The University completed its first Model United Nations Conference for Schools in July 2014
At the conference we welcomed over 50 students aged 14-18 from local and regional schools to take part in organised debates and review current global challenges, ranging from ISIS in Iraq, through to women’s rights and children in armed conflict.
Working as groups divided into General Assembly, Human Rights Council, and the Security Council, the students represented different countries and were provided with ‘real-time’ updates on conflicts and developing situations across the globe, all of which impacted discussions and priorities during realistic UN-styled ‘caucuses’ (assemblies).
