A Model United Nations is a conference during which the participants, called delegates, take the roles of representatives of different countries / parties, and debate in an organized environment on certain issues regarding current international politics. Each delegate needs to represent and support the interests of the chosen or assigned country or political party and to adopt the politics representative to that entity.
The aim of such a simulation is creating the favorable environment for the participants to assimilate knowledge and skills regarding UN procedures and decisional process. The participants develop their oratorical skills, rhetoric and debate skills, while having the opportunity to take the role of a diplomat.
Last but not least, the delegates are given the optimum environment to socialize with each other, from different cultural and academic backgrounds, thus providing an authentic intercultural dialogue.
