About MUN and AMMUN

Model United Nations (MUN) is a simulation of the work of the New York based United Nations.  A country is assigned to each student delegate who then assumes the role of Ambassador and debates agenda items which are mostly taken from the ‘real’ United Nations. The MUN simulation is widely practiced by schools and universities in most countries.  It is truly a global network of student conferences where delegates chair debates and control the overall organisation of the conference.  Students learn and practice a variety of skills from public speaking, parliamentary debate and argument.  A successful MUN delegate must also approach an issue with academic rigour and be able to work constructively as a member of a team with conference delegates who, for the most part, they have never met before.

 

The Amman Baccalaureate School (ABS) MUN programmme offers students valuable career paths, where a delegate can rise to become AMMUN’s Secretary-General or hold another executive position in a premier MUN conference in the region.  Such leadership positions are highly regarded by universities as they demonstrate commitment to a programme over a substantial length of time and the maturity of accepting responsibility to see a project through to its conclusion. All students are welcome in the ABS MUN Club and there are a variety of roles from journalist and photographer, to organisers and administration staff, as well as those who debate as delegates and chair the committees.  MUN also offers roles for students in the International Court of Justice and here one will often find those aspiring lawyers arguing over their respective countries’ role in an international dispute.

 

A Mini MUN – Grade 7

A Mini Model United Nations (MUN) is a one day training conference for Grade 7 students.  Participation is mandatory for all Grade 7 students who would like to attend local and international conferences as part of the Amman Baccalaureate School (ABS) MUN Club in the future. Students who do not complete the five training sessions and one day conference will not be considered for ABS MUN delegations.

 

A mini MUN will debate resolutions on regional and global issues and students will be required to undertake research at home and attend five training sessions.

 

Local MUN Conferences

The Model United Nations (MUN) is active in many of Amman’s private schools and the Amman Baccalaureate School (ABS) attends approximately five local conferences per academic year. These conferences are open to students from Grades 8–12 and delegates can apply for student officer positions. The conferences generally fall on weekends and no school time is lost.  Students names are presented to the Heads of School prior to conformation to check that there are no disciplinary or academic issues with students, the highest standards of behaviour are expected at all MUN conferences.

 

International Conferences

Model Unites Nations (MUN) provides the Amman Baccalaureate School (ABS) students with the opportunity to attend a number of highly regarded international conferences where they also experience the cultural highlights of the host city.  Students attending international conferences are highly encouraged to apply for student officer positions, prepare thoroughly and be proud ambassadors for AMMUN.

 

The Hague International Model United Nations (THIMUN), is held each year the last week of January in The Hague.  The conference brings together approximately 3,200 delegates from around the world for seven days and it is regarded as ‘the world championships’ of MUN.  In the past ABS delegates have held prestigious positions at THIMUN as committee chairs, Deputy President of the ICJ and Deputy Secretary-General.
