Crypto currencies, human rights abuses in North Korea and economic development in Sub-Saharan Africa were just some of the topics debated by students from the Institute at last weekend’s Model United Nations in Rathdown school (RADMUN).
22 students from the Institute attended the event, representing Chile, Argentina, Liberia and North Korea.
Two students were given the title of “Chair” and it was their responsibility to maintain order and ensure that the quality of debate and participation remained high.
Special mention must go to 6th year students Lia Kavanagh and Megan Punzet, who received distinguished delegate awards for their excellent contributions to the event.
The MUN is a great opportunity for students to learn more about international decision making and understand issues that affect the world from a variety of perspectives. Well done to all involved!
