Welcome

MUN Team UZH

Welcome to the homepage of the MUN Team UZH! We are an accredited student organization of the University of Zurich whose objective it is to provide a platform for students interested in the United Nations.

MUN is short for Model United Nations. In our weekly sessions we simulate the UN by representing a certain country’s position towards a controversial issue. The final goal is to draft a resolution which, ideally, every country agrees on.

Being part of our MUN team provides you with numerous benefits, for example:

  • Developing a better understanding of international issues and foreign politics,
  • Broadening your horizon by defending positions that oppose your personal opinion,
  • Gaining diplomatic experience by negotiating compromises,
  • Improving your rhetorical and public speaking skills,
  • Advancing your business English,
  • Expanding your social network by making new friends from around the university but also globally when traveling to international conferences

If you are interested in joining our team, feel free to drop by! We meet once a week in RAI-J-031 at 19:15. For further information on our current topic, check out our studyguide.

In order to become a full member to participate at our special events, please pay our annual membership fee of 30 CHF. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us under info@mun-uzh.org. We look forward to hearing from you!
