QUEEN'S MODEL UNITED NATIONS INVITATIONAL
QMUNi provides a unique blend of high caliber debate in a relaxed and welcoming environment suited for delegates with varying degrees of experience. With a variety of committees and topics to choose from, delegates will be able to make lasting relationships while gaining valuable experience discussing topics they are interested in. Excellent keynote speakers will complement these discussions from a range of different disciplines. This conference is meant to challenge delegates, be thought-provoking, and ultimately, leave delegates with an unforgettable experience. We hope to provide an intimate committee experience where delegates have ample opportunity to contribute and work with each other. We seek to share the famed “Queen’s experience” with delegates through the conference’s atmosphere, the tight-knit Queen’s community, and the significant historical backdrop that the city of Kingston provides.
QUEEN'S NATIONAL MODEL UNITED NATIONS CONFERENCE (QNMUN)
QIAA's newest initiative and inaugural High School Model UN conference, QMUN provides students the opportunity to explore Queen's campus during a weekend of intense and engaging debate. With a highly experienced and passionate secretariat, QNMUN seeks to make an impact on the High School MUN circuit and maintain QIAA's consistently high standards. The theme of the year is “Eye of the Storm: Conflict through the Ages” and will require delegates to use innovative ideas and fresh perspectives to best tackle the challenges they will face.
QUEEN'S INTERACTIVE CRISIS SIMULATION
QICSIM is a high quality and intensively interactive conference which simulates a particular global crisis. It differs from Model United Nations in that it is much more problem-solving based, giving students a greater hands-on experience with regards to international relations and crisis management. More importantly, the nature of the simulation gives participants an academic approach to many of the themes addressed, since an enormous amount of research goes into creating a realistic and meaningful simulation of international events. In past years, QICSIM has simulated the Syrian Uprising, an Arctic Crisis, The Sudan Referendum and more. QICSIM is unique as it offers students a chance to gain insight into the realistic workings of crisis management from a state perspective. This experience is enhanced by participation from cadets in the Royal Military College. QICSIM also attracts renowned guest speakers including Senator Roméo Dallaire who spoke at the 2011 conference.
