About The Event
Alongside ESCP Europe's London, Paris and Berlin students, these three days will welcome guests from other top ranked French business schools HEC, ESSEC, and NEOMA.
YEStoUN will feature an opening conference on the topic of diplomacy, followed by UN simulation games during which participants must reach an international agreement on a specific issue, using United Nations rules and procedures.
The Model UN session in New York City will take place in March 2019. The ESCP Europe London campus team will proudly represent the Republic of Italy, and have already been working hard on understanding the economic and geopolitical issues facing their country. In New York they will be expected to participate in negotiations led by young UN officials as Chairs, beginning in hotel-based committee meetings and then moving to UN Headquarters. Delegations will be assessed on their capacity to conduct a deal negotiation, serving the global interest without losing sight of the national interest of their represented country. To achieve this takes a combination of interpersonal and oratorical skills, as well as a good knowledge of geopolitics, international law and the functioning the UN bureaucracy.
