BEIMUN Mission

"The Model United Nations program in Beijing is an extension of The Hague International Model United Nations (THIMUN). As an affiliate, BEIMUN seeks to reflect the ideas and principles of a peaceful post-Cold War world. The Coordinators of the program believe that this world order more accurately reflects the original motives of the authors of the 1945 San Francisco Charter than events following the Potsdam Conference of the same year. It is our hope that BEIMUN will continue to act as another regional center of THIMUN conference affiliates helping to revitalize the original ideals of the United Nations."

– Irwin Stein, Founder of BEIMUN, January 1993.

 Discourse in a Fragmented World 

One of the greatest challenges to face humanity so far in the 21st century is the polarisation of our everyday discourse. We live in a world in which our individual rights are being challenged wherever we are. Minorities who fled their homelands in search of a better future now find their lives threatened in the very nations they believed would protect them. Beliefs of empowerment and inclusiveness are crowded out by chants of nationalism and racial seclusion that have become so common little attention is ever given to them. Even the United Nations, the world’s foremost platform for common ground and reaching for global solutions to global issues, faces the threat of national leaders who refuse to engage in diplomacy, and who respond to problems with calls of protectionism and a return to isolationism. In the midst of all this, the question that must be answered is how to navigate this polarising environment, especially when recognizing the need to address issues like global warming that continue to grow in strength every day. For if today’s problems sow the seeds for tomorrow’s disaster, then perhaps the only thing we can hope to do is seek out discourse in this fragmented world.
