2020 Summer Institute in Global Leadership: Human Rights

UNAGB Summer Institutes bring together local and international students to discover global challenges and address them through Model United Nations programming. Students will learn to think critically about the problems facing our society, use negotiation tools, and form proposals that make solutions possible.

This week, we’ll explore the issues around human rights. Be prepared to learn different aspects of the topic, build skills in public speaking and negotiation, and put everything together in a full day Model UN simulation.

Note: This week is appropriate for students who are passionate about global issues and/or love Model UN. For the first day, we’ll split into different groups based on Model UN experience. New-to-Model UN’ers will learn new skills in a supported environment and experienced Model UN’ers will learn new tips and tricks during the multiple no-prep practice simulations.

You’ll have a chance to:
– Meet students from all over the world passionate about global affairs
– Learn from guest speakers, including NGO leaders, diplomats, and local politicians
– Delve into current global issues
– Improve your public speaking and negotiation techniques
– Learn new Model UN strategies
