WHAT IS BIMUN?

The United Nations Association of Serbia (www.unaserbia.rs) has been organizing, international conference „Belgrade International Model UN – BIMUN“, a simulation of the work of the UN bodies, since 2004.

What sets BIMUN apart is the high level of knowledge gained, modeling with firm rules of procedure based upon the real working procedures of UN bodies, as well as the very current issues that are covered. Emphasis is placed on the preparation period for participants and realistic simulation.

The project team is consisted of successful students, best participants from previous BIMUN conferences. During the several month-long preparation period, the team participates in all the aspects of planning and organizing a project. When the conference is finished, best participants work on the BIMUN Plus – a research project. In that sense, BIMUN remains a whole-year activity, a process where a large number of successful young people participates, gaining new knowledge and experience, in a fun and interactive way, in accordance with contemporary educational principles.

Belgrade International Model United Nations – BIMUN 2017 (15 – 19 March 2017) is the 14th annual international youth conference simulating the work of UN bodies on the following topics:

Security Council: Non-state actors as a danger to international peace and security

Security Council – Crisis Committee: Situation on the Arabian peninsula

Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC): The role of multinational corporations in sustainable development

Human Rights Council: Xenophobia as a threat to human rights

UN Environment Assembly  (UNEA): Renewable energy sources as a basis of sustainable development

UNESCO Executive Board: Fostering global citizenship as an alternative to extremism

 Our 14th conference will be focused on the theme "Global Governance for the 21st Century''

Participants of the conference shall be social studies students from all over the world. In total, BIMUN will host approximately 250 participants from over 35 countries.

The main goal of the BIMUN Project is to have students practically get familiar with mechanisms of international cooperation and basic diplomatic approach, such as negotiations, peaceful conflict solutions, consensus building, as well as to understand the importance of the UN's role in the contemporary world. „BIMUN 2017“ will be an opportunity for diplomatic debates, with respect to multiculturalism and democratic values, but also for connecting young leaders. The conference will have a rich social life and special events.

The way of work will enable the participants to present chosen country, different to their own. Delegations will be formed by the BIMUN Organizing committee. During the preparation period, the participants will be in touch with country delegations from different UN bodies in order to form a common strategy. The working language of the Conference will be English.

The best participants according to the evaluation will receive a special certificate, whereas best domestic delegates will have the opportunity to be nominated for BIMUN delegations at other MUNs.

After thirteenth successfully organized international conferences (2004-2016), BIMUN has a high reputation among successful students and relevant institutions and organizations in the world today. Our goal is to maintain that good tradition so "BIMUN 2017" will be organized at the highest level.
