How does the UN work? What does the work of a diplomat look like? How do States resolve current conflicts of the world?

If you are a student and find these questions interesting, FAUMUN is the perfect project for you. FAUMUN is the Model United Nations (MUN) project of the FAU. Students take on the role of diplomats and develop solutions for current problems from the point of view of a specific country. The entire winter term consists of a comprehensive preparation for the biggest MUN simulation worldwide, the NMUN in New York. This conference is held at the end of march and is attended by over 5000 students from all over the world. The preparation consists of speech and negotiation training, the acquisition of advanced knowledge of UN rules of procedure and current crises, as well as of preparatory MUN conferences in Erlangen, Munich and Nuremberg. A week in Berlin enables students to talk with real diplomats and to get an insight into the country represented in New York from practitioners.

The project takes place in English and is interdisciplinary. The only conditions of participation are therefore good English skills, a matriculation in a study course of the FAU and an interest in international relations. Prior knowledge about the UN is not necessary.
