SHAMUN provides a great opportunity for all delegates. The small forum sizes give less experienced delegates a chance to build their confidence, while learning the ins and outs of debate following the THIMUN rules of procedure.
More experienced delegates, on the other hand, can take advantage of the greater opportunities to speak in order to further improve their skills, or apply for student officer positions.
This year the forums at SHAMUN XVII will include the General Assembly, Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), Security Council, Human Rights Council, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) Committee, and the International Court of Justice (ICJ). The conference itself will start at 9:00 am and end at 4:30 pm on Friday and Saturday. Lunch and snacks will be provided on both days.
