“You are here to step into the shoes of UN ambassadors — to draft resolutions, to plot strategy, to negotiate with your allies as well as your adversaries. Your goal may be to resolve a conflict, to cope with a natural disaster or to bring nations together on an issue like climate change. You may be playing a role, but you are also preparing for life. You are acting as global citizens.”
–Former Secretary-General of the United Nations, Ban Ki-moon
Jakarta International MUN Testimony
Why Jakarta International MUN ?
Established in 2011 by the Indonesian Student Association for International Studies (ISAFIS),
Jakarta International Model United Nations (JMUN) is one of the first Model United Nations (MUN) conferences in Indonesia and continues to be the most prestigious. JMUN offers an opportunity for the youth to experience international negotiation, substantive discussions, as well as Jakarta’s exquisite cultures.
The previous Jakarta International MUNs have successfully brought changes for youth in spreading the ideas and values of diplomacy as well as enriching knowledge. This is because JMUN always attracted around 300 delegates from across the world: Indonesia, India, Singapura, Philippines, Afghanistan, USA, UK, New Zealand, Australia, Malaysia, Laos, Thailand, and Ghana. This has made JMUN as an international phenomenon.
