MUNIK is the flagship event of the
IBA PSS, and the largest of its kind in IBA. Since its inception a decade ago, MUNIK has sought to provide students
with the opportunity to understand international affairs, gain insight into current events, and learn to appreciate
and navigate the complexity of world politics. The format of Model UN simulates the various organs and specialized
bodies of the United Nations in different committees where delegates, who have been allotted countries to represent,
debate on specific agendas through the course of the conference, culminating in the drafting of a resolution
outlining the committees’ final recommendations and solutions on the topic.
This year, MUNIK returns with its legacy of developing informed young leaders. In the current polarized context of global politics, our vision of “Catalyzing Change” for this landmark edition is one of a future shaped by compassion, and galvanized by meaningful discourse meant to empower voices of progress and change. We hope to achieve this by developing a delegate-centered, academically motivated approach, which will run through all elements of the conference, resulting in a high-quality secretariat and exciting and educational social events.
Over the past nine years, MUNIK has evolved from a small-scale Model UN hosting hardly 300 delegates to an internationally recognized conference with participation from all over the world.
Over the course of four days, delegates at MUNIK are able to learn about the infrastructure and functioning of the organizations that are combating some of humanity’s most pressing concerns, affording them the opportunity to hone their public speaking skills, and develop excellent analytical and interpersonal abilities. Abilities that we hope will help them become change makers.
We hope that our delegates will one day become a force for change and that we are able to play some small part in their success.
