About the Model UN

Moscow International Historical Model of the United Nations RSUH is a warm tradition of the the Faculty of International Relations and Foreign Area Studies that will open its doors on the second week of April this year for the 14th time for those who are not indifferent to the events happening in the world; for those who believe that humanity is able to resolve conflicts with dignity; for those who are ready to fight for the international peace and security tomorrow.

Model UN is an international student movement with the goal to recreate the work of the main UN bodies and special agencies within universities and schools as precisely as possible. Model UN is a symbiosis of a scientific conference and a role-playing game in the official languages of the United Nations. The participants of Model try on the role of the representatives of the UN member states and for the week defend the interests of the chosen state and all mankind in their committees. Those who participate as journalists cover the work of the committees in the daily special edition of the Model UN RSUH - “Vestnik”.

Moscow International Historical Model of the United Nations RSUH is a unique representative of the “model” movement in Russia. It’s participants think on the solution not only of current global problems, but also on the problems of the past. They investigate historic events and processes and are empowered to provide an alternative solution to the problem raised by our predecessors.

In 2021 you will have an opportunity to take part in recreating the work of 9 committees in 5 official languages of the UN: Russian, English, Spanish, French and Chinese. During the hot dispute the participants of every committee should find a compromise and adopt a resolution - document in which the vision of committee on the best solution of the issue raised on the agenda will be reflected.

Secretary General

Dear colleagues and friends! I am very happy to welcome you on the behalf of the Secretary General of the XIV Moscow International Historical Model of the United Nations.

This year you will have a unique opportunity to take part in the modeling of work of 9 committees in 5 official languages of the UN and to review the decisions of our predecessors on the 9 issues. You will investigate historic problems, both currently central and already resolved by the efforts of the international community, and then you will decide on the solution of those problems. In the process of work you will apply practically your knowledge in the area of history and politics, develop your professional skills and get to know purposeful people. Model of the UN is an important lesson where we can learn to fight for justice, for international peace and security, for our own interest and for interests of the states.

It’s a great honor for me to participate in the organisation of such interesting, useful and enjoyable event in my university. I hope that our Model of the UN will provide you with a huge sense of accomplishment, with some new friends and invaluable experience and that Models will become an important part of your student lives.

Deputy Secretary General

Dear colleagues, I greet you on behalf of the Deputy Secretary General of the XIV Moscow International Historical Model of the United Nations RSUH.

I am very pleased to be a part of the event, which is attended by students from different universities of Moscow and other Russian cities, foreigners, schoolchildren and just interested persons. The Model UN is a great opportunity to practice public speaking and discussion skills, gain new knowledge and spend some time with pleasure. As you already know, the Historical Model UN of the RSUH is unique because we work with the agendas that have been raised at the meetings of the United Nations in the past. This distinctive feature is what makes the Model more difficult, because it’s participants have to look at the problems not from the modern point of view, but that also makes the Model more attractive and intriguing. Your goal is not to copy the history but to write your own, not being guided by "knowledge of the future". Be creative while considering the agenda, imagine yourself in the shoes of the delegations that discussed it in the past. Perhaps, the result will be the same, perhaps not. It’s for you to decide!

Head of Media Department

Dear delegates and members of the team of the Model UN! I am very pleased to welcome you on the behalf of the head of the media department! Welcome to the XIV Moscow International Historical Model UN RSUH 2021!

As editor-in-chief, I want to pay a special attention to those people without whom our beloved model of the UN would not be so attractive and recognizable. I'm talking about guys from the media department.

You all have a difficult, but very important and interesting job ahead of you! For five days, we will dive into the world of journalism: write articles on current international topics, interview delegations from different countries, take photos to show the Model from the inside, edit texts and, of course, publish the magazine of the Model UN RSUH — and promote it and the Model itself to the masses! We are going to have a busy job, you will definitely like it! I am sure that you will be responsible and reliable, and this experience will help you in the future.

See you on the Model, friends!

Chief Designer

Dear friends and colleagues!
I am very happy to welcome you on behalf of the Chief Designer of the XIV Moscow International Historical Model of The United Nations RSUH!

It is a great honor for me to take part in the design development for this Model. This work is my first experience in the model movement, and therefore the most important and exciting. In the process of development of design, I learned a lot of new skills and to opened up new boundaries of my capabilities.

I hope that my further work in the Model will provide me with the new experience and knowledge, as well as with many acquaintances. It seems to me that when you become a part of something so global, you proceed, both professionally and spiritually. This is why I am sure that participation in such events is necessary for every student. It is the first, but important step into adulthood, an opportunity to make new friends, try something new and unknown.
