The much awaited Fall Edition of IIT Guwahati Model United Nations is back

Diplomacy is an art. Research and an understanding of policies are the essential colors to paint the blank canvas of an MUN conference. This novel canvas is the simulation of the highest level of world diplomacy – the United Nations.A year back, MUN knocked the doors of North East’s largest Techno-management festival, Techniche as IIT Guwahati hosted the fall edition of its very own conference, and created quite a stir as it did so. Delegates from all over the nation, and also from overseas, convened under the finest of chairpersons and carried out exhilarating discussions on contemporary and historical issues for the 3 days of IITGMUN. The embassies of Sweden and Israel sent their greetings and support while the Swedish Ambassador to India, Mr Harald Sandberg and the Maharaja of Tripura, Pradyot Manikya witnessed a few sessions in person to encourage the delegates.

The fall edition of the IIT Guwahati MUN conference will be held during Techniche from 4th to 6th of September 2015. The IITG MUN provides a hands-on experience of cooperative negotiations while encompassing the profusion of world views and broadening our view of the world we live in. Needless to say, it promises an excellent level of debate, and an unforgettable experience for everyone. The following 3 councils will be simulated in the conference:

1. Security Council (SC): Nations have long deployed their troops for battle. But not all bullets are fired from a patriot’s arsenal; not all blood adorning the heathen land was shed in the country’s service and not all chauvinistic valor upholds the integrity of a nation’s flag. Come join us from 4th to 6th September and mark a dent in deciding the future of warfare.

2. International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA): On the 26th of April 1986, mankind woke up from a slumber it had been in since the Second Great War. With the Chernobyl meltdown, the nightmare of nuclear disaster resurfaced. As our eyes struggle to focus on the questions of feasibility, of viability, of our preparedness for judicious use of a technology the ugly side of which we have seen 3 times too many; we have to get the earth under our feet. With Chernobyl in hindsight, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) convenes on 24th September 1986 to decide the fate of this form of energy, the fate of us. Join this historical simulation at the IITG MUN 2015. The platform awaits your voice.

3. European Club Association (ECA): Politics and policy pervades just war and doom, as is evidenced more and more as sports organizations make headlines for all the wrong reasons. With sports increasingly mirroring society and taking up from there some unpleasant characteristics like inequality and corruption, diplomatic discussion becomes ever more important.

As the final committee at the IITGMUN, European Club Association convenes to lay down the guidelines for the highly controversial Financial Fair Play and discuss the course of action on the uncomfortable questions raised by the Qatar WC bid. The applications for delegates and executive board have been open for quite some time now, and with such a diverse set of agendas and committees, it would be interesting to see what transpires as the conference opens its doors from the 4th to 6th of September 2015.
