Hello, my name is Dhwani and I will be serving as MUNOTH 2020’s Under Secretary General for Academics. I am a third year student of BSc International Relations and Organizations at Leiden University Campus the Hague. I started Model United Nations in 2016 at my high school in Jakarta. In the past three years I have attended several conferences across Europe, both as a delegate and chair. I have also participated in MUNOTH before – in 2018 as a delegate and in 2019 as a chair.
As the Under Secretary General of Academics, I am in charge of ensuring a high level of academic debate at the conference. This means I will be revising the rules of procedure, finalising study guides for each committee and be a general point of contact between the secretariat and chairs. Furthermore, this year’s conference theme, “Challenges to democracy” is particularly close to my interests in my study of international relations.
I am extremely excited to be given the opportunity to organize an international MUN conference in The Hague – the international city of peace and justice. I look forward to seeing you at the conference this April.
