Posted: 05-09-2012 10:54

Dear friends of all over the world,

we are very pleased and proud to announce that the registration for the Vienna
International Model United Nations (VIMUN) 2012, which will take place
from 5 to 9 August at the United Nations Office at Vienna, has
already started.

VIMUN is the biggest and most prestigious event organized by the
United Nations Youth and Student Association of Austria - Academic
Forum for Foreign Affairs (UNYSA-AUSTRIA-AFA) and always attracts
around 250 people from approximately 40 different nations.

It is the only UN simulation of this kind in Austria and the only UN
simulation worldwide where the entire conference is held in the
original conference rooms of the UN.

Besides these hard facts, VIMUN is an unique opportunity to meet
different people from all over the world and to engage with them in
interesting discussions.

Next to extensive negotiations over the period of four days, different
social programs are offered every day.

At this year's conference we will simulate following committees:

two Security Council (SC), including one crisis committee
the Human Rights Council (HRC),
the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC),
the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO),
the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA),
and the World Health Organization (WHO).

The different topics cover a wide range of prevailing and pressing
issues. Hence, I am convinced that everyone can find something of his
or her interest.

However, please sign up as soon as possible to ensure your favourite position.
