The Georgia Tech National Model UN Team, consisting of 17 delegates, travelled to Boston, MA from February 16-20, 2011 to participate in the Harvard National Model UN Conference 2011. The team is sponsored by the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs (INTA), the European Union Center of Excellence (EUCE), and the Georgia Tech Center for International Business and Education Research (CIBER).

The conference hosted 3000 students from nearly 250 universities and colleges across 39 nations. The delegates from Georgia Tech represented The Kingdom of Belgium at the various General Assembly, Economic and Social Council and Regional Bodies Committees, learning and discussing today’s most relevant issues of international diplomacy ranging from the Taliban to Universal Jurisdiction to the expansion of NATO. The GT delegates spent six tough months researching Belgium’s domestic and foreign policies on the assigned topics, writing position papers and learning rules and procedures of the conference.

This pre-conference preparation aided us in articulating and defending the opinions of the real UN ambassadors, and in being more effective by contributing to debate, caucusing, and resolution-writing. At the conference, delegates honed their analytical, lobbying, diplomacy, debating, resolution writing and most importantly, their public speaking skills, often times speaking to a group of over 400 students. While being an excellent academic forum, the conference also provided a great networking forum for future leaders, hosting social events like the Club night and the customary Delegate Dance. The MUN participants came away from this conference having met people from all over the world, with a greater understanding of the problems that plague the world, and a stronger commitment to find solutions to these problems.
