Description

DESCRIPTION

The Abuja International Model United Nations Conference is an Educational Simulation of the inner workings of the United Nations’ diplomatic functions where youths (mostly students) gets to learn about diplomacy, round-table negotiations, arts of lobbying and the United Nations Global Developmental Agenda.

Grappling with the international challenges of representing the needs, concerns, interests, and foreign policy objectives of a government other than their own, delegates at the Abuja International Model United Nations Conference simulate various committees, funds and programms of the United Nations by assuming the roles of the country Ambassadors to the UN. they will be debating, negotiating and lobbying one another for practical solutions to the world’s most daunting challenges such as; Terrorism, Human Rights Violation, Economic and Refugee crisis, Cyber Security etc. using foreign policies of the country they individually represented.

In the process, delegates have un-matched opportunities to acquire leadership attributes that are ordinarily not available or otherwise difficult to acquire in the course of reading books, viewing films, videos, or television, listening to a specialist, participating in academic classes, attending briefings, or accessing blogs and the Internet.

They also not only deepen their knowledge and understanding of the world and its peoples, but as well have an extraordinary chance to develop and practice useful analytical, organizational, writing, editing, and public speaking skills. In so doing, they strengthen their ability to engage in the art of reasoned argument and spirited debate, and become better prepared to be knowledgeable, well-trained, and effective citizens as well as civic and public affairs leaders.

The theme of the 4th annual session of the Abuja International Model United Nations Conference is “Winning the Fight Against Corruption: A Sustainable Path to Africa’s Transformation”. This theme has been chosen for its breadth and applicability to all our committees’ topics ranging from the General Assembly, Security Council, Disarmament and International Security to Social, Cultural and Humanitarian Committee. The theme of Corruption is pertinent to all aspects of global policy in the world today, and fighting it still has always been the challenge of every member states internal governance.

The questions of corruption can be linked to funding, financing and recruitment for terrorism, drug, arms and human trafficking etc. And most importantly, underdevelopment of many African countries with its attendant political instability are potent results of corruption.
