Jakarta Model United Nations 2018
Jakarta MUN is an annual conference held by Indonesian Student Association for International Studies (ISAFIS) which was first held in 2011, becoming the pioneer of MUN conferences in Indonesia. JMUN offers an opportunity for youth to experience the challenges of international negotiation and diplomacy. In JMUN, participants will act as a diplomat from a particular country in discussing international issues, simulating the process that occurs at a UN conference.
Since JMUN 2018, JMUN uses the UN4MUN procedure. This approach puts diplomacy back at the center of Model UN and corrects the inaccuracies of most Model UN in the world.
