It is with great joy and pride that I welcome you all to the eleventh iteration of VJTI Model United Nations or simply, “VJMUN”. VJMUN was created in 2006 in order to help equip the newer generations with an understanding of complex global geo-political situations and to train them in the diplomacy required to tackle these.
Since the very beginning, we at VJMUN have always presented challenging committees with unique agendas. We present agendas that are daring, exciting, and which few other Model United Nations Conferences host. This year, much in the same vein, we have decided to explore a relationship between two countries. A relationship, which over the course of the past century, has defined much of the political landscape of the wold as it is today. Yes, we are speaking about the terse relationship United States of America and Russia. In the International Convention of Allied Countries (ICAC), our historic committee for this year, we will be exploring the roots of their rivalry, going back to a time where they were united against one enemy, and in doing so also explore the uneasy and tense partnership forged between the two to fight a common enemy. In the Futuristic Security Council (FSC), our futuristic committee this year, we shall be exploring a possible future climax to their animosity, by presenting a situation that is very much a possibility considering current scenarios.
Those who have been a part of the VJMUN experience do not need a second invitation to apply. Do you think you can step up to the challenge? Do you have it in you to VJMUN?Yours sincerely,
The VJTI Model United Nations or ‘VJ MUN’ organized by the Debate and Literary Arts Society (VJTI) completed 10 years in January 2015. In 2016, while in its eleventh iteration, we aim to innovate further and make the event more enjoyable and accessible to everyone. VJMUN presents an environment where delegates can debate and discuss innovative circumstances and unique events, the likes of which are rarely seen in MUN’s today. Through two days of fiery debate, delegates will hopefully come a little closer to figuring out their role in the world that surrounds them and develop as citizens of the world in a truly unique sense. VJMUN’s mission is to spread awareness of international issues and ignite the spirit of diplomacy among students through these UN simulations.
The VJTI Model United Nations (VJMUN) is the oldest MUN held by any engineering college in Mumbai. It is organized and conducted by the Debates and Literary Arts Society of VJTI, a student society of VJTI. The secretariat comes from a diverse set of engineering streams and backgrounds, each member of the secretariat shares a common interest in international relations and a motivation to spread awareness of global issues.
Other MUNs need to make sales pitches because they need your monetary patronage. We don't. We pride ourselves on staging committees that are second-to-none in debate, and immaculate in organization. VJMUN also remains one of the few MUN’s that continue to host double delegation committees, where negotiation and debate can occur in tandem. We are committed to delivering an amazing delegate experience (refreshments are also on the house, in case you were wondering). Those who have been a part of the VJMUN experience do not need a second invitation to apply. Come, be a part of our legacy!
