Duisburg-Essen Model United Nations
You can find further information on the DuEMUN-website.
The "Duisburg-Essen Model United Nations" (DuEMUN) is a project that started in 2005 (www.duemun.de). It is organized by the Institute of Political Science, the student Association DuEMUN e.V., the Institute for Development and Peace (INEF) and the Institute of East Asian Studies (IN-EAST) at the University Duisburg-Essen.
In the past years students from the University Duisburg-Essen and from international partner universities have convened and debated as delegates in the "UN Security Council", and other UN organs. Moreover, members of
the association participated in various national and international MUNs (e.g. New York, Geneva, Beijing and Lahore). Frequently scholars, ambassadors and politicians were and will be invited for discussions.
Our aim is to apply theoretical concepts of International Relations to practice and to develop networks with international partner universities. A more recent part of the project is to introduce the UN simulation concept to schools and to strengthen the links between pupils and students of educational science at the University of Duisburg-Essen. The DuEMUN Association is a manifestation of the members' commitment to promote the DuEMUN goals in the spirit of ‘students for students'.
