The London International Model United Nations (LIMUN) is the largest UN Assembly Simulation in Europe. Each year, more than 1500 delegates from around the world participated in the event held in the city of London.
This program was joined by various student groups and academic staff from diverse backgrounds to channel their concern of global affairs in the real life. Through this conference, issues such as regional conflict, peace efforts, human rights, women and children rights, economy, environment, and social development were discussed. Therefore, as a result, the conference would bring opportunities for students to develop their abilities in diplomacy and compromise, as well as to provide a deeper understanding of the mechanism of the United Nations.
Delegates presented themselves to be representatives of UN member states to conduct diplomacy. In the diplomatic process, they are challenged to solve various problems related to global issues. The delegates’ ability in research, writing, negotiation, and public speaking were also tested in this conference.
A number of universities around the world participated in LIMUN 2017 by sending delegates that would be role-playing as UN member states. Through their contributions in LIMUN 2017, delegates from each school are expected to be better world citizens and be part of the future international generation of leaders.
The conference also supported the Universitas Airlangga vision and mission to achieve World Class University. This year, students of Universitas Airlangga are ready to experience new challenges and join with students around the world to raise awareness about international issues in the LIMUN conference.
