NTU Model United Nations (NTU MUN) is one of the most prestigious international event organized by the NTU Debating Society, one of NTU’s premier clubs. Since 2006, students from around the Asian region have come to the Nanyang Executive Center to spend a weekend discussing important geo-political and social issues.
In the past, NTU MUN has been graced by guests such as His Excellency Mr Paul Madden, British High Commissioner to Singapore; Her Excellency Ms Amanda Brooks, Acting British High Commissioner; Ambassador Barry Desker, Dean S Rajaratnam School of International Studies; Prof Rohan Gunaratna, an International Terrorism Expert; Ms Yeo Law Hwee, Director of the European Union Centre in Singapore; and Mr Geoffrey Yu, Advisor at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Government of Singapore.
Our aim is to foster a constructive forum for open dialogue on global issues and it is designed to acquaint its participants with the nations of the world community, their policies, and the problems that arise as these nations attempt to coexist. The nature of NTU MUN makes it very relevant to the student communities, members of which are the potential leaders of tomorrow and who shall be influenced by issues around them and in the world at large.

Dear Delegates of NTUMUN 2016,
Welcome to the 10th session of Nanyang Technological University Model United Nations! We are delighted to welcome you to the bustling cosmopolitan of Singapore to simulate the biggest and most important international body. Since its conception in 2006, NTUMUN has grown tremendously and has been innovating to bring to you the best MUN experience in this part of the world. This time around we will be organising the NTU Model United Nations from 19th to 21st February at our very own beautiful NTU campus.
This year, we have ten exciting committees as well as various engaging press networks. The vast array of topics will further ensure a uniquely engaging and thought-provoking experience for each and every delegate. The NTUMUN organizing committee will do everything in its power to maintain the conference's impressive reputation by continuing to offer the most competitive and academically stimulating conference on the circuit to its delegates. Additionally, we will have an out of the world socials experience as we always do!
As UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon once said "You are already leaders. Your ideas, your actions and your decisions make a difference. More than any other generation, you have a voice. Social networking is changing how we interact - and it can change our world. You are in touch with peers from around the world. You understand the power of instant communication. I appeal to you to use that power for the common good, the power of communication and the power of networking." I hope you will bear these words in mind as you approach NTUMUN 2016 with an open mind and determination to solve some of the world’s greatest problems.
To this end, I would like to heartily extend an invitation to join us! If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email me (firstname.lastname@example.org), or our Delegate Affairs team (email@example.com). Thank you very much for your interest in the NTU Model United Nations, and I hope to see you for an exciting three days this February!
