The Aberystwyth Crisis and Model UN Society (ACMUN) run Crisis Games (modelled on the very successful InterPol Department Games) and holds Model UN simulation, occasionally attending national events.
In Model UN we give you the opportunity to debate the issues affecting our world in a wide range of simulations using the format of the United Nations. Participants often have to take uncomfortable positions and defend their chosen countries' poor records on a wide range of topics. Everyone will attempt to put forward resolutions that either benefit them or veto proposals that hurt participants and/or their interests, which is a unique feature to our Model UN. You don’t need to have any previous knowledge of the topic to participate as long as you look up your country's involvement on the issue at hand.
Previous Model UN events have included "UN, Fall of Afghanistan" held by the UN Security Council or "UNHCR, Refugee crisis". We also hold meetings from the past such as the "Treaty of Versailles" MUN and the "Annexation of Crimea" MUN.
Modeled on the highly successful department games, Crisis Games are a dynamic and complex geopolitical simulation of potential and past crises. Teamwork, complex problems, backroom deals and the application of creative solutions is what makes Crisis Games unique and thrilling. You do not need to have any previous knowledge of the event or scenario to play our Crisis Events.
Last year, these have included events such as the "Russian Civil War" Crisis, "Suez Crisis" and "Franco-Prussian War" Crisis.
This year in ACMUN we will also be expanding to cover a range of Interpol related activities inlcuding hosting Guest speakers. We will also be introducing weekly socials for a good night out and a chance to make some friends.
