BarMUN V was an official success! BarMUN V is proud to continue the tradition of being the only dual track, fully integrated crisis conference on the circuit. Our Modern track spanned the international community with committees spanning from the Cabinet of the Republic of Uzbekistan, to the Saudi Aramco. The Quds Force waged an ideological war against the West, while the Executive Cabinet of Mexico challenged drug cartels’ holds on northern states. History charted a new course on our Historical 1963 track, where President John F. Kennedy has survived an assassination attempt. Sullivan and Cromwell, LLP amassed a gigantic fortune while the Sandinistas took control of Nicaragua. Since BarMUN is a fully integrated crisis conference, delegates in every committee interacted  with other delegates to influence the BarMUN world while solving internal crises.
