    Deutsche Schule Thessaloniki Model United Nations 2020

    Deutsche Schule Thessaloniki Model United Nations (DSTMUN) is a three-day-long simulation of the proceedings of the United Nations that provides junior high school and high school students (grades 8 to 12) with the opportunity to improve their English and debating skills while discussing global issues on an international level.

    This year’s conference will consist of four General Assembly Committees (Disarmament and International Security Committee, Economic and Financial Committee, Social, Humanitarian and Cultural Committee, Special Political and Decolonisation Committee) as well as five Specialized Agencies (Security Council, Council of the European Union, Special Conference, International Court of Justice, United Nations Development Programme). Depending on the committee they will take part in, delegates are required to conduct research on a multitude of topics in order to draft resolutions while getting familiar with the rules set by the United Nations.

    The theme of the 3rd DSTMUN is the 16th Sustainable Development Goal: Peace, Justice, and Strong Institutions. According to the official website of the United Nations, “the threats of international homicide, violence against children, human trafficking and sexual violence are important to address, aiming to promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development.

    They pave the way for the provision of access to justice for all and for building effective, accountable institutions at all levels. To tackle these challenges and build a more peaceful and inclusive society, there needs to be more efficient and transparent regulations put in place, as well as comprehensive, realistic government budgets.

    One of the first steps towards protecting individual rights is the creation of more independent national human rights institutions around the world.”¹ Delegates who wish to delve into matters related to the aforementioned theme are invited to take part in this year’s Special Conference committee (SPECON).
