Applications open for the Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina Model United Nations (UFSCMUN)

10:32 AM

The 2018 Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina Model United Nations (UFSCMUN) is being organized by the International Relations Program of UFSC. The event, that simulates International Organizations and Government Delegations meetings, will take place on 15 and 16 September 2018.

The Model United Nations was created in 1927 at Harvard University by a group of students interested in replicating the environment of the League of Nations after the First World War. Currently, there are more than 400 MUN conferences around the world and over 3,000 Brazilian students involved with these events.

UFSCMUN 2018 brings multidisciplinary themes up for debate. Subjects such as the Humanitarian Crisis in the Democratic Republic of Congo, the Discrimination and Violation of LGBT+’s Rights in Africa, and the Cooperation Agreement between MERCOSUR and the European Union will be discussed in the event’s Committees, which will also include a Press Committee.

Applications are open and are limited. Students from all Brazilian Higher Education Institutions are eligible.

To apply, access UFSCMUN’s website.
