UN4MUN Project

Category : Newsletter

Indonesian Student Association For International Studies (ISAFIS) is currently  Running UN4MUN project to hold The First UN4MUN conference in South-East Asia. This conference, will be held in Bangkok, Thailand from 17th – 20th January 2018.  UN4MUN is the only Model United Nations (MUN) procedure developed and promoted by the United Nations Department of Public Information (UN DPI) as an official response from UN to correct MUN procedures established and conducted by universities around the world that do not follow the actual rules of procedure, negotiation process and values of the United Nations (UN). ISAFIS believes that UN4MUN is the only Model United Nations procedure that aims to promote UN values and processes accurately, and that such values and process are crucial to achieving and maintaining world peace and there is an urgency to educate people about UN4MUN procedure.

An addition to hold The First UN4MUN conference simulation in South-East Asia , ISAFIS is currently working with students from Chulalangkorn University, Mahidol University, Kasetsart University, Thammasat University, and Assumption University of Thailand  to manage all preparation that needs for the conferences and build a plan to ensure that the participants have the best conference experience possible. We already manage a plan to invite 500 participants particularly from south east-asian countries and outside south-east asian countries to attend this conference.

ISAFIS also met with the Centara Grand hotel in Bangkok discussing about venue for the conference and detailed accommodation aspects to ensure that the conference runs smoothly for the participants.  Centara Grand Hotel is located in the heart of Bangkok, on top of Central World Mall in Bangkok, Thailand.

ISAFIS also have obtained the full support of the Indonesia-Thailand Chamber of Commerce to hold the conference, and are currently reaching out to other chambers of commerce in Thailand, such as India-Thai Chamber of Commerce.

This conference is also supported by Mr. William Yotive. Mr. William Yotive is currently the Model UN coordinator for World Federation of United Nations Associations (WFUNA).
