The Bremen International Model United Nations (BRIMUN) offers an exciting yearly conference, greeting highly qualified delegates from a wide assortment of universities around the globe. The main aim of the conference is to simulate the debates and discussions that take place in the chambers of different international organizations and create fictional, yet highly realistic scenarios, wherein the participants play the role of the diplomats of modern times. During the conference, BRIMUN delegates find themselves immersed in the complexities posed by the most pressing world issues ranging from Human Rights violations, nuclear disarmament, military interstate disputes, food and development aid, and even war. Delegates at BRIMUN then embark on a journey of negotiation, diplomacy and cooperation and put into practice vital skills that serve towards their integral education.
In addition, one of the goals of the conference is to allow our delegates to really grasp what being a diplomat involves and truly take upon the leadership of what they are representing. For this reason, BRIMUN spends a great deal of time developing our very distinctive component: the crisis. Throughout the conference, participants are exposed fictional events developed by a very skillful team of students who are responsible for creating a complex plot and emergency situations to which participants have to react and adjust throughout all days of the conference. This is not only exciting for those involved, but also puts into extreme their negotiating and rapid-thinking abilities.
Outside committee discussions, BRIMUN offers to its participants and special guests, the chance to engage in thought-provoking lectures and discussion forums with our key-note speakers and personalities involved in the field. This has been an excellent opportunity to interact with those currently involved in the world of international relations and get first-hand insights of their experiences.
At the same time, BRIMUN traditionally features an extensive social program which allows its participants to enjoy fantastic events, relaxing chill outs, and several workshops. BRIMUN therefore extends beyond the committee experience and does its utmost to make of the conference an enjoyable and worthwhile experience.
BRIMUN has always done its best to impress its delegates with a high degree of organizational professionalism and has worked towards maintaining this standard to give everyone the chance to fully dive into this experience. The organizing team of BRIMUN is looking forward to welcoming our future delegates, speakers and contributors in the campus of Jacobs University from the 5th to the 9th of April 2009.
