Texas A&M-Kingsville to host Model United Nations April 13-14

Posted on

            KINGSVILLE (April 4, 2019) — The Second Annual Javelina Model United Nations will be held at Texas A&M University-Kingsville from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, April 13-14, on the second floor of the Javelina Dining Hall.


            Forty students are expected to join this session. Model United Nations is a simulation of decision-making processes of councils and committees at the United Nations. It is a well-established, hands-on program adopted by many universities across the world that allows students to learn about world governance and global issues.


            Student participants also learn how to act professionally, negotiate diplomatically and engage in interdisciplinary research.


            The Javelina Model UN offers two different councils in which the students can participate. They may choose the United Nations Security Council or the G20.


            The Security Council is one of the most important parts of the UN and is responsible for maintaining international peace and security, accepting new members into the United Nations and approving changes made to the United Nations Charter. The Security Council will debate nuclear proliferation and international displacement of people with emphasis on the situations of Venezuela, Central America and Europe.


            G20 is a meeting of 20 countries in the world which account of 85 percent of global economic activity, 75 percent of international trade and two thirds of the world’s population. It is grown out of G7, the group of the seven most powerful economies in the world. G20 is not a part of the United Nations, but it a partner of the UN. The G20 group will debate international trade and energy transitions and global environment for sustainable growth.
