ScotMUN 2016 - Glamorous Mannheim Delegation
A grand total of twelve delegates of MUN Mannheim made their way through five countries all the way to Edinburgh to attend ScotMUN IX in early March. The premier Scottish MUN conference promised and delivered exciting debates, interesting solutions to unresolved issues and the famed ScotMUN socials.
Delegates of MUN Mannheim were present in every ScotMUN committee except the ICJ the UNSC and due to an unfortunate illness, the UK General Election committee, with our former vice president Hannes Hahn chairing in the IMF. In these committees our Delegates discussed a wide array of issues ranging from the issue of female suicide bombers in UN Women to resolving water conflicts in DISEC. It was in this very committee, that our delegation member and University of Mannheim alumni Philipp Sander won best delegate as representative of Sweden.
The socials also proved to be deserving of their reputation as some of the best in the business, with the Friday night Michelin-starred dinner and subsequent ceilidh once again topping everything else. ScotMUN IX was an extraordinary experience that will undoubtedly be repeated at ScotMUN X in 2017.
Special thanks to Lawrence H. Krug and our head delegate Max A. Wosnitza for organizing our trip.
