This upcoming weekend, UConn’s Model United Nations will be holding a conference for high school students. The conference will run from Friday, November 13 to Sunday, November 15, 2015.
At this conference over 300 high school delegates will debate various UN topics including illegal organ trade, the Syrian refugee crisis, and treatment of political prisoners. This year, UCMUN is allowing students to choose from 15 different UN committees, including a first-time ever crisis committee that will be discussing the 1979 Hostage Crisis in Iran.
Model UN is advised by Prof. David Richards. (POLS)
