In the framework of Model United Nations Albania Initiative (MUN Albania), we organize this Model United Nations Conference as an educational emulation, in which young people can learn more about diplomacy, international relations and the United Nations. MUN Albania includes and improves research, public speaking, debating and writing, critical thinking, teamwork, and leadership skills. During this activity, participants walk into a diplomat's shoes, discussing one of the most salient issues faced by the international community and offering different solutions by adopting a resolution.
MUN Albania 2019 is taking place from 4-8 December at the Ivanaj Foundation
Workshops & Round Table
The MUN Albania Initiative
Overall, our main objective is to promote and foster the culture of multilateralism, dialogue, international cooperation, in dealing with fundamental issues and recent global developments.
How great is an Albanian MUN Road Trip? Cool enough that I joined this group to write this review. There’s three types of MUNs. Those that suck (not discussed here) Those that are great professionally (MUNAPEST, OxIMUN, WebMUN before reforms...) And those that are Amazing Adventures. Across 35 MUNs, I’ve only seen 3 Adventure MUNs. And Albania ranks #1. I honestly had no expectations when going to that country. But every surprise it gave me was a positive one. The scenery as we travelled single-lane mountain roads was picturesque. Mountainsides laid with bunkers flanked by a view of the azure sea and blue skies. Tirana was like a trip back to how I imagine Budapest, 1991 looked like. Already post-communist, but still stuck in an era of old. Luxurious 5 star hotels and posh restaurants surrounded by torn-down buildings and people fixing cars on the street. An American-style GYM that matches or exceeds anything I’ve seen in Budapest that you enter from a filthy back alley. Communist murals in a main square filled with designer shops. But the biggest surprise was... the people. Hospitality here is unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. Everyone speaks English, and everyone wants to show you what an amazing country they’re from. MUN Culture: not highly developed yet. MUN Enthusiasm: like the Golden Age of IDSA. 35 MUNs and I’ve been to the very best ones Europe has to offer. Why am I taking about THIS ONE then? This December is your shot to find out. I said I’m retiring from MUNs after this year’s MUNAPEST. But this is the one that I MUST return for. Don’t make the mistake of missing out on this!

MUN has truly been a life changing experience and throughout this
conference I learned a lot of new things.
I learned how to sound convincing while expressing my opinions, how to
write a speech and an effective resolution which will work for the many,
not the few. I feel my public speaking skills have improved, I learned
how important it is to debate while acting like a diplomat, among many
It’s hard to put my experience into words, but as I look back at the
conference days now, all the “diplomat” friends I made, the memories
and all the fun we had in social events, it makes me feel sad it’s
over and wish I could do it again as soon as I can.
MUN is a great opportunity for everyone to learn new things, make
new friends and be part of a memorable experience.
Don’t miss it!
My name is Azzurra Tavelli and I took part in MiniMUN Tirana 2018 as Vice-President of the ECOSOC.
Even though I had taken part in several MUNs throughout my life path, I had never been in a role of such responsibility.
During MiniMUN Albania 2018 I got to know wonderful people, which turned out to be awesome professional partners first, and friends later on. I felt totally included and engaged in any moment, situation and activity, and everyone was kind and gentle. Here I found what I consider being the most important lesson from MUNs: I felt part of it, and contributed building something great. MiniMUN was an experience I will never forget.
