by Chea-Mun Tan on August 30, 2017


The 14th annual session of the Malaysian Model United Nations Conference took place from April 21 to April 23, 2017 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Seventeen schools from all over Asia visited Mont’Kiara International School to partake in the 3-day conference for middle school students. Delegates had the opportunity to choose from 13 different committees with topics ranging from ensuring the freedom of press in North Africa to India’s ownership of nuclear weapons.  This year, MYMUN partnered with InMutual to offer delegates an online-experience to keep in touch and share their conference experiences with other delegates before and after the conference.
