NMUN-Munich Delegation in 2020: Namibia

Covid-19/NMUN 2020: Unfortunately, NMUN 2020 (New York City) was cancelled due to the current crisis related to Covid-19. Nevertheless, LMU Munich is honored by the three "Position Paper Awards" that NMUN, the hosting organization, awarded to our project-seminar representing the Republic of Namibia. This recognition shows that although sadly this year no conference could take place, our preparations were indeed fruitful. Embarking on a journey to engage with yet another inspiring and interesting country, we are thankful that our team was able to deepen its understanding of global, African and Namibian politics. It was an experience both chalenging and rewarding. We will, of course, continue to do our best to "hold high the banner of liberty", as the national anthem of Namibia states.

Our main objective is to deal openly and in an unbiased manner with the positions of other countries and cultures, to understand the complex nature of international affairs, and to understand and solve negotiations with professional sensitivity and diplomatic conduct. Delegations from LMU Munich have been participating at New York’s NMUN Conference since 1987. In 2019, the project-seminar was proud to send a delegation representing the State of Israel to NMUN New York, which took place from the 24th to the 28th of March. In this competitive simulation with almost 5.500 participating students from more than 400 different institutions, including renowned universities from all over the globe, the team was able to impress and win various "outstanding awards" – similar to the years before, when our delegation was awarded for its “outstanding” work representing Brazil (2018), India (2017), France (2016), Belarus (2015), China (2014), Qatar (2013), Russia (2011), and the UAE (2010).

GerMUN 2020: Together with a dedicated staff of tutors and alumni, our project-group acted as host for the German Model United Nations 2020, held in the beautiful city of Weimar from February 27th to March 1st, 2020. To find out more about this yearly conference, please visit the GerMUN Homepage.
