The prestigious Notre Dame International Understanding and Relations Club (NDIURC) is just as excited as you are to announce that it will be hosting the NDCMUN 2.0 soon.

The conference is promised to be held 11-13 January, 2018 at our very own premises similar to the previous session. The previous MUN had a total of almost 350 delegates divided into 6 committees under a total of 12 of the most decorated EB members in the circuit. Delegates have affiliated themselves to the art of MUNs participating in upsurging heated debates and battling through diplomatic tensions for the sake of resolution and revolution.

The NDIURC had arranged an IntraMUN in August this year basically for the passionate freshmen and seniors of Notre Dame College. The event not only served as a learning ground for newbies but also a teaching field for veterans.

So, with utmost delight and gratitude, NDC will be hosting the next session this winter. So fellow delegates, stay tuned in anticipation for the battlecry of diplomacy!

Benefits

MUNs have more practical advantages than any other form of public speaking exercise, simply because it involves so many people at once.
1. It teaches you research methodology: When I started MUNning the first and possibly the best advice I got was “Do your research well”. The sheer washout I pulled off in committee worked wonders in reinforcing the ideology that no matter what you do, have the prior knowledge pat down beforehand. Also reading through 200 page documents would seem daunting to a beginner and MUNning taught me how to skim through and identify relevant information, skills I use in my academic life all the time.
2. It teaches you teamwork: MUNs are a great way to learn how to work as a team and use the collective wisdom to your advantage. The group’s collective intelligence is always greater than the sum of it’s individual parts, and MUNs are a great demonstration of this. What you may lack in oratory skills someone else could cover and what they make lack in research you could cover up, so that in the end everyone wins.
3. It’s a good of understanding policymaking: Most people take politics and lawmaking for granted. Being immersed into the process through MUNs gives you an idea of what it really is like at the top and the psyche of our lawmakers. MUNs give a whole new perspective on analysing the world around us, the laws behind it and its socioeconomic implications.

4. Gratification: This is not really a benefit but it’s a huge morale boost. This might take some time so keep MUNning but once in a while you will get the opportunity to absolutely destroy someone in committee in the most brutal way allowable in parliamentary language. The *mic drop* feeling you get after that is what makes MUNning worth it.
* Socialising
* Soft Skills
* Discipline
* Knowledge
* Leadership
