About

 

MACMUN is an annual, interdisciplinary Model United Nations (MUN) conference, run by the club McMaster Model United Nations, that aims to emulate conversations about international relations and global affairs at the United Nations right here at home in Hamilton, Ontario.

 

We offer students an avenue to discuss pressing world issues and explore the different perspectives that dominate current international relations. As the world continues to move towards forming stronger ties between a great diversity of nations, MACMUN presents participants with the opportunity to critically tackle issues of global relevance through a range of representative committees focused on specialized topics. Furthermore, as delegates come from diverse academic backgrounds, all participants benefit from the ability to explore new ideas and perspectives and take part in an experience that their degrees traditionally may not offer. We offer a variety of committees ranging from beginner to intermediate and advanced in skill and experience level in order to ensure that MACMUN is a conference suitable for everyone.

 

Participation for this conference is open to McMaster students as well as students from other schools. This conference takes place off-campus, over the course of one exhilarating weekend, and features formal committee sessions that cover a breadth of topics, led by chairs and crisis analysts that have been researching, training, and preparing for these sessions for the past year. With full photography, videography, and social media coverage; special conference events like social nights; renowned guest speakers; and the chance to bring home some prestigious awards, this brief but impactful weekend commitment has been noted by many of our previous 1000+ delegates to be a highlight in their time in university.

Please stay tuned to this website and our social media for updates and more information regarding our upcoming 2020 conference, which is happening January 10-12 at the Sheraton Hamilton Hotel.

McMaster sits on the traditional territory shared between the Haudenosaunee confederacy and the Anishinabe nations, which was acknowledged in the Dish with One Spoon wampum belt. That wampum uses the symbolism of a dish to represent the territory, and one spoon to represent that the people are to share the resources of the land and only take what they need.
