On behalf of the Secretariat and my own I would like to welcome you and invite you to this year’s Sarajevo Model UN. I am humbled to serve as the Secretary-General for this year’s convocation. We aspire to make Sarajevo Model UN as a truly unique experience for participants with a passion for international affairs, international law, lobbying, public health and global problem solving. We are looking to help our participants channel their passion and further their understanding of multilateral organizations. Sarajevo Model UN is looking to host at least 90 potential future world leaders. Through simulating multilateral diplomacy and formal debate of the UN and by hosting a series of academic lectures Sarajevo Model UN will, hopefully, educate and inspire the next generation of diplomats, decision-makers and analysts. As an inclusive and educational conference we put skill and academic development at the forefront.
This year Sarajevo Model UN will be held at Hotel Hills, Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina from September 30th to October 2nd, 2016. Our dedicated Secretariat, passionate Executive Board and the Association of Law School Students at the University of Sarajevo have been working hard to make Sarajevo Model UN an exciting experience. We are looking forward to make Sarajevo Model UN a viable and valuable event in the region.
Sarajevo Model UN will have academic lectures presented by exceptional guest speakers. In that respect, I am delighted to announce that H.E. Stjepan Mesić, former President of the Republic of Croatia, and Mark A. Farha a distinguished professor of international affairs from Doha Institute will deliver lectures at this year’s Sarajevo Model UN.
For this year’s convening we will have four committees:
UN Security Council
World Health Organization
Gulf Cooperation Council
The topics that we will cover range from international finance and politics to global health issues. Hence, I am confident that students from different fields of studies will find the selected committees and topics interesting and academically engaging.
Finally, I am looking forward to meeting and working with all of you at this year Sarajevo Model UN, and making this year’s conference a valuable experience for all of us.
I use this opportunity as the Secretary-General to welcome you to Sarajevo Model UN and Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina.
