Deens Academy Model United Nations Conference 2020
28th and 29th August
Letter from the Secretary-General
Dear Delegates and Faculty Advisors,
It’s with immense pleasure and honour that I, Kushal Mital, your Secretary-General for the Third Edition of Deens Academy Model United Nations, welcome you to DMUN’20 to be held on 28th and 29th of August, 2020.
As always, DMUN, the MUN with a difference, won’t be hinging to the status quo. Providing you with 4 novel, exciting and even nerve-wracking committees along with a truly special IPC. First, The Historical Security Council, a chance to rehash mistakes of the past and have at it in a specialized timeline. The Chinese Communist Party Politburo, a truly unique committee with an agenda which couldn’t be more relevant, and never seen before in any conference ever. The SOCHUM, not just a General Assembly, but one with multi-faceted agendas that are pertinent, relevant, and defined in many ways, to humankind. The Continuous Crisis Committee will offer anything but redundancy, with a classified agenda tailored to keep delegates on their feet with their heart rates raised. Last but not the least, the IPC, ready to have a fiery press session in each committee. Your Dais too is nothing short of a novel. While they certainly don’t fall short in terms of experience with over 12 MUNs of EB experience between them, the EB members are the reflection of how DMUN strives to provide an experience quite different to that of a traditional Circuit Conference and their approach will represent the same. Whether you’re a seasoned MUNner, hoping to make your mark on this conference as you have before, or an absolute newcomer, it’s daunting to be in a conference, we hope DMUN is different. The best advice I can give you with my tenure in the circuit is, have fun, be bold, and exceed your limits. Whether it's gaining the courage to raise your voice in committee even though you fear your research isn’t enough or your decision to make a 250-page Treaty in the middle of the committee, take the leap, if nothing else, you’ll feel better off knowing you gave it your all and it might just make the MUN more worthwhile.
In these entropic times, the times where change seems to be the only constant, I hope DMUN can act as a channel for conducive and invigorating debate, the most exciting committee time, solutions you never thought you’d bring up or learn about and above all else, extreme fun and the opportunity to meet fellow delegates to allow you to establish relations that will last years to come. Be trailblazers, be avid and active, be the one to make the most illogical mistakes, be the one who stands against the bloc. Just be there, be bold.
Looking Forward to Hosting every one of you,
“Where the willingness is great, the difficulties cannot be great.”- Niccolò Machiavelli
