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.

Dear Delegates,

Welcome to BruinMUN 2017. My name is Aditya Agarwal and I have the honor of serving as your chairperson for this year’s session of the United Nations Peacebuilding Commission. Although not a conventional General Assembly committee, the UNPBC is guaranteed to be detail-oriented and challenging, and I look forward to a weekend of eloquent debate.

Hailing from India, I have been competing at Model UN conferences since the past six years, and I often travel with the UCLA team for intercollegiate conferences. I am currently a rising sophomore intending to pursue a double major in Economics and International Development Studies.

This year’s topics address some of the more sidetracked, yet politically pivotal topics of the developing world. The UNPBC itself shall be unique, in that it would only aim to alleviate inter-governmental and civil tensions but will also strategize for post-conflict redevelopment of the member states.

If you have any questions regarding the content of this background guide or the topic/committee in general, please do not hesitate to contact me at any point. I look forward to seeing you this coming November.

Best,
Aditya Agarwal | Chair unpbc@bruinmun.org
