In our increasingly interconnected world, the role of international organizations have become much more important for interstate diplomacy.
Model United Nations, or MUN, is a simulation of the real United Nations in which students learn to negotiate, debate, and be diplomatic while discussing real issues that affect today’s world. Universities from around the world participate in these MUN conferences and the University of Tsukuba is no different.
The Tsukuba Model United Nations group formed in 2013 and has participated in several conferences in the United States, notably one of the largest MUN conferences in Washington DC. Our group, which consists of students from a wide range of countries and backgrounds, has grown in just a few years to become a symbol of Tsukuba’s unique international culture and is proof that people around the world can put aside their differences and come together to solve the world’s problems.
