FinMUN Finnish Model United Nations
FinMUN - the Society
Nordic agreement signed at FINMUN 2006.
FinMUN is the acronym for Finnish Model United Nations Society. The name of the conference is written in capitals: FINMUN.
Finnish Model United Nations Society (FinMUN) is an organization for students and others interested in international relations. We bring together students to organize and participate in Model United Nations (MUN) seminars, to debate issues on the UN and global agenda, to develop their understanding of global politics and Finnish foreign policy, and to further their diplomatic skills to enable them to be decision-makers on the world stage. The working language is English.
The Society was founded in 2004 and has so far focused on establishing a solid basis for MUN activities in Finland through building relationships with public and private sector contacts, namely the various UN representations and affiliates in Finland, as well as the media and other Nordic MUN Societies. FinMUN belongs to the United Nations Youth and Students' Association of Finland (Sykli) and to the UN Association of Finland. FinMUN is also a member organization of the Student Union of the University of Helsinki. Despite this, the organization is not merely based in Helsinki: there are active members from all over Finland.
Current activities include MUN training and simulations, seminars, and participation in foreign MUNs. In February 2006 the society held its first ever international MUN, FINMUN 2006, with 45 participants from all over the world, and FINMUN 2013 in the spring 2013 will be the eight university-level MUN conference held in Finland. All FINMUN conferences have been greatly successful.
The Members of FinMUN are from various Finnish universities. If you share our interest in the UN, foreign policy, international relations and/or global politics, join us now by following the infolist and the website.
