Now in its seventh year, Yale Model United Nations Korea (Yale MUN Korea) has established itself as a premier conference on the East Asian Model UN circuit. Yale Model United Nations hosted in New Haven, CT is now in its fortieth year and continues to be one of the largest and most prestigious conferences in the high school Model UN circuit. Yale MUN Korea bring this experience to delegates in Seoul, Korea to further spread the Yale MUN educational mission through simulations of the United Nations.
Yale MUN Korea is distinguished by its deep commitment to promoting global citizenship and fostering an educational environment in which delegates can engage in the world’s most pressing international relations issues. Our conference fundamentally differs from other Model UN conferences in Asia due to its unique approach to facilitating debate and collaboration. We utilize the western Model UN approach, which emphasizes in-committee cooperation and building critical thinking skills under pressure. Furthermore, our smaller committee sizes allow delegates to experience intense cross-cultural exchange and challenges to consensus among parties with vastly differing interests. Delegates will be encouraged to practice personal diplomacy and negotiation skills in the spirit of international cooperation.
