About Us

DIAMUN 2022

Dubai International Academy Model United Nations (DIAMUN) is a THIMUN affiliated conference that aims to bring students from all over the world together to cooperate, discuss, and debate current world concerns in order to find practical and effective solutions. We are excited to present our fourteenth annual conference in 2022. The conference is organized by a student-led executive committee that works tirelessly to produce a high-quality MUN conference and is led by DIA’s very own teachers. Our DIAMUN team is made up of students from all around the world, giving the conference a much-needed international outlook. Each year, approximately 800 students from several continents attend DIAMUN, bringing individuals from all backgrounds and cultures together. Even in the middle of the present global problems, the DIAMUN team vows to use these disadvantages, and convert them into benefits, to create an unrivaled and unprecedented MUN experience.

 

The DIAMUN Executive Team is dedicated to delivering the greatest MUN experience to all, from first-timers to oracles in the field of debate. The DIAMUN conference welcomes delegates from all over the world to engage in rigorous debates on current economic, social, and political problems, providing a doorway to the world of diplomacy and allowing students to polish their public speaking, writing, research, and dispute resolution abilities. Our goal is to establish the strong voices of today’s youth, and to encourage more and more students to speak up. The debates that occur in every conference are sharpening and provide a solid basis for students to exhibit their abilities by expressing themselves; writing, and negotiating in a setting that resembles the United Nations. Furthermore, communicating with delegates of varying backgrounds push all participants to be more open-minded, be a risk-taker, and be more inquisitive, resulting in the formation of a distinct and intelligent group of people, that leave each conference with more and more knowledge.

Initially, DIAMUN consisted of only three committees: The Security Council, The Second General Assembly, and the Human Rights Commission; the following year, three new committees were added: The First General Assembly, The Third General Assembly, and the World Economic Forum. In 2011, DIAMUN received official recognition as a 'The Hague International Model United Nations' (THIMUN) affiliated conference. The following year, at DIAMUN 2012, two new committees were introduced: The Global Environmental Summit and the League of Arab States. They too were added to the growing tally of committees. In 2013, two new committees, the African Union and the Advisory Panel Question, were added in order to change the outlook of the conference as a whole and tackle issues that were significant not only to the Middle Eastern region but also on a global scale.
 

DIAMUN 2013 was exceedingly successful, with delegates responding actively and enthusiastically to the wide range of issues discussed and producing well-researched resolutions. In 2014, the International Court of Justice was another first to the ever-expanding conference. DIAMUN 2015 had the greatest amount of progress in the history of DIAMUN by far. With four new committees including the Environmental Commission, Federal National Council, Nuclear Security Summit, and The Special Conference, we welcomed over 1,200 participants in our 12 committees and we were proud to host the biggest conference in the Middle East at our very own school. DIAMUN 2016 saw the addition of another successful committee, the Special Conference in Arabic which served as a forum for Arabic-speaking students at the conference to feel comfortable debating by speaking in their own language about pressing matters in and around the MENA region. DIAMUN 2019 made history as the first-ever paperless conference in the world.

 

 

The 2021 DIAMUN Conference brought upon changes that were unprecedented and unique. The COVID-19 pandemic affected millions of people all over the world, allowing us as humans to come together and play our part in preventing the spread of the disease. Keeping in mind the health and safety of our local and international participants, the 2021  conference was the first-ever session to be held completely virtually.


The Model United Nations community at DIA has seen great success and witnessed remarkable progress in debate within every committee. However, our philosophy is to continuously improve the quality and standard of our conferences as well as to bring a new perspective to DIAMUN. Our executive team is working extremely hard to provide students a conference that will be bigger and better than ever despite the complications that came with the COVID-19 crisis. Our conference promises to bring about a higher caliber of debate, success, and accomplishment. We look forward to seeing you there.
