Between May 31st and June 4th, 600 students from around the world gathered at Sciences Po to rethink international relations by taking part in the Paris International Model United Nations (PIMUN) conference. This event, which takes place in Paris each year, was founded in 2011 by students from several universities including Sciences Po, HEC and the Sorbonne.
The aim of PIMUN is to simulate negotiations at the United Nations by tackling major contemporary global challenges such as weapons proliferation, drones, and women's rights. With a diverse range of committees, the Paris simulation is considered to be one of the most important in the world. What were the topics addressed? What did students gain from this exercise?
