Honourable Delegates and Advisors,
It is my distinct pleasure to invite you to the 10th edition of BITS Model United Nations Conference, to be held in February 2018 hosted by the BITSMUN Society of the BITS Pilani KK Birla Goa Campus.
We at BITSMUN feel that this country and this world at large needs to educate its youth on politics and encourage an active participation from them in the political sphere. To that effect, we try to do our part in facilitating this participation through our Conference.
BITSMUN at its creation in 2009, hosted leading delegates from across the country. Over the years the event evolved to be an event of international repute, regularly hosting delegates from all across the world. Touted as India's fastest growing international MUN, BITSMUN hosts the crème de la crème of the International MUN circuit, hosting delegates from India, Italy, Germany, Belgium, Indonesia, Nepal, Kyrgyzstan, Bangladesh as well as from African Nations such as Kenya and South Africa, bringing together up to 350+ dynamic young minds annually, to deliberate on some of the world’s most pressing issues.
Personally, I have been a part of BITSMUN Society ever since joining this college, helping organize BITSMUN ‘16 and ‘17. Having seen this conference grow by leaps and bounds over the last two years instills me with the immense confidence about the coming conference.
After seeing the immense scale of BITSMUN’17, my Secretariat and I are trying to take BITSMUN ‘18 to even greater heights. We have a whole lot planned for you in terms of committees, crises, and the unforgettable BITSMUN Socials. BITSMUN ’18 will take place in the beautiful BITS Goa campus located in South Goa renowned for its beautiful untouched beaches, nightlife, and Portuguese architecture.
Our Executive Board and Delegates are the most integral part of our story and I'd like to once again thank you for choosing to be a part of our next chapter of BITSMUN Goa. I am certain that you will walk away from this conference with memories that you will cherish for a long time to come. If you have any questions, concerns, or comments between now and the conference, I encourage you to reach out to us using the contact tab on the website. On behalf of the entire Secretariat, I cannot wait to host you in Goa this February.
On a September morning, there was a commotion in American Airlines Flight 11, scheduled to fly from Boston to Los Angeles. The cause of the commotion: four men led by a man called Mohammed Atta. Five men who would later crash the flight into the North tower of the Twin Towers in New York. In the hours to come, three more flights would meet a similar fate; one flying straight into the South tower of the Twin Towers, the other crashing into Pentagon, while the last crashing in a field in Pennsylvania.
Six and half years ago, in the early months of 2011, a wave of protests spread across the Middle East and North Africa against dictators or elected governments from Tunisia to Iran, calling for better governance or the ouster of dictators who had been incumbent for decades. One such country was Syria, where the Ba’ath party (meaning ‘Renaissance’ in Arabic) was ruling with the Assad family at its head. Hafez al-Assad, a member of the minority Alawite sect, rose to power as the President of Syria in 1971, a position he held till his death in 2000.
The truth is that men are tired of liberty. Benito Mussolini, the Italian dictator is credited with this statement. Holding the reins of a European power for 21 years, he didn’t start off as an autocratic dictator. In fact, he started off as a Socialist journalist, writing on the principles his father had imbibed into him. This continued till he disagreed with Socialist views on Italy’s entrance into the World War 1.
Remembering an anti-apartheid legend. In 1964, a man was transported to the dreaded Robben Island Prison, which was to be his home for the next 18 years, his crime being treason against the then apartheid government. The first words he heard from his warders as he entered the prison were, “This is an island. Here you will die.” Over the years, rampant discrimination, physical and mental abuse and hard labour was routine.
