UNISCA Summer Course
The UNISCA Summer Course is a Model United Nations: a simulation of the United Nations where the official rules of the organization and some of its official Committees are being simulated (for example, the Security Council and the Human Rights Council, etc.). Participants are assigned a different country and for the duration of the conference, and they represent the country’s official policies and defend them on different global issues, depending on the Committee they are part of.
The UNISCA Summer Course is an international, interdisciplinary university course. UNISCA is not a regular university course. It is a two-week Summer Course consisting of two parts: the first week there are a series of interesting lectures and on the second week the participants have a United Nations simulation (MUN). Both parts are mandatory for all participants and consists of academic and practical preparation for the Model United Nations.
