Washington, D.C. 2023 Archive

Diplomacy in the D.C. Corridor

Around 900 university students from around the world joined us in Washington, D.C. to discuss issues at the forefront of international relations. NMUN•DC 2023 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. Delegations arranged briefings at nearby embassies and took advantage of the D.C. area by visiting national museums and monuments.
