The Boston Area Model United Nations Conference is the collegiate conferences hosted each October by Boston University’s International Affairs Association. BarMUN represents a standard of excellence and creativity unparalleled in any other Model United Nations simulation; the multi-disciplined, fast paced, and interactive simulation truly sets us apart from the prototypical conference. BarMUN places an emphasis on non-governmental actors, often overlooked, to add a true taste of reality. Delegates are challenged to respond and react to the decisions and actions their peers make throughout the conference.

BarMUN Facts:

  • 200+ collegiate delegates; 100 dedicated staff members
  • 1 Crisis Director per committee
  • Fully Integrated Committee Tracks– each committee has the ability to contact, manipulate, threaten, demand, and react to every other committee within their track.
