What is URJCmun?

URJCmun was born in 2013 as an initiative to promote the interest of the university community in the United Nations, international relations and diplomacy. After many years of work from the organization, and a magnificent participation of students every year, we have become the largest Model United Nations in Spain and Europe. However, although the numbers are different, the spirit is the same as in the very beginning: to change the university experience of everyone who passes through it.

What is a MUN?

The acronym MUN refers to “Model United Nations.”

MUN stands for Model United Nations. A Model UN at college level is a competition where students from different degrees debate representing different United Nations countries. Each representative, also called “delegate” participates in a committee where specific topics are discussed, going from social to economic issues, with vary many others in between!

The purpose of delegates in the committee is to find consensus among the other delegations and draft a working paper that, after further debate, will end up becoming a resolution on whichever topic they were discussing.

Europe's biggest MUN

After URJCmun was born in 2013 in Vicálvaro, it was not too late before some of URJCmun’s most classic traditions, parties and carnations, began, in 2014. In 2016, we had over 600 participants, and finally reached 

more than a thousand in 2020. After celebrating the event during the pandemic with a very strict, and successful, safety protocol, we became Europe’s biggest MUN in 2021.
