Dear prospective delegates, and distinguished chairs of IsarMUN2018,
It is our utmost pleasure to invite you to the 11th edition of IsarMUN in Munich. Our overarching motto for this year’s conference is Embracing diversity and fighting for equality - a topic we carefully selected because of its great societal relevance and also because it highlights aspects of the UN system that often fall short behind the issues of peace and security.
Diversity, on the one hand, defines the range of people or things that are different from each other. On the other side, it is the idea behind the concept of including and embracing just these differences as opportunities. United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres claimed in 2017 that “Diversity is a richness, not a threat”.
We at IsarMUN 2018 agree wholeheartedly and see it as the future of our society: Embracing diversity means fighting sexism, ageism, anti-Muslim hate crimes, xenophobia, racism, anti-Semitism and other forms of bigotry.
While Model United Nations itself cannot solve the aforementioned issues, participation in such a conference is an expression of open-mindedness, curiosity for other cultures and ideas, as well as the desire to learn more about foreign policy and the diplomatic backbone of our globalised society. It is an opportunity to value and celebrate other ideas, cultural backgrounds
Our team is consisting of the Executive Board and the Secretariat work tirelessly to perfect IsarMUN 2018 for you. We are very much looking forward to welcoming you in Munich in November!
