Model United Nations and Debating Club

The Model United Nations and Debating Club at OIST promotes the understanding of the role of the United Nations as well as the development of the debating skills of its members. The Model United Nations and Debating Club holds regular debates at OIST that are open to everyone interested to understand the role of the United Nations and to increase their debating skills. Debates either follow the rules and procedures of the United Nations or formal debating rules. Both sets of rules are easy to understand and apply. Overviews that summarise the rules are available for everyone participating in debates. Debates are therefore accessible for everyone. Thus, if you want to understand the role of the United Nations and increase your debating skills, join our bi-weekly meetings!

Biweekly meetings of the Model United Nations and Debating Club will resume at September 14, 2015. We will meet every second Monday between 12:00 pm and 13:00 pm in room D014. Discussions are structured by a set of easily applicable rules that are based on the Rules and Procedures of the United Nations. If you want to join debates and would like to receive more information on topics prior to debates, please contact the club president by email (bianca.sieveritz@oist.jp). Everyone can join the debates, increase their own debating skills and enrich the debating experience for other members!
