Harvard National Model United Nations 2020

The Sixty-Sixth Session
February 13th - 16th, 2020


Letter from the Secretary-General

Dear Delegates and Faculty Advisers,

It my distinct pleasure and honor to invite you to join us at the sixty-sixth session of Harvard National Model United Nations. Hosted from Thursday, 13 February to Sunday, 16 February 2020 at the historic Park Plaza Hotel in the heart of downtown Boston, HNMUN is more than a standard Model UN conference. Serving as a forum in which over 2000 delegates from 60 countries come together to diplomatically debate and propose solutions to the world’s most pressing issues, HNMUN seeks to connect not only delegates with this forum, but with each other. The friendships delegates make traverse boundaries, cross cultures, and last longer than weekend we share at conference. Staffed by over 200 undergraduate Harvard students, HNMUN continues to be the oldest, largest, and most prestigious collegiate conference of its kind, and our entire staff is excited to continue this legacy as we embark on our journey to the sixty-sixth session.

This year’s conference features twenty-six committees, all staffed by extraordinarily passionate Directors. From our renowned Press Corps and Non-Governmental Organizations Programme, to our eclectic and fast-paced Specialized Agencies, and from the depth of debate and diplomacy in our General Assemblies, to the intimacy and dedication of the Economic and Social Councils and Regional Bodies, delegates are going to have access to extremely substantive and rewarding debate in diverse committee styles and forms. While committee sessions are important, it is certainly the discussions delegates will have outside the committee room that will define their HNMUN experience. With commitments to social impact and a celebration of diversity, our partnerships with the Resolution Project and the Miracle Foundation, coupled with our nightly social events for delegates and advisers provide all HNMUN attendees opportunities to share their perspectives with people from all over the world.

To apply for Harvard National Model United Nations 2020, you can do so using our recently renovated online registration platform, MUNBase. Registration will open in mid-May, and MUNBase is linked on the navigation bar atop this website. Before you register, I would strongly encourage you to peruse this website, which contains important information regarding registration deadlines and fees, renewed conference policies and standards, and summaries of each committee. Please remember that should you not be able to find answers to your questions on this website, you can always email our dedicated Administration team The Secretariat and I truly cannot wait to welcome you to what is shaping to be the most successful iteration yet of HNMUN this February.

Best Regards,
