C-MIMUN 2019 - From Russia with Love

by Kiril Lavrov

While visiting my hometown of Zelenograd on the northwestern edge of Moscow last April, I have decided to explore Eastern Europe's largest Model United Nations conference. The Moscow International Model United Nations (MIMUN) takes place annually since 1989 and have moved to the Moscow State University of International Relations in 1999. Since 2017 they also carry the Name of Vitaly Churkin, to honour Russia's late former ambassador to the United Nations.

MUN has no borders - Semester abroad in Dublin, Ireland

When I started the University in Germany I decided it was time to try something new and was reluctant to go back to MUN… “A new era was starting”, that is what I used to say. However I might have also been afraid to go back to something I loved, but with different people, in a different, more professional atmosphere….and also at the other side of the world. Time passed and at the end I could not resist the temptation and went back to MUN in Mannheim. I met wonderful people and I can honestly say it is a decision I will never regret. It was like having a bit of home in a completely new city for me. Two years passed, incredibly fast I should add, and soon I was exploring another city: DUBLIN.

MUN in Konstanz

It’s October and you’ve probably settled into the new semester and have eagerly prepared for our MUN sessions or are already excited for the conference you are planning to attend this semester.

But have you ever wondered how MUN might be at a different university? Maybe you have already heard different ideas for sessions from other delegates you met or thought of a cool idea for our society and wondered if that has already been done.

Kick-Offs coming up!

Have you been doing MUN before or have always been interested in checking it out? Or have you always wondered what exactly MUN really is? Take your chance and join our kick-off, either on Monday 11th 09 or 18th 09 (or both days if you wish!!) and get together with us, meet new faces and discover the world of Model UN at the University of Mannheim. We'll tell you a few exciting things, get you started with MUN (as much as you want to of course) and have a fun evening. We'll have drinks and pizza provided :)
We're excited to meet you!

Magical experience in Harvard WorldMUN 2017 - Montréal

The first step of our delegation’s official journey to Harvard WorldMUN 2017 began in Frankfurt airport on the morning of March 11. From then on it was clear that we had ahead of us a week which would becoming a lasting memory for each member of our delegation. From the inflight time to the stopover in Amsterdam, we could constantly be heard laughing and exchanging our excitement for the upcoming week.

Largest delegation ever enjoyed their trip to ScotMUN X

This year the amazing number of 22 delegates found their way to Edinburgh to attend ScotMUN X. Since Scotland’s premier MUN conference is famous for their high-quality debates as well as for their socials, it is a tradition for MUN Mannheim to attend this incredible event every year anew. This year attendance was remarkable and we sent our largest MUN Mannheim delegation ever!
