It is with great pleasure that we welcome you to the website of the Haarlem Model United Nations. HMUN is an internationally recognised secondary school conference organised by students of the Stedelijk Gymnasium, located right in the heart of the historical city of Haarlem, the Netherlands.
The HMUN conference will be taking place from the 5th until the 7th of April. All applications (School / Student Officer / Press Team / ExCom / ICJ) have been closed. We would like to express our gratitude to the overwhelming amount of people who show interest in our conference each year. As is the case every year, we have chosen a conference theme for the 22nd annual session of HMUN, which is:
Inclusive Societies: giving all people a voice and future
In line with this year’s theme, our Keynote Speaker, Marriët Schuurman, will be giving a speech during the Opening Ceremonies in the St. Bavo church.
The debate in our SPC-committees will focus on the compliance with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (SPC1) and Universal Declaration of Children’s Rights (SPC2). Furthermore, we have added a new committee in line with our theme, the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW), which will debate on the empowerment of women. On behalf of the whole Executive Staff of HMUN 2019, we are looking forward to welcoming you at our 22nd annual session of Haarlem Model United Nations in April.
