Diplomacy in the D.C. Corridor

Nearly 600 university students from around the world participated in our first virtual conference. Due to COVID-19, discussions related to issues at the forefront of international relations took place online. NMUN•DC 2020 offered eight 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.
