The University of Central Asia's Model United Nations (MUN) conference brought together 120 participants from four regions of Tajikistan, as well as Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Pakistan, and Afghanistan. Organised by UCA students at the Khorog campus from October 21-23, it aimed at educating young people in the arts of debate, negotiation, and public speaking by providing a forum in which they can hone their skills. Participants discussed the fascinating realities and complexities of international relations through a series of simulations of international organisations. The first MUN conference was held in 2018 at the Naryn campus. 

The conference featured two guest lectures by Alif Khalfan, Vice President of Product Strategy at Disney on cybersecurity, and Fatima Kassam (pictured, bottom left), Leaders International Forum Global Coordinator for Poverty Alleviation, who shared her previous experiences working with the UN’s World Food Programme in African countries.

“We organised this conference to start conversations about current issues facing our society and the world,” said Saif Ur Rahman, UCA student, and conference organiser. “Six committees covered a variety of economic social and cultural issues, and collectively, the conference participants came up with a set of possible solutions to problems that exist in our daily life,” continued Parvina Sultonmamadova, UCA student and organiser.
