The German Model United Nations is an annual Conference set up to prepare students for other worldwide Model UNs, such as the NMUN in New York. GerMUN is one of the oldest Model UN Conferences in Germany on an academic level, celebrating its 29th birthday in 2021. It is organized in rotation by the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich, the Otto-von-Guericke-Universität Magdeburg, the University of Trier and the University of Bonn. All universities have a long expierence with Model UN, which is passed on every year to a new generation of tutors, of which most have already served as staff at the NMUN in New York and other conferences. Hence GerMUN provides delegates with sophisticated staff and sees its main task in a qualitative and time-consuming conference, expecting in return a thorough preparation from all Delegates. The next conference will take place from the 25th to 28th Februrary 2021 in the Jugendherberge Berlin Wannsee.
GerMUN first took place in 1992 in Bad Honnef. Ever since, the location has been changed various times, currently interchangeably held in Berlin and Weimar. At GerMUN, various committees will meet. Each committee has three topics. Background guides and rules of procedure will be available for registered Delegations. Please note that GerMUN does not use the Harvard Model UN rules, hence e.g. yielding the time to the chair is not possible.
