The London International Model United Nations Conference is the LIMUN Foundation's flagship annual event, welcoming 1500 delegates to the great cosmopolitan capital of Britain for three days of intensive debate and exciting social events. For 2021, we will be moving to an online setting because of the unprecedented circumstances imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic. The dates of the 22nd Session are the 26th-28th March and the theme will be Reimagining Global Governance. More information on LIMUN 2021 is available here.
The 21st Session of Europe's largest MUN conference took place from 21st to 23rd February 2020, with this year's theme being Challenging the Dilemmas of Progress. With participants from over 100 different nationalities (the most internationally diverse MUN globally) gathering in London to discuss the challenges and opportunities that we our generation must confront, LIMUN continued to offer an unparalled platform for public speaking, negotiation and the pursuit of knowledge. New committees, new venues and the introduction of an open bar and chocolate fountains at our famous Saturday Ball only added to the experience of our delegates!
We enjoyed addresses from Rory Stewart OBE, former UK Secretary of State for International Development and Deputy Governor for the Coalition Provisional Authority following the 2003 invasion of Iraq, and Michael Keating, Executive Director of the European Institute of Peace and a former UN Under-Secretary-General with decades of experience in the UN System. We also welcomed several diplomats, including ambassadors, and social impactors who all shared their wisdom with the next generation of future leaders and change-makers through a variety of networking opportunities. The 21st Session was sponsored by SOAS's Center for International Studies and Diplomacy and the Embassy of France.
