Welcome to the Japan English Model United Nations(JEMUN) conference website!
The JEMUN Organizing Committee is dedicated to advancing the understanding of the United Nations and contemporary international issues in English. JEMUN’s mission is to positively affect the lives of the participants and prepare them to be better global citizens through quality educational experiences in English that emphasize collaboration and cooperative resolution of conflict. The JEMUN Organizing Committee envisions a world comprised of civically engaged people who strive for peaceful, multi-lateral conflict resolution and equitable, sustainable human development.
At each JEMUN conference, students from around the world experience cooperative, hands-on learning allowing them to confront a topic in English from the perspective of their assigned country or as a JEMUN Journalist. Through these experiences, during preparation and in committee sessions, participants will develop an appreciation of differing viewpoints, the frustration of negotiation, the rewards of cooperation, and a broader view of the human side of international relations and diplomacy.
The yearly JEMUN conference agenda is chosen after careful and extensive deliberation and discussion by the Organizing Committee and deals with an issue of great importance to the world that needs to be addressed with comprehensive and innovative solutions; that serve as a basis for resolutions in the future.
JEMUN offers a variety of role options in five unique meeting rooms. Four of the five meeting rooms are for university-aged students and one meeting room is for high school students.
JEMUN participants consist of Japanese students, international students studying in Japan, and foreign students from abroad. Apply for one of the many exciting roles at JEMUN and join us at Kindai University from Friday, June 23rd to Sunday June 25th for the 2017 JEMUN conference.
