Death of the Border: Eliminating Lines of Demarcation Between States | Valletta, Malta | Friday, 15. September 2017

That time of the year is here again: the annual edition of MaltMUN is returning, and it’s only getting bigger and better! This year, the Conference shall be held between the 15th and 17th of September 2017. The Main theme will be ‘Death of the Border: Eliminating lines of Demarcation between States', emphasising the struggle between sovereignty of States and globalisation. Over the three days, this issue will be tackled from different aspects within the context of our different committees’ competences.

Whilst building on the solid ground established in previous editions of MaltMUN, we will be adding another committee to ensure diverse options for everyone! The prestigious Security Council and ICJ will be retained, whilst another three new specialised committees will be simulated, namely ECOFIN, SPECPOL and WHO. The minds behind this year’s edition of MaltMUN have paid close attention to target those who are passionate about macro-economics, politics and the movement of people, whilst also ensuring that the issue of health in the international sphere is given its due importance. Committees will be held inside the Valletta’s most prominent and prestigious venues, including our very own Parliament building, ensuring that participants will get the full experience of what it feels like to be a diplomat! All this comes at a mere €35 delegate fee, which covers all venues and related expenses for the whole three-day conference.

Additionally, this year’s edition of MaltMUN will include a superb upgrade in the social events programme, allowing delegates to network and socialise, and immersing participants in delegating the full experience of what Model United Nations is all about. For the amazing price of €25, the MaltMUN 2017 Social Pack shall cover the Delegate Drinks on Friday evening with a sensational array of nibbles (the Maltese way!), and a free flowing wine-and-beer event on Saturday night! Don’t miss this incredible opportunity to learn more about International Affairs, whilst having the opportunity to develop your public speaking and diplomatic skills in a most engaging and vibrant environment.

Applications are now open!
