The Victorian Model United Nations Conference (VICMUN) is a three day event which explores in the intricacies of diplomacy in an organised and professional setting. The event will be hosted at Swinburne University of Technology for the first time in 2017, and will see between 100-150 delegates from around Australia attend and participate in debate.
Model United Nations (MUN) provides students with the opportunity to engage in academically oriented discussion and debate about the greatest challenges facing our international system. Through committee debate, caucusing, and resolution writing, students work to create solutions to pressing global issues while simultaneously articulating and defending the policies of the real-world governments they represent.
Historically, VicMUN has rotated between The University of Melbourne, Monash University and La Trobe University, and 2017 will be the first year that it leaves this circuit to enter a completely new sphere. With this breakout of tradition, the Secretariat of VicMUN hopes to show off the various marvels which Swinburne, and the greater Hawthorn/Glenferrie area features.
