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.

Committee Description:

On June 23, 2016, the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union. The Brexit vote and its aftermath has been a contentious issue, not only in the UK, but worldwide. Britain is one the of largest economic and political powers in the world and many feel apprehensive about the impact of Brexit on its global standing. The Conservative government led by PM Theresa May has declared that they intend to invoke Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union, which outlines the formal procedure for withdrawal from the EU, by the end of March 2017.

Brexit is an issue that affects the political, social, and economic spheres of the country in a profound manner. The government has a tough task ahead in trying to negotiate favorable terms of exit with the European Union, defining the terms of its trade relations with other countries, and successfully navigating the nation through the legal, political, social, economic and other changes.

Letter from the Chair:

Dear Delegates,

I am honoured to welcome you all to the British Parliament: House of Commons at LAMUN 2017! My name is Trishila Malhotra and I will be your Chair for this committee. I am a senior at UCLA, and am studying International Development Studies. I grew up in New Delhi, India and moved to the USA only after deciding to pursue my undergraduate studies at UCLA. I have been participating in Model UN since the 9th grade, and continue to be a part of it in college as a member of UCLA’s travel team, and by staffing our two conferences, BruinMUN and LAMUN.

Besides MUN, I am involved with other organizations on campus such as USAC (on-campus student government), and two management consulting-related groups called The Bruin Group and UConsulting. Outside of college, I enjoy reading, playing and composing music, and travelling to new places; so far I have travelled to more than 33 countries around the world and plan to travel to many more. After my time at UCLA, I intend to work with a management consulting firm or pursue further studies in business or international relations.

Brexit has been an issue that has dominated global attention over 2016, and this trend seems set to continue over 2017. As delegates, you will all have to navigate your nation through all of the complexities of the withdrawal process and tackle any problems that arise while doing so. While this task may seem difficult, I am confident that all of you will carry out a high level of debate and comprehensively address all questions that are raised during committee.

I’m looking forward to having a great conference and interacting with all of you at LAMUN! If you have any questions regarding the committee, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Best,
Trishila Malhotra| Chair
