About the 4th International High School MUN
Model United Nations (MUNYP) is proud to announce that we are hosting our 4th International High school MUN which is being hosted by the University of New York in Prague, Czech Republic, which will be held on the 24th to 26th of January, 2020.
MUNYP has emerged as an initiative for creating a platform for young students interested in international relations to discuss global current affairs. Since 2011, our society has grown considerably in size, with students showing dedication, passion and enthusiasm in meetings and their increasing interest in participating in domestic or international model UN conferences. In order to make this conference a truly unforgettable experience, your delegation’s presence at our conference is of great importance to us.
During the three-day conference you will have an opportunity to solve international political issues, to actively promote intercultural understanding and to familiarize themselves with the bodies and the inner workings of the United Nations.
We are as well happy to announce that we have improved the conference with better food, newer locations and a different event! 2020 is time for change and we are embracing it!

Topic & Committees:
Major challenges confronting the world community today are challenges that nation-states acting alone or even in concert cannot solve in a timely, effective, democratic, and legitimate way. (This includes issues such as climate change but also others that have been virulent ever since but remain unsolved so far, in particular global disarmament and security. Global action and global regulation is necessary in many fields but hard to come by in the framework of existing international law and intergovernmental arrangements. Improving the quality of international institutional capacity is vital to enhance the provision of global public goods.) A new level of trust and collaboration is needed.
Topic: Global governance and its international effect
1. United Nations Human Rights Council - Addressing the Crisis in Yemen
2. United Nations Security Council - Rising US-Iran Tensions
3. United Nations Environment Assembly - Is Ecotax a Viable Solution to the Environmental Situation?
4. United Nations Parliamentary Assembly - Outer Space Security - Global Regulation of the Weaponisation of Space
