Diplomacy in the D.C. Corridor

Despite U.S. travel bans due to COVID-19 preventing most of our non-U.S. schools from attending, we drew 745 university students to our in-person DC conference to discuss issues at the forefront of international relations. Attendees were required to be vaccinated against COVID-19 and mask wearing was required as part of the dress code. NMUN•DC 2021 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 keynote speeches by distinguished speakers, who graciously answered questions from students.
