GIMUN Conference

«Addressing conflicts and crisis: the new perspectives of the regional and international institutions»

The Western narrative about conflicts fails to encompass and recognize the efforts of regional organizations in the resolution of said conflicts. We chose for this year to hold debates showcasing their abilities in doing so, and their importance in mediation. Our Conference’s theme will revisit the role and perspectives of these regional actors, which can be associations, intergovernmental organizations, or even United Nations Agencies, in facing various types of conflicts and crisis.

ZuMUN 2023: The Zurich Conference

“The Circle of Political Extremism”

The UN was created with the vision of maintaining world peace and security. However, with the pronounced rise of anti-system and extremist parties, the subsistence of international peace is called into question. Extremist thinking can be nostalgic of a radicalized past which idealizes authoritarianism. Looking at the present state of the world, we can draw a distressing parallel with the interwar period. What resolutions can we therefore create to prevent such misfortune from happening again?
