The United Nations Organization (UNO) is an international organization committed to maintaining international peace and security, developing friendly relations among nations and promoting social progress, better living standards and human rights. To achieve multilateral resolutions, official delegates negotiate in a highly complex, multilateral system.
This seminar will give you an insight into UNO. Over the course of two semesters, participants receive:
Coaching by experienced members of the student association MUN Bern
Training in international negotiations by Professor Addor and Mrs. Rüegsegger
Workshops including rhetoric and international politics
The coaching and workshops prepare students for the successful participation in a MUN Conference.
