MISSION

DUMUNA believes in building up the leadership quality in students for the betterment of the country. Our aim is to prepare the students of University of Dhaka as future diplomats and policymakers by skill development through Model United Nations practice, informing them of the mode of operations in United Nations.

VISION

DUMUNA aims to popularize the concept of Model United Nations as an academic simulation of the United Nations in Bangladesh, which can provide a platform of generating knowledge and solving real-world problems. We envision DUNMUN as one of the most prestigious MUN conferences of the world.

CHALLENGES

DUMUNA looks forward to a world without poverty, without inequality, without discrimination, and without violence. We believe a promising future lies ahead in the hands of the youth, who can bring about radical changes. Our focus is to inspire the youth of Bangladesh to join that move forward and prepare them to be global citizens.

What we do to promote diplomacy, negotiation, and public speaking

DUNMUN

Dhaka University National Model United Nations (DUNMUN) is the signature event of DUMUNA that takes place at our university campus, usually at the end of every year. The three to four days conference has already set a benchmark in Bangladesh and also in South-East Asia. More than 500 students from around the world participate in it to enhance their leadership and diplomatic skills by debating, discussing, negotiating and developing solutions to the agendas of different committees. From 2012, we’ve been successfully and proudly hosting DUNMUN and aspire to do so in the future as well.

DU Diplomatic Conclave

Every year, we arrange a two-day long intra MUN- ‘Diplomatic Conclave’ in Dhaka University premises. This particular event is arranged for the students of Dhaka University only. By participating, they not only understand the procedures and structure of an MUN but also develop diplomatic and leadership skills, get ideas of international politics through solving given agendas. After two days of brainstorming, an award ceremony and a formal closure take place.

Delegation

Every year, we send our delegation team to numerous national and international conferences from where delegates return with impeccable achievements, knowledge and learnings. Before sending delegations, delegates are trained and taught different perspectives of agendas and several mock sessions are organized to make them more confident.

Workshop and Training

DUMUNA works for the intellectual and creative development of Dhaka University students under the perception of United Nations assemblies. So, every year we arrange multiple workshops for the general members to develop their skills on public speaking, negotiations, analytical abilities, in-depth researches, presentations, communication skills, teamwork skills and many more and many of these workshops are open for all. When workshop ends, there are assessments and mock sessions so that the participants can apply their learnings.

Mock Sessions

Throughout the year and especially after recruiting new members, we arrange multiple mock MUN sessions for educating our new members about MUN and its strategies practically by providing them a real MUN environment. It helps our members to get used to with MUN sessions and to alleviate their hesitations and nervousness.

Study Circle

We organize Study Circle for our members regularly to give them an opportunity to sharpen their knowledge on global affairs and events that are taking place in the world right now. The study circles are conducted by our senior members who possess a vast knowledge about international affairs. These particular sessions help our members to excel in their MUN career and to develop their general knowledge as well.

FOMUN

For the first time in the history of MUN, in 2020, we organized an online MUN workshop which is known as Fundamentals of MUN. The workshop was organized for those MUN enthusiasts who want to learn and develop their MUN skills to excel in their MUN career. It was a five-day long workshop focusing on different topics of MUN and with an evaluation test. All individuals who obtained minimum marks in the evaluation test received a certificate. In these five days, participants learned about the history of MUN, different MUN strategies, strategies to do well in MUN and many more.
