Diplomacy in the DC Corridor

More than 900 university students from around the world came to the U.S. capital to participate in discussions of issues at the forefront of international relations. NMUN•DC 2017 offered nine simulated UN committees, utilizing procedural rules developed with UNITAR. The conference featured smaller committee sizes than our New York conference, a crisis simulation in the Security Council, and briefings by distinguished speakers from the Washington, DC diplomatic community. Delegations arranged briefings at nearby embassies and took advantage of the D.C. area by visiting national museums and monuments.
