Dauphine MUN is a young association with many projects. Among others:
- The trainings, which take place at university, are spread over three weeks and are held twice a semester. They allow students to familiarize themselves with the United Nations simulation system, and to prepare for larger conferences. They are a good first approach to MUNs, and allow the members of the association to gain confidence in their diplomatic and public speaking skills.
- The workshops, more punctual, are intended to answer the immediate needs for self-improvement of members. Most often, these workshops are an opportunity to invite students from our fellow CINUP associations (Sorbonne pour l’Organisation des Nations Unies, ESCE MUN, Promethei (Inalco), among others).
- The inter-school conferences, called “mini-MUN“, allow students from Dauphine MUN to meet and work with students from other MUN associations in Paris for a day. They are an great opportunity to go beyond trainings, practice newly acquired skills and learn from fellow MUNers from other schools and universities.
- The flagship activity of the association is the MUN conferences organized at the national (Reims, Lyon, Nancy, …) and international level (London, Oxford, Hamburg, Rome …) and to which Dauphine MUN sends delegations. These conferences last several days, allowing the association’s delegates to put in practice everything they learned from their trainings in Paris: all the activities of the year aim to prepare association members for participation in these conferences. Each year is also an opportunity to participate in different MUNs, selected internally.
- Lastly, Dauphine MUN is a member of the Comité Inter-universitaire des Nations Unies de Paris (CINUP), which is responsible for organizing the yearly edition of PIMUN, the Paris International Model United Nations. This conference welcomes over 600 delegates from around the world, for 5 days at the end of May. Members of the association may choose to be part of the team that organizes this conference (the “Secretariat”), or to participate as a delegate, or even as a chair or conference coordinator.
