As the Secretary General, I am filled with pride and confidence to introduce our second annual Southern China International Model United Nations (SCIMUN) conference, which will be held on March 16-18, 2017. SCIMUN 2017 will seek to recapitulate and magnify the quality, professionalism, and integrity of our previous conference. As a SCIMUN pioneer, I can assure all attendants that SCIMUN’s core values and founding principles will be strongly adhered to; moreover, all attendants will receive a multi-faceted and fully developed experience within our conference. Just as all MUN conferences, SCIMUN’s goal is to encourage a sense of international interconnectedness and a more open minded approach to worldwide issues. However, SCIMUN promises to deliver these qualities in a rigorous, academic, and fully supportive context.
Continuing the annual tradition, this year’s SCIMUN conference will be adopting an overall conference theme—The Rule of Law. SCIMUN 2017 will be the first conference to be operating under a fully functional constitution drafted by Mark Shen, the Secretary General of SCIMUN 2016. At SCIMUN we believe that it is imperative for any institution or organization, be it at a microcosmic or a macrocosmic level, to be able to function justly, accounting for all citizens and officials, to take into consideration fundamental and human rights, at all levels of society, and to endeavour towards a corruption free and transparent framework. All of these factors, when syncretized, demonstrate a viable organizational entity. Without this basic framework, any institution cannot be truthfully referred to as fair or equitable; thus, it is in our efforts to promulgate and even apply these principles within our conference.
SCIMUN has, within its first year, built a reputation for its integrity and its supportive background. Our conference is not meant to be elitist, nor does it aim to be purely introductory; rather, SCIMUN is fully assured in its ability to assimilate both heavily experienced and novice participants. Thus, I sincerely and wholeheartedly welcome you all to SCIMUN 2017; it is with robust optimism that we complete our preparations for our second SCIMUN conference. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions, concerns, or suggestions you may have in regards to SCIMUN.
