Dear delegates and MUN Directors,

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to Cyprus Model United Nations 2017!

The conference will take place from the 3rd to 5th March 2017 at the University of Nicosia in Cyprus.

Given the ongoing situation in the region, the focus of this year’s event is inevitably linked to Middle East. With the international community trying to maintain the increasing refugee waves and address terrorism-related concerns, CYMUN 2017 is to be conducted under the theme “Building the New Middle East: a regional and European Dimension”.

It is our aim and aspiration that by the end of the conference our delegates will have adequately addressed and proposed inclusive positions on how to tackle the burning political, economic, societal and humanitarian issues deriving from the crisis in the Middle East. Looking forward to a more original and innovative experience for the delegates, we have enriched our debating procedures with simulations of specialized UN committees.

The secretariat is working tirelessly to address every single detail prior to the commencement of the conference so that the academic aspect is combined with an inclusive social program.

Please visit our website to learn more about the application procedure and the topics of the different committees. For any questions or inquiries please do not hesitate to contact us at business.cymun@unic.ac.cy.

I am personally looking forward meeting you all in March!

Marios Charilaou
Secretary General
Cyprus Model United Nations 2017
