Cíle předmětu
The students will be confronted with the series of case studies. Depending on the number of the students, we will do either MUN or simulation of local conflicts. Both have similar modus vivendi. Model United Nations – MUN – is a simulation of the UN. The MUN l is designed as a simple and effective way to introduce students to the workings of a crisis/security forum such as the UN SC. Everyone who participates represents, alone or in a small group, a country or organization. Every representative assumes the role of the delegation of the country or organization he/she is representing to the UN, making the conference as realistic as possible. The delegate represents the opinions of the country that he/she is representing and not his/her own. The students are obliged to draft a position paper before the seminar. The aim is to draft and approve the Resolution of the Security Council of the UN. All needed materials will be given to students in advance by a teacher who will lead the session of the SC UN. The course is organized into four blocs, in which the contemporary crisis will be dealt with. Possible topics include: crisis in Ukraine, ISIS, rape of women in DRC etc. The topic will be precised one week prior the session.
