3-5th February, 2023
Dear Prospective Advisors, Delegates, and Organizers,
It is my pleasure to welcome you to AUSMUN 2023, the sixteenth annual conference of the American University of Sharjah Model United Nations (AUSMUN). It is a privilege for me to serve as the Secretary-General of AUSMUN 2023.
AUSMUN is an endless journey filled with tenacity, excitement, passion, and perseverance, that has taken the region by storm. Therefore, it is with great excitement we officially begin the countdown to AUSMUN 2023. The AUSMUN 2023 Executive Board strives to maintain our illustrious history, bring new and original innovations, and provide exclusive perks to all our attendees. AUSMUN continues to be the most prestigious hub for UN simulations in the region, embracing advisors, delegates, and organizers from a variety of backgrounds whilst introducing an array of committees and issues.
With “Sapere Aude” as our guiding principle, we encourage you to participate in an enriching, enjoyable, and memorable experience that will enlighten and inspire you. AUSMUN has always been a great destination to refine and sharpen all the necessary skills for a young diplomat in the making.
A few years ago, AUS participated in the Harvard Model United Nations, the largest and oldest of its kind in the world. We were able to learn first-hand about different aspects of the international political system and grasp our role as citizens of the world. Marking the 10th anniversary of AUS, local high schools in the United Arab Emirates shared a similar experience with the birth of AUSMUN. In a course of months, students from AUS worked relentlessly to create a conference that both delegates and advisors would enjoy and dearly remember. We proudly recall the immense success of the first AUSMUN. The delegates left the conference with a significantly improved understanding of international relations and organizations. We strive to replicate that remarkable feeling of accomplishment and satisfaction each year. This year marks the 16th Annual Model United Nations at the American University of Sharjah. Despite the unprecedented challenges posed by the COVID 19 pandemic, AUSMUN promises to uphold its legacy and make this year's conference one worth remembering for the years to come.
