The Tel Aviv University Model UN Society, founded in 2012, is a student-led leadership programme that puts the study of diplomacy and negotiation at the forefront of its work.
The Society holds weekly practice sessions that include everything from classes and workshops to simulations and guest speakers.
We take pride in offering our members high-quality lessons which will guide them through the world of Model United Nations and prepare them for national and international Model UN conferences as well as life beyond the programme.
At TAUMUN we focus not only on national conferences, but go above and beyond to send our students to compete in the international circuit. Just last year, we sent the largest ever Israeli delegation to EuroMUN in Maastricht, Netherlands for the 5th year in a row. We also sent delegations to MarmaraMUN in Istanbul, Turkey as well as a delegation to SGMUN in St. Gallen, Switzerland.
Our delegations included Chairs, and our delegates returned home with both awards and incredible experiences.
During the conferences, our students will have to create, convince and lead a coalition of people they probably have never met before. They will have to write and present speeches to a full committee, learn to think on the spot, all of which are wanted skills in a leader.
All this will culminate in our weekly meetings, where our students will have the opportunity to take responsibility over other students, become project managers or board members.
At TAUMUN we hold weekly practice sessions that include everything from classes and workshops to simulations and guest speakers. Sessions take place Sunday evenings from 18:00-21:00. We offer our students high quality lessons which will guide them through the world of Model United Nations, preparing them for national and international conferences as well as life beyond the program.
At TAUMUN, we embrace the differences amongst us and discuss issues relating to all aspects in life. We take pride in our diverse Society that includes students from different nationalities, ethnicities and religions.
We believe in broadening the students' horizons, as we learn about the different UN committees and their influence on security, health, international law, technology, space, economics and more.
Our students come from all over campus, majoring in various academic fields - social sciences, liberal arts, law, engineering, exact sciences and even Med School.
