About WebMUn 2018
WebMUN 2018 will be the fifth edition of Webster University's MUN Conference. Located in Vienna's historic 2nd district, this conference will sure be a great experience and learning opportunity for all delegates.
This year's conference will consist of 7 interconnected committees:
United Nations Security Council
Diplomatic Corps (non-assigned diplomats)
The Complexity of Globalization and issues with Human rights
(with emphasis on economical Concerns in third world countries)
The world is moving faster and faster, however can our politicians keep up with the new challenges that come with globalisation? The population is rapidly rising and we need to find solutions on current and future issues. With Trump now in power and protectionism on the horizon, we need change. Turmoil in Syria is still going on and fragile states are left and right, how are we going to help those who need it most?
In this years WebMun we will discuss economic and political issues. That's why we have a new committee "ECOSOC" to make this edition even more realistic.
"Where globalisation means, as it so often does, that the rich and powerful now have new means to further enrich and empower themselves at the cost of the poorer and weaker, we have a responsibility to protest in the name of universal freedom. "
- Nelson Mandela
In 2014, WebMUN invented the interconnectivity system, and we will make it even better this year. The composition of countries in the committees is similar, thus a country is represented in several committees. The delegates representing these countries will then meet to discuss and co-ordinate their efforts and policies.
At WebMUN 2018 we are happy to once again have the Diplomatic Corps committee, aimed at making the interconnectivity aspect of the conference even more efficient and exciting. The diplomatic corps committee will consist of non-assigned diplomats for the most important countries.They will not be assigned to one of the other committees, but rather coordinate their country's efforts in all the various committees.
For example, the U.S. diplomat will be responsible for coordinating the action between the the French Ambassador in the Security Council, the French Delegate in the European Council and the French Representative in the ECOSOC.
