At HMUN 2018, each delegate will partake in a simulation of the United Nations or another international body and gain better insight into the subtleties of international affairs. Each HMUN committee will address issues of international importance. The wide range of committees provides for topics to suit each student’s interests. HMUN simulates four types of committees: the UN General Assembly (GA), the UN Economic and Social Council (EcoSoc), Regional Bodies, and Specialized Agencies (SA). In addition, HMUN offers opportunities for students to participate in the conference as part of the Press Corps or as a representative of a Non-Governmental-Organization.
Economic and Social Council
Specialized Agencies provide delegates with an opportunity to delve into detailed and often complicated issues in a small-group setting. The SA consists of the world’s most powerful and dynamic bodies in which delegates are forced to confront volatile international conflicts requiring immediate resolution. Well-informed and well-researched delegates who are not only unafraid of speaking and writing extemporaneously, but also thrive on the challenge presented by the most demanding committees the high school circuit has to offer, will find their match in the SA. The fate of the world is in the SA delegates’ hands; whether the globe is shattered or preserved lies squarely on each SA delegate’s shoulders.
