LSE YouthMUN is an annual conference for secondary school students to learn more about current affairs through an intellectual simulation of United Nations Bodies. The conference aims to deepen delegates knowledge of global issues, meet like-minded individuals, learn more about LSE and hone diplomacy and other transferrable skills that will benefit them in their pursuit of future academic and professional aspirations. The Conference is accessible to students with little or no experience of MUN, whilst also providing an introduction to what MUN is like at university level.
Two years ago, we held a very successful conference on the topic of UN Global Issues of Refugees. Mr. Don Flynn, Director of The Migrants' Rights Network delivered the keynote speech on 'Why the Refugee Crisis is actually a crisis of Policy'. Delegates then separated into different committees to discuss issues relating to legal protection, humanitarian aid and the long term economic and social impacts of the refugee crisis.
This year we plan to hold an even better conference. Registration and Conference details will be updated closer to the time.
