This recap was provided by Benjamin Dobkin

The 2013 edition of the Princeton Model United Nations Conference was a great success. The Conference attracted approximately 800 delegates from all over the world, including Colombia, Singapore, China, and Germany.  Delegates in General Assemblies drafted resolutions that addresses the most important and complex global problems challenging world leaders today. These topics ranged from international monetary policy to chemical and biological weaponry to corruption in healthcare.  Other delegates simulated specialized organizations such as the Chinese Politburo, the Ghanian Constitutional Convention, and the Berlin Conference. At the same time, many PMUNC delegates faced historical and modern geopolitical issues in real-time in a series of crisis committees. A few, such as those in the Joint-Crisis Committee, the Irish War for Independence, had the opportunity to re-write the course of history.  Other delegates discussed critical issues affecting U.S. foreign policy, such as the U.S.’s response to the Iranian nuclear crisis or Syrian Civil War. Outside of committee, delegates met their counterparts from all over the world and made long-lasting friendships. The entirely student-led staff of PMUNC enjoyed discussing global issues with students and Faculty Advisors alike, and looks forward to PMUNC 2014!
