Diplomacy Sends Its Regards
THE FIFTH SESSION OF MAKASSAR MUN
Model United Nations (also Model UN or MUN) is an academic simulation of the United Nations that aims to educate participants about current events, topics in international relations, diplomacy and the United Nations agenda. The participants role-play as diplomats representing a country or NGO in a simulated session of a committee of the United Nations, such as the Security Council or the General Assembly. Participants research a country, take on roles as diplomats, investigate international issues, debate, deliberate, consult, and then develop solutions to world problems.
Makassar Model United Nations (Maksmun) is the oldest and most prestigious Model UN conference in Eastern-Indonesia. Makassar Model United Nations is organized by Hasanuddin University Model UN community (UNHASMUNCOMMUNITY), a platform for Hasanuddin most passionate and critical students to engage in constructive forum in order to tackle the global challenges.
After the first year if its establishment in 2010, UNHASMUNCLUB feels a huge responsibility to provide a spot for most critical students in Makassar to practice their skills of diplomacy, negotiation, and resolution making. Then after few months of hard-works, the 1st Session of Makassar MUN had finally come to reality.
