BIMUN arrives in its 3rd edition making it one of the most prestigious UN simulations in Africa.

The theme for BIMUN 2019 is “INNOVATION AS A PATHWAY TO INTEGRETION AND DEVELOPMENT: CHALLENGES TO A DYNAMIC AFRICA”. By this theme, the conference will concentrate on how to address the African continent’s integration challenges and propose a sustainable and attainable approach to address such challenges faced by the continent in a globalized context. We will subject the various committees to analysing the economic development of Africa using an African analytic grid, we will contribute to the definition and implementation of innovative policies that are adapted to the specific characteristics of each economy. It is an opportunity for young people to fuel debates towards a united, integrated, peaceful and prosperous Africa that can participate fully in international governance.

Dear prospective delegates, accept the challenge to represent one of the Member States of the United Nations – present your ideas and solutions, discuss and debate with your colleagues, write real UN resolutions, and achieve the goal of passing the final resolution!
