Be part of Harvard’s first ever Model UN conference in the Middle East.


Our Mission

Harvard Model United Nations Dubai 2020 is HMUN’s inaugural conference in the Middle East. Delegates will participate in substantive committees, engage in meaningful dialogue, and make explicit connections to global diplomacy.

While HMUN Dubai seeks to push the boundaries of Model United Nations, it builds on more than half a century of tradition. The Harvard International Relations Council is the world’s leading Model United Nations educator, having organized annual conferences since 1953. HMUN Dubai will be our 163rd conference to date, and we will bring you the very best our organization has learned over these years.

Join our conference to meet directors and delegates from all over the world, participate in engaging social events, and enjoy four days in the magical city of Dubai!
