The Washington Area Model United Nations Conference (WAMUNC) kicked off tonight! Almost 1,000 delegates from around the country have descended upon Washington, DC and the George Washington University campus.
I had the pleasure of giving the first keynote speech at tonight’s opening ceremonies — check it out below!
UPDATE: You can also hear an audio version of the speech here:
Professor Jay Albanese of Virginia Commonwealth University also delivered a presentation on transnational crime. Secretary-General Kelsey King spoke at the end of opening ceremonies and gaveled the conference into session.
