Model United Nations - BISMUN III
The British International School Model United Nations took place this year from the 19th of May till the 22nd. Model United Nations is a simulation of a debate of resolutions at a United Nations level. Through this, students learn about diplomacy, international relations and the United Nations.
The theme of this year’s BISMUN was ‘Living to Work or Working to Live?’ and with the tremendous effort made by all the students who participated as delegates, we were able to commence with fruitful debates. We would not have been as successful if it were not for the students taking a passionate approach to their chosen topics and representing their nations convincingly. With the immense help of our secretariat and student officers we were able to kick off BISMUN to a great start.
The committees consisted of the General Assembly 2 (economic and financial), General Assembly 3 (social, humanitarian and cultural), the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), the Human Rights Council (HRC) and last but not least the Special Conference on women and work in Saudi Arabia. These committees then debated resolutions on numerous topics of discussion that ranged from minimum wages in developing nations, to improving working conditions and participation of women in Saudi Arabia in the workplace.
