NYU SHANGHAI MUN

2019 CONFERENCE

 
 

About

The New York University Shanghai Model United Nations Conference, or NYUSHMUNC, offers its delegates three days of enriching debate, public speaking, and collaboration. NYUSHMUNC is hosted by NYU Shanghai, a joint venture university established between New York University and East China University. As the only United Nations recognized annual conference in China, the NYUSHMUNC experience invites students from regional high schools, joint-venture institutions, and universities, creating a diverse environment.

2019 Conference

Located in the financial heart of China, NYUSHMUNC embodies much of Shanghai’s global culture. This combined with our theme of intergenerational cooperation creates a truly unique Model UN experience. Delegates will have the opportunity to not only explore the intellectual community at NYU Shanghai, but also the multicultural attractions of Shanghai. The delegation fee, which includes entry into the conference and luncheons for the days of debate, will be 600 RMB per delegate.
