2019 Summer Institute in Global Leadership: Human Rights

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

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

Note: This week is appropriate for students who are passionate about human rights 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 enjoy learning new tips and tricks from our inspiring intern team and during the multiple no-prep practice simulations.

You Can Expect to:

– Meet other students who are 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!
