Abstract

‘Change through Empathy’ - as both the title of this insightful

United Nations (AMUN), this phrase has multi-dimensional significance

and action. Firstly, these words capture something vital about the ethos,

(MUN), and of the 20th AMUN in particular. Convened by students from

engaging simulations of international organizations and political actors

process, students put themselves in the shoes of diplomats, journalists,

political, social, cultural, economic and environmental issues. In

to inhabit different political and ethical points of view and even

own beliefs and opinions. In other words, AMUN participants learn to

debate and policy-making.
