Each year Cedo Nulli participates on behalf of the Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR) in NMUN’s New York conference. Our delegation of fourteen highly motivated students will represent a UN Member State during the conference and interact with students from all over the world. Over the course of six months, students will hone their skills under the guidance of two experienced former delegates and numerous guest speakers.
Preparations for the simulation in New York consist of weekly trainings on Tuesday evenings. We discuss topics like ‘What are the functions and powers of the UN’ and ‘How can we best represent our (yet unknown) Member State’? Acquiring practical skills in lobbying, negotiating, public speaking, and resolution writing will form the largest part of the preparation process. These skills are extremely beneficial for any student within the Erasmus School of Social and Behavioural Sciences.
The NMUN delegates of 2018/2019 will be:
Michelle Crijns, Alex Dixon, Raluca Ghita, Floris Hager, Ondrej Hamel, Matt Hrusc, Tess Martina, Florence Mitchell-Green, Anne Veldhuis, Sarina Verwijmeren, Michelle Wardell, Danique van Winden, Cristina Yon and Barend Zomer

Who can apply?
All students from the Erasmus School of Behavioral and Social Science can apply. That means students of Public Administration, Sociology, Psychology, Pedagogical Sciences and Management of International Social Challenges (MISOC) can apply.
However you need to be a fulltime student at this faculty. To do a minor in one of these fields is not enough. You can be both an international or a national student and it does not matter if you are a first year Bachelor student or a Master student. You do need to be aware that the trainings will be every Tuesday, so make sure that you actually can attend these trainings.
Why should I apply?
If you are interested in discussing global issues, if you want to be able to speech in front of hundreds of people, if you are motivated to develop your diplomatic and negotiating skills, if you want to meet new people and become part of a team with one mission, if you want to work hard to become the best diplomat you can be and if you are eager to visit Washington D.C. and New York; then you should apply for this project. This project gives you a perfect opportunity to learn important skills, to understand international conflicts, to advance your horizons and to become a diplomat.
