Chair Applications KULMUN 2018
Chair applications have ended as of September 10, 23:59
A MUN Conference is bound to be unsuccessful without the contribution of its chairs. KULMUN is no exception to this rule. Therefore we are once again looking for any persons interested in chairing at the longest running international MUN Conference in Belgium. We heartily encourage both experienced and rookie chairs to send in their applications.
The 2018 edition of KULMUN will have the following theme: “Refocus: Changing the scene of international politics“. The main aim of this topic is to confront chairs and delegates alike with situations that are not commonly represented in current curricula and/or media and by extension the MUN world. In order to achieve this goal KULMUN 2018 will host underexposed committees or cast a new light on well-known committees by letting them discuss equally ill-lighted topics.
More information regarding the theme of KULMUN 2018 can be found here: http://kulmun.be/kulmun-2018-conference/
As a result the following 6 committees will be simulated at KULMUN: The UN Security Council, the Third Committee of the General Assembly (Social, Cultural and Humanitarian), the Sixth Committee (Legal) of the General Assembly, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), the Organization for Economic Co-Operation and Development (OECD) and a historical simulation of the UN Special Committee on Decolonization. For everyone of these committees, the KULMUN team is searching for 2 Chairs to take charge of the upcoming debates.
Furthermore we are also looking for 1 Director to take charge of the KULMUN Newswire during the conference.
