SAMUNprintversieStudent Amsterdam Model United Nations is a Foundation which stimulates the participation of university students in simulations of international organizations. Through an extensive series of trainings, SAMUN prepares its delegates to exercise diplomacy and the rule of law in practice. In the past, delegations of SAMUN have visited Harvard Model United Nations, PIMUN in Paris, SMUN in Stockholm. Besides, SAMUN delegations successfully participated in national conferences such as GrunnMUN and TiuMUN. This has resulted in many Best Delegate Awards and honourable mentions.
Although SAMUN has existed for over ten years, the organization has become an official Foundation more recently, in the summer of 2014. At this moment, SAMUN delegations participate in three international MUNs and several national MUNs each year. The Foundation seeks to bring together university students from all disciplines and nationalities as part of the SAMUN delegations, resulting in an international network. Furthermore SAMUN is extending its activities and cooperates with other organizations, including the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons and the University of Amsterdam, to organize one-day simulations. SAMUN is a quickly growing Foundation with great ambition and welcomes anyone who shares our passion for Model United Nations.
