ABOUT GERMUN

German Model United Nations is an annual conference set up to prepare university students for other worldwide Model UNs, such as NMUN in New York.

Delegates get to experience international relations and diplomacy while discussing current international issues. The experienced volunteer staff ensures a substantively enriching learning experience for all delegates and prepares participants for other Model UN conferences. In return, we expect a thorough preparation from all delegates.

HISTORY

GerMUN is one of the oldest Model UN conferences in Germany on an academic level, celebrating its 30th birthday in 2022. GerMUN first took place in 1992 in Bad Honnef. Ever since, the location has changed various times, currently interchangeably held in Berlin and Weimar.

It is organized in rotation by the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich, the University of Trier, and the University of Bonn. All universities have a long experience with Model UN and pass it on every year to a new generation of tutors, of which most have already served as staff at National Model United Nations (NMUN) New York and other conferences.
