hague, but also provides an educational and enjoyable experience for all participants.

We look forward to welcoming you and your students to our school in the city of Peace and Justice in November 2017 for an enriching and memorable conference.

Your sincerely,

Victoria Her
Secretary General | MUNISH 2017
