Domestic, global issues to figure in model United Nations



Chennai: A number of key domestic and global issues ranging from weaponisation of outer space, situation in the Middle East to creating reserve currency system and right to protest would be discussed by students of top institutions at a model United Nations here from February 22.

Organised by SRM University in collaboration with UN Information Centre, the three-day meet would be attended by students of IITs, NITs, Delhi University, Anna University and others.

"This will not only help the delegates in learning about these global problems but also see how these geo-political scenarios develop and change in real world," organisers of SRMMUN (SRM Model United Nations) said.

The event would also enable delegates to learn the art of negotiation and diplomacy, they said adding that the response for the 2013 version of SRMMUN was "huge".
