Simulating the UN processes at SJC

Students of St. Joseph’s College had an opportunity on Thursday to be part of a simulation of the United Nations and its functioning. The Model United Nation Society held a conference for students to perceive how discussions are held in United Nations, New York. The students discussed three global topics.

The three segments of MUN held debates on the UN Security Council’s agenda which was Qatar-Gulf Crisis, UN General Assembly Disarmament and International Affair’s agenda which was Militarization of the Arctic Circle and UN Commission of Status of Women’s agenda which was Uniform Civil Code with Special Emphasis on Triple Talaq.

Anurag Chakraborty, student and co-chair of UN-DISEC said “MUN is a simulation of United Nations. Participating in MUN gives confidence to speak and increases one’s general knowledge.”

During MUN debates, students represent one country each and speak for the same on certain agenda that are set. The students must research about their country’s laws and agenda prior to this debate as the exchange of information is pretty intense as the debate proceeds. Deepa. N, student of SJC, said “The topic selected for these debates are purely social issues and include political aspects,”
