Global Indian International School (GIIS) Tokyo is delighted to announce that it will be hosting the 4th chapter of the Model United Nations (MUN). This event epitomizes our institution's unwavering dedication to developing global leaders prepared to tackle the intricate challenges of tomorrow. Scheduled to take place from 27-29 June 2024 at Tower Hall Funabori, Tokyo, this esteemed event will serve as a crucial platform for diplomacy and international relations among young students.

This distinguished event will convene 265 delegates from eight countries: Japan, India, Malaysia, Georgia, Cameroon, Cambodia, Singapore, and South Korea, featuring representatives from 25 nationalities, thereby highlighting the global scope of the conference. Twenty-two schools worldwide, including notable institutions such as OWIS Whitefield, Bangalore, India; Witty International School, Udaipur, India; GIIS Noida, India; GIIS Ahmedabad, India; GIIS SMART Campus, Singapore; and Harrods International Cambodia, will participate, enriching the event with diverse perspectives.

Hosting this prestigious event aligns with GIIS Tokyo's mission to foster a learning environment that promotes global citizenship. By organizing the MUN, GIIS Tokyo reaffirms its commitment to offering educational experiences that prepare students to become the leaders of the future. This event exemplifies the school’s dedication to maintaining high academic standards and its role in shaping students who are ready to make positive contributions to the world.

This year, an overwhelming participation from the Global Schools Group adds to the event's diversity. This blend allows GIIS students to network with peers from around the world, establishing connections that could prove valuable in their future careers.

Model United Nations (Model UN or MUN) is a simulation of the United Nations that aims to educate participants about current events, topics in international relations, diplomacy, and the United Nations agenda. The participants role-play as diplomats representing a nation in a simulated session of the United Nations, such as the Security Council or the General Assembly. Participating in the GIIS MUN offers an unparalleled educational experience. It transcends academic learning, providing an immersive environment that hones essential skills such as public speaking, negotiation, and comprehensive problem-solving. By assuming the roles of diplomats, students engage with current global issues, participate in rigorous debates, and devise solutions for real-world problems, thus gaining an in-depth understanding of the operations of global institutions.

This year, the MUN will address significant topics across various committees, including:

  • United Nations Development Programme (UNDP): Preventing Resource Scarcity in Conflict Zones
  • United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR): Developing Strategies for the Protection of Climate Refugees
  • United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF): Establishing Legal Frameworks to Prevent Crime, Substance Abuse, and Child Labour for Children in Poverty
  • United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UNHSP): Creating a Blueprint for Safe and Sustainable Cities
  • United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC): Accountability for and Prevention of Inhumane Treatment in Detentions
  • Security Council (UNSC): Improving the Administration of Justice by Military Tribunals
  • United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC): Countering Transnational Organised Crimes and Illicit Drugs
  • UN Convention on Animal Health and Protection (UNCAHP): Protection of Endangered Animals and Wildlife
  • Disarmament and International Security Committee (DISEC): Impact of Private Military Security Companies on Global Security
  • Special Political and Decolonisation Committee (General Assembly): Protection of Cultural Property in Times of Armed Conflict and Colonisation

We are looking forward to the transformative experience the upcoming MUN will provide. It promises to be not just a forum for debate but a training ground for future diplomats, legislators, and leaders. GIIS Tokyo is honoured to host this significant event, continuing our tradition of empowering young individuals to excel in a globalized world and make substantial impacts on an international scale.

Being part of the Global Schools Group (GSG) offers significant advantages to our students, presenting them with unique opportunities to interact with a diverse cohort from various international backgrounds. This global exposure is vital in developing well-rounded individuals adept at understanding and addressing global issues. GIIS Tokyo's commitment to nurturing global leaders is evident in our continuous efforts to provide platforms like the MUN, where students can develop critical skills and establish international connections that will benefit them throughout their lives.

We eagerly await the arrival of all participants and look forward to the brilliant discussions that will undoubtedly characterize this chapter of the Model United Nations at GIIS Tokyo.
