Welcome to the inaugural session of DXBMUN…

On behalf of The Indian High School and the Secretariat, it is my absolute pleasure to invite you to The Dubai Model United Nations Conference 2017. DXBMUN 2017 will take place from April 26 – 29 in the City of Gold – Dubai and it is with great honor and gratitude that I look forward to serving as your Secretary General.

Participation in MUN conferences has given me the conviction that change is possible. These conferences have helped me gain insight into global issues and have broadened my understanding of international relations. For me, it is a medium through which proactive citizens can voice their opinions against myriad issues faced by humanity. MUN has inspired in me the courage to believe that I could be a beacon of hope amidst the darkness that lurks in this world.

We, at DXBMUN 2017, are committed to offering a platform to all our delegates to learn from research and debate derived not only from this simulation but also from a wide range of world views, life experiences and perspectives. This is a great opportunity to understand how the UN works and how the structural framework of this organization helps maintain world peace. Let this experience not be an opportunity to just gain knowledge, but an opportunity to apply that knowledge from a legal and practical perspective.

Cooperation & Statecraft – The Stem of a Peaceful Society is the theme for DXBMUN this year. We aim to convene delegates from diverse societies to stand united against the challenges faced by the international community. We at IHS believe diplomacy is the key to create a much more integrated society. The eight committees at DXBMUN have been selected with great precision and meticulous planning. Our top priority is to offer a personalized, thought provoking and an energetic conference to each and every delegate.

As Secretary General, I personally invite students who as delegates, can bring a real change in the world, I invite you to explore how this can be achieved and on what basis, under what framework and in what capacity. I look forward to meeting all our bold and fearless delegates during the three days of intense debate and discussions where new alliances will be formed, new policies will be implemented, the guilty will be prosecuted and justice will be served.

On behalf of the organizing committee of DXBMUN 2017, I assure you we are doing our best to ensure you leave The Indian High School, Dubai with nothing but warm memories, experiences and friendship that you will cherish for a lifetime.

Secretary General
