Ten students of the Department of Legal Studies’ Human Rights and Comparative Constitutional Law programs participated in the Vienna Human Rights Model United Nations (VHRM MUN) on April 11. MUN is a simulated session of the UN Human Rights Council, organized by the University of Vienna and the Academic Council on the United Nations System. MUN took place at the Vienna International Centre, the campus and building complex hosting the United Nations Office at Vienna.
CEU students, together with students of the University of Vienna Master of Arts in Human Rights formed delegations of two members and took roles as diplomats. They investigated international issues, debated complex human rights problems, and developed solutions to these problems. Delegates represented different countries and argued as realistically as possible in the country’s position. CEU students were randomly assigned the following countries:
Indonesia: Kenan Sadovic and Lejla Hodzic.
Greece: Claire Lops and Maha Ali.
Hungary: Ganna Dudinska and Milica Nesic.
India: Malak Harb and Nayomi Gonzalez.
Afghanistan: Aqeel Ahmad and Findlay Glynn.
The MUN organizers rewarded the delegation of Afghanistan, represented by Aqeel Ahmad and Findlay Glynn, with a certificate as one of the best two delegations of the conference.
