The Hague International Model United Nations (THIMUN)
Started small, as a local MUN conference in The Hague in 1968. Nearly half a century later, THIMUN has become a global leader in the MUN community. We organize four yearly MUN conferences as well as other regular MUN-related events throughout the world, and more are coming. We provide support for countless other MUN conferences on all continents save Antarctica, and maintain a prestigeous affiliation programe. We enjoy Roster Consultative Status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council and lobby for the sake of the MUN programe.
United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan, who visited THIMUN in 2002, stated:
"The fact that THIMUN exists to uphold the values of the United Nations among the young is particularly important, since it is from the young that we should draw our energy and inspiration as we strive to make the United Nations effective and responsive to the needs of the people worldwide."
