The Secretary General, Georgia Davies, closed the 33rd Royal Russell MUN conference on Tuesday 21st October, after another very successful four days. Delegates had debated in 8 GA committees and the Security Council before a day of debate in the General Assembly. The ICJ successfully reached a judgement on Bolivia versus Chile. After the debates students had a chance to attend the parties and enjoy the X-Factor competition live screened on Chapel Quad. Two schools attending their first RRSiMUN were among the winners of the Distinguished Delegation awards to the conference. The winning delegations were:
Russian Fed China
The Year 6, 7 & 8 students who have been attending MiniMUN this term had the first chance to debate in the Great Hall set up as the General Assembly for our annual MUN conference.
This year students have debated subjects such as Endangered Species, Independence, Girls Sport and, on Wednesday, whether countries should support America in their war on Islamic State..
We are pleased to announce the huge success of the first model ICJ at our conference last year. Robert S Stern very kindly agreed to run this for us and footage of him announcing the case heard at this conference can be found in MUN TV. Robert S Stern recently retired from teaching at TASIS – The American School in England – and has been running a very successful model ICJ at THIMUN for a number of years. Details of the model ICJ can be found under ‘General Information’ and an application form will be included with the invitations for RRS IMUN 2015 to be sent out in March.
This year’s successful applicants can be found under ‘2014 Conference’ above.
