The Model United Nations (MUN) circuit will be abuzz this weekend as UEM (University of Engineering and Management) is back with its MUN, the UEM Conclave of Nations 2021, on September 18 and 19, 2021. Registration closes on September 17, midnight.
The third edition of the conclave is in collaboration with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). Student delegates will be debating on the issues of forced displacement of people. They will be facing real-world issues with diplomacy and politics.
“UEM Conclave of Nations is not just a diplomatic event. We have an emotional attachment that is backed by a lot of hard work and effort. MUN gives students an opportunity to voice their opinion and stand against what is unjust,” said Sohini Chakraborty, a third-year Electronics and Communication Engineering student of UEM, who is also the director general of UEM Conclave of Nations 2021.
The UEM Conclave of Nations will have four committees — Disarmament and International Security Committee (DISEC), United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC), Seneca Falls Convention, and Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC).
The Disarmament and International Security Committee will address the grievances regarding the international crisis and the constant dominance over land, power, authority, and life while keeping diplomacy and maintaining international peace.
United Nations Human Rights Council, the second committee, will give the students a platform to voice their thoughts on maintaining a balance between human rights irrespective of their caste or creed are entitled to liberty, freedom from slavery and freedom of thoughts and expressions.
The third committee, Seneca Falls Convention, aims to create a better world for women. Members of this committee will debate on the representation of women in the world.
The Organisation of Islamic Cooperation is the fourth committee, which will delve into the geopolitical issues of the Islamic world.
“We live in trying times when the principles that hold together the very framework of our democracy is being held up for scrutiny. The secular and pluralistic fabric of our society appears to be coming off.
