NMUN in New York

From March 30th to April 4th, 2014, we participated in the National Model United Nations Conference in New York – to which we had looked forward to for a whole semester. The conference proved to be an amazing experience for all of us and was a great success.

The NMUN Tübingen Delegation 2014 received an Honorable Mention Award for our work during the conference . Furthermore, three delegations (GA 4th, UNFPA, and OPCW) were awarded with an Outstanding Position Paper Award within their respective committees.

Back to Business….

Returning from the christmas break, the Tübingen NMUN Delegation is looking forward to another step towards the great simulation in New York: Over the last few weeks every committee faces the challenge of writing the first draft of their positions papers. These documents contain the Montenegrin position on current international issues, treaties and resolutions. Now, we are waiting for the feedback provided by our head delegates in order to improve the second draft, which is due in 2 weeks time.

Another big challenge is laying ahead of us: HCMUN 2014, the simulation held in Hohenheim Castle with the delegations from Hohenheim, Heidelberg and Tübingen. Our university is going to represent the following countries in the upcoming simulation: Bangladesh, Canada, Finland, Georgia, Iceland, Iran, Ireland, Israel, Montenegro, New Zealand, Rwanda, Peru, Sweden, Tanzania, Togo, Venezuela.

The topics to be discussed at HCMUN are:

1. Measures to Prevent Terrorists from Acquiring Weapons of Mass Destruction

2. Agriculture Development and Food Security

3. Intensification of Efforts to Eliminate All Forms of Violence against Women

Review of the Clubhaus Party

The motto of this year’s Clubhaus Party, „Montenegro – 7 Jahre Party auf dem Balkan!“, revealed to be very appropriate! Together with the Fachschaft Politik, the NMUN-delegation organized a fun evening with lots of music which was widely embraced. Besides drinks and pretzels, original French-made crêpes had been very popular and have been one of the highlights. Particular attention was also attracted by the Tombola: the first prize of a one-month French course in the south of France encouraged many guests to try their luck and turned the tombola into a huge success. Having had a lot of fun and collected additional revenues, the NMUN-delegation has taken another step towards New York!

Our Committees

Last week the various delegates were appointed for each committee. You are welcome to have a look at the nine committees and organisations, the Montenegrin representatives, as well as the topics covered!


Tonight at 9 p.m., the Clubhaus Party, organized by the Fachschaft Politik and the NMUN Delegation Tübingen 2014, will take place. Not only will there be a live band – the Fatones – but also various DJs. Also, we are hosting a tombola with great prizes (first prize is a french course in Aix en Provence!).

The NMUN Delegation Tübingen 2014 invites everyone to come and join!

First Simulation

After a weekend of intense working, numerous speeches, endless negotiations and a lot of fun, the Tübingen Delegation 2014 successfully completed its first test-simulation.

Starting on Saturday, November 23rd 2013, seventeen delegations gathered in the halls of the Political Science Institute of Tübingen to discuss the topics currently concerning international politics. The delegates were proud to represent Bangladesh, Belarus, Canada, France, India, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Japan, Kazakhstan, Montenegro, New Zealand, Norway, Russia, South Africa, Turkey, and the United States.

The following topics were on our agenda:

1. Measures to Prevent Terrorists from Acquiring Weapons of Mass Destruction

2. The Impact of Climate Change on Sustainable Development

3. Intensification of Efforts to Eliminate all Forms of Violence against Women

The majority of the present states considered the topic “Measures to Prevent Terrorists from Acquiring Weapons of Mass Destruction” calling for the immediate attention of the committee and was therefore prioritized to be the first topic to be discussed. Due to our limited time of simulating, the committee was unfortunately only able to engage in the first topic.

During the two-day-simulation we presented the various countries‘ positions on this issue and also listened to speeches of the fellow delegates. In between the speeches, the delgates gathered in working groups to work on first resolution drafts. All in all, the committee was finally able to agree upon a resolution, making great efforts in limiting the unlawful distribution of nuclear, biological and chemical weapons. Thus, the result of the simulated conference was very satisfying.

After this experience, we all seem to be one step closer to the great simulation in New York at the end of March 2014. Although a lot of work is still lying ahead of us, we are looking forward to the next tasks and simulations, coming up in the following months.

We would like to thank our head delegates Maike and Sophie as well as our project coordinator Bettina Ahrens for the great organization, the delicious food, beverages and the competent guidance.


Getting Started

The 17 students for the delegation have been chosen – we will represent Montenegro at the National Model United Nations Conference from March 30th to April 3rd in New York! The delegation is already busy preparing for the first simulation and starting their fundraising campaign. We are excited to be part of the NMUN experience and looking forward to the next months!
