TEIMUN 2021: In Person, in The Hague

TEIMUN, or the European International Model United Nations, is a conference held every summer in The Hague, the Netherlands, for students from all over the world.

TEIMUN is the oldest MUN conference in the Netherlands and continental Europe, with over 30 years of experience.

 The dates of TEIMUN 2021 will be announced soon. 

TEIMUN strikes the perfect balance between a professional atmosphere and social interaction among the delegates. Our councils are interesting and inspiring for beginner and veteran MUNers alike, and our renowned parties and social events are just as much part of the conference as the sessions.

Despite the current uncertainty, the TEIMUN Foundation is working towards organizing a physical conference between July 12 and July 17 in The Hague. Nevertheless, there remains a possibility that it may become necessary to switch our conference to an online or other format. In this case, all delegates will be informed in due time.

The Theme of TEIMUN 2021: Cooperation in Times of Crisis

We are living in unprecedented times. Economies are shut down, communities are shut off, and Covid-19 infection rates march forward at an unrelenting pace. As the world eagerly awaits a (hopefully near) end to the pandemic, it is vital that we do not neglect the many other crises we face.

UN agencies have been leading the fight against environmental, economic, health, humanitarian, and security crises around the globe, enabling cooperation beyond borders. The Security Council conducts peacekeeping at a global scale, the UNFCCC provides a crucial framework for combatting the climate crisis, UN Women strives to empower women and girls worldwide, and the Legal Council ensures that international law is created and codified.

Other organizations do not sit idle. NATO promotes democratic values and enables its members to cooperate on defence and security-related issues, while the European Council brings together the Heads of State or Government of EU member states in order to discuss matters related to the Union’s executive branch.

But crisis implies urgency and intergovernmental organisations face great challenges in rendering swift and unanimous decision. So, how do we build effective capacities for crisis management at the international level? How do we remain calm in the face of a crisis, without downplaying its severity? And how do we make sure that international responses are not co-opted by national interests?

We are going through the greatest global crisis since the Second World War and, like then, the only thing that will redeem humankind is cooperation. Join us at TEIMUN 2021, where we explore the role of international organisations in facilitating this cooperation.

Why Join TEIMUN?

A Unique Experience

Participating in the week-long TEIMUN conference is a highly valuable experience. You will learn a lot about the inner workings of international organizations, such as the UN, and what it is like to represent a country and defend its foreign policy.

Intercultural Communication

You will meet a lot of young, enthusiastic people from all over the world who share your interest in international affairs. Getting to know each other and sharing perspectives has never been a problem at TEIMUN.

Discover the International City of Peace and Justice

During the TEIMUN week, you will have ample opportunity to explore The Hague with our wide range of (cultural) excursions. With good walkability, there are also many opportunities for you to explore the city on your own.

The Hague: The Heart of National and International Governance

TEIMUN takes place in The Hague, the so-called International City of Peace and Justice. It is home to the International Criminal Court, the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, the International Court of Justice, and many other international organizations. The Hague is also the governmental centre of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. During the conference, the TEIMUN Foundation organizes excursions to several such institutions.

Aside from the hustle and bustle of international political life, The Hague has a lot to offer to eager tourists. Nearby is the beach at Scheveningen, where we organize the famous beach party every year. In the centre of The Hague you can visit countless museums and explore the city’s beautiful architecture. For those of you who do not have the time to see the rest of the Netherlands there is Madurodam, a miniature version of the country, where you can see all the features characteristic of Dutch culture.
