The Olive Branch: Model United Nations in the Middle East

The Olive Branch is a monthly email newsletter on Model UN in the Middle East produced by THIMUN Qatar, Best Delegate, and Online MUN.

Model United Nations is growing rapidly across the Middle East. Students and teachers are starting MUN clubs and conferences throughout the Gulf, across North Africa to the west, as far east as Afghanistan, up north to Turkey, and down south to Sudan.

THIMUN Qatar is at the epicenter, hosting the region’s largest MUN conference with over 1,200 high school delegates. TQ also hosts the Qatar Leadership Conference, is pioneering Arabic-language Model UN, and has leveraged Online MUN to teach students in other countries.

To keep you up to date on the exciting changes happening with Model UN in the Middle East, THIMUN Qatar and O-MUN have partnered with Best Delegate to produce the monthly Olive Branch Newsletter.
