LisboMUN organises throughout the year several MUN Debates, simulating different UN committees. These MUN Debates have various topics, focusing on current international affairs and issues.
With MUN Debates, our goal is to give students a first contact with MUN, as well as a space for those who already do MUN to practice.
Types of MUN Debates
We have 2 different types of MUN Debates:
“Casual” MUN Debate
In these debates, students can simply show up on the day, without the need of prior registration.
We start by giving students a quick recap of what are Rules of Procedure, and explain to them how to participate in the debate.
Students then choose a country to represent, and after a short research regarding the topic, we start the debate.
These types of events are perfect if you are curious about MUN and have never done it before, or if you want to practice your debating skills and quick thinking!
“Formal” MUN Debate
In this format of MUN Debate, students need to register in advance. We will announce the debate and topic, and open registrations for those who wish to participate. After that, our team will allocate each delegate a country, and a Position Paper is required from each delegation before the day of the debate, to ensure every delegate has researched the topic and their allocated country’s position.
We also give you a Package of Information, in order for everyone to have all the info required to know how to do MUN.
On the day of the event, we all come together and debate!
These MUN Debates are perfect if you want to practice for MUN Conferences, or if you want to do MUN more seriously! Nonetheless, students without prior experience definitely can and are encouraged to also participate!
We organise them in different universities in Lisbon, so if you cannot attend one, maybe the next one will be near you!
If you wish that we organise a MUN Debate in your university, or if you have any suggestions, contact us at email@example.com.
