Model United Nations at UCLA

Since 1950

Model United Nations at UCLA provides a forum for discussion of international relations and events through dynamic and academically stimulating simulation of the United Nations. We host two major Model UN conferences annually, and provide opportunities for members to travel nationally and internationally to compete in collegiate MUN conferences. MUN at UCLA holds weekly general meetings and frequent social events featuring guest speakers, conference and travel training, discussion of international events, and more.

Participation in Model UN activities promotes desirable and marketable traits such as public and impromptu speaking, networking, international engagement, and creative problem solving.

BruinMUN, our fall quarter high school conference, brings approximately 1000 high school students to UCLA for a weekend of debate, healthy competition, and fun. The conference, entering its 21st year, exposes high school students to UCLA and provides leadership experience for our staffers.

LAMUN, our spring quarter college conference, has an eight year history. Several hundred participants from dozens of domestic and international colleges and universities converge in Los Angeles annually to simulate UN style debate in a variety of unique, “crisis based” committees.

Our travel team is open to all and sends delegations to several conferences annually. Unlike many other MUN programs, members can try out for each conference.

Our primary goal is to continue growing and improving our conferences, travel team, and events. We strive to provide a consistently high quality experience at no cost to our members.

British Parliament House of Commons: Keep our Doctors in our Borders

The invocation of Article 50 brings many dire consequences. These include but are not limited to economic, social and political ramifications. Namely, the continuation of National Health Service (NHS) is at stake.

The NHS functions as a pathway to gain free medical services where they are not easily available to UK residents. These services include health check ups, free emergency services and free admission to hospitals. All of this is made possible by doctors who are employed by the NHS, 42% of whom are immigrants. As a result their residency and eligibility to work is in jeopardy. Moreover the UK does not have the funds to train and replace these doctors, so as a result the NHS is at risk of falling apart. These services are vital to a functioning society and treats Health care as a basic human right and not a privilege.

This committee must come together to come up with a solution that does not treat human lives as mere collateral damage and to keep in mind that human lives are at stake.
