MUN Alicante Model United Nations

From June 9 to 11 2023

What is MUN?

Model United Nations, MUN for short, are conferences for students based on what takes place at the United Nations (UN). There are hundreds of conferences worldwide to participate in and students attend as delegates representing members of the UN. During the conferences, the delegates sit on committees and discuss topics which are relevant in the UN at that time. Strict debating and voting rules are followed. Conferences are usually held in English.

Through MUN, students acquire a range of skills. They learn how:
1. to research and analyse information,
2. to debate and negotiate in groups,
3. to confidently speak in public,
4. it is important for every inhabitant of our planet to take responsibility for the problems affecting us,
5. to interact with people from different cultures and backgrounds, and
6. in some cases, to speak and write in English more fluently. 

Apart from the educational experience, MUN conferences also offer a social side as well and students form many long-lasting friendships. But be warned, MUN is addictive. Once you start, you will not be able to stop!

Format and structure

The tournament’s debate format will be the MUN Conference. You can check all the information of the MUN Alicante in the following link. 

The delegations will hold five debates throughout the MUN.

 Delegates will know in advance their topic and delegation, therefore they might be able to prepare all the documents and speeches necessary for taking action on the debate.

The registration fee for IDC 2023 is 40€ per debater. The registration fee covers lunches and dinners during the tournament schedule and other tournament expenses. Teams should make their own reservations and payment directly to hotels. 

Debaters must be between 16 and 18 years old at the time of the tournament.

Teams can have 3 to 5 members.

Judges must be at least 18 years old and have completed secondary-level education by the start of the tournament.

N=1 rule applies, i.e. every delegation is required to register as many judges as there are teams.

For delegations consisting of a single team and unable to provide a judge, an additional fee of 50€ applies.

Once you complete Stage 2 registration, please allow for up to 48 hours for your invoice containing your fees and payment instructions to be issued.

In case there will be more teams registered as we can accept we will make the selection on the basis of date of registration and  diversity, following the principle to have as many countries as possible represented.
