HMUN China 2014
Dear Delegates and Faculty Advisors,
Thank you so much for attending Harvard Model United Nations China 2013. Delegates from 27 countries convened in Beijing this past March to simulate diplomats, NGOs, and journalists focusing on the United Nations. Delegates can share photos, videos, and reconnect with their fellow delegates on our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/hmunchina.
HMUN China recognized a number of delegates on each committee for excellent demonstration of diplomatic skills and abilities. The list of awards given at HMUN China 2013 is available here.
Over the next two months, our conference will undergo our annual transition process leading up to the launch of HMUN China 2014. Our fifth session will be held from March 20-23, 2014. Further details and logistical information will be released in May, and registration for next year’s conference is likely to open at the beginning of the summer. Please refer back to our website for conference updates!
Thank you all again for your participation and support for HMUN China 2013, and I wish you all the best in your future endeavors.

Dear Delegates, Faculty Advisors, and friends of HMUN China,
It is a true honor to welcome you and your delegation to Harvard Model United Nations China 2013! We are very excited to announce that the fourth session of this conference will take place from Thursday, March 21 to Sunday, March 24, 2013 in Beijing, China.
After a 3 hugely successful conferences, each which has built on the previous, I could not be more excited to begin our year of preparation for this annual simulation of distinguished United Nations bodies, international organizations, and dynamic non-state actors. For 60 years, HMUN has served as the premier forum for high school students from around the world to discuss the most pressing and challenging global issues. HMUN’s conferences abroad have furthered our mission of bringing international relations experience to as many students as possible. Through preparing and debating solutions to the complex problems plaguing today’s global community, not only do delegates develop expertise in public speaking, writing, and research, but they also practice skills required for successful negotiations and UN diplomacy. In my opinion, there is no better location to hold such an event than China- a political, economic, and social force for centuries, a force which has definitively reasserted itself on the global scene in recent years. With this background in mind, Beijing in particular provides a truly unique perspective on the evolving relationship between China’s rich cultural history and recent economic growth, thus serving as an ideal city for inspiring social and cultural exchange.
This year, for the fourth session of Harvard Model United Nations China, a dedicated and passionate staff of Harvard Students has been selected to run smaller, more intimate committees for a more substantively rewarding experience. In addition to the traditional General Assembly, Regional Bodies, and Economic and Social Council committees, we also offer five special application options in the Specialized Agencies, including three crisis simulations, the Non-Governmental Organizations Program, and the Press Corps. The directors of HMUN China are carefully selected and trained to ensure delegates have the most stimulating and focused debates possible. However, HMUN China is an experience that extends beyond the discussions in the committee room. Delegates are encouraged to interact with one another after committee sessions at our cultural and social events, such as the Open Spaces, Delegate Dance, and Global Village. In addition, the delegates are encouraged to explore all that the city of Beijing has to offer before, during, and after the conference.
On behalf of the HMUN China staff and WEMUN team, I hope to welcome you to Beijing next March for HMUN China 2013!
