What is BrisMUN?

The Brisbane Model United Nations Conference (BrisMUN) will be held from Thursday the 5th to Sunday the 8th of April, 2018.

BrisMUN is Queensland’s largest diplomacy simulation, and attracts 200 university students from around Australia each year. Participants develop an immense range of practical skills (from negotiation and public speaking, to legal research and writing), and more importantly, make lasting friendships with other  future leaders.

Who are our Secretariat?

Your Co-Secretaries General of BrisMUN ’18 are Jessica Tselepy, Minh Pham, and Jack Nagy.

With over 15 years of Model UN experience between us, we’ve almost done it all – from building mini-MUNs at UQ, to winning awards in the 150+ person committees of Harvard WorldMUN, to looking out for our interstate delegates as Head Delegates or Welfare Officers.  We know what it takes to make sure you have a wonderful conference experience, and we can’t wait to bring that to you at BrisMUN 18!

Other Secretariat applications are now closed.

Where is it hosted?

In 2018, we are bringing BrisMUN back to the beautiful Gardens Point campus of the Queensland University of Technology (QUT).

The aptly named campus sits in the heart of Brisbane, snug between the Botanic Gardens and the Brisbane River. A short walk south across the Goodwill Bridge will take you to scenic Southbank, while a short walk north will take you to the Brisbane CBD for food or entertainment.

For sporting fans, the Commonwealth Games will also be on during BrisMUN, and the Gold Coast is only a train away!

What is Model UN?

Model United Nations (MUN) events are diplomacy situations, where each participant typically roleplays a delegate from a chosen country.

These delegates meet in a committee – usually one of the United Nations bodies, such as the Security Council or General Assembly – to debate pressing international issues (such as climate change, or economic sanctions). By the end of the conference, most delegates (except in specialised committees, like Crisis or Press) will write a ‘Resolution’ – a semi-legal document that would go on to shape international law and politics. Model UN is an incredible, multi-faceted negotiation challenge for students of any discipline – so get involved with BrisMUN!
