Letter from the Secretary-General
Dear delegates, faculty advisors and MUN enthusiasts,
My name is Ramiz A. Razzak and I am excited beyond words to serve as Secretary-General for the 2018 edition of the Marianopolis Model United Nations Conference!
Since its inception as a conference over a decade ago, MariMUN has strived to provide new and experienced delegates alike with a fresh take on the Model United Nations experience. We have achieved this primarily through our unwavering commitment to the delegate experience and our willingness to explore new and exciting committee ideas, a tradition which has been passed on through countless MariMUN Secretariat teams.
As such, this year, we will be offering our largest selection of committees to date, from our timeless WHO and SPECPOL General Assemblies to thrilling Crises committees on topics ranging from Game of Thrones to the American Civil War. What’s more, to cater to new delegates and initiate them to the workings of Model United Nations, we are continuing our widely successful Beginner General Assembly initiative while also adding a Beginner Crisis to our mix of committees. This is but one way in which MariMUN seeks to instill a passion for Model UN in our delegates all the while providing them with an educational experience.
However, all of this is only possible because of our amazing staff and my wonderful Secretariat team, both of which have been working tirelessly to create a conference that will foster critical thinking, diplomatic finesse, logical debating and astute problem solving, all of which are fundamental skills for any global citizen.
We have something for everyone at MariMUN, because our goal is to make sure that you have a truly memorable weekend. That is why I hope to see you there!
Ramiz A. Razzak
