One of the platforms IRSAM offers for students to actively engage in international relations is achieved through the forum of Model United Nations. Model UN, or “MUN,” allows students to portray different political roles, represent diverse perspectives, engage in debate on substantive topics. Students are provided the opportunity through Model UN to participate in this critical dialog on international issues and find solutions to problems the international community has faced in the past, is currently facing, and will face as issues arise in the future. More importantly, Model UN lays the groundwork to prepare these students to be future world leaders.

IRSAM Hosts 3 Annual Conferences 


Secondary Schools’ United Nations Symposium (SSUNS) is IRSAM’s high school conference that presents a unique opportunity for students at a young age to participate in diplomatic discussions as they distinguish themselves as young leaders.
