Model UN is a simulation of the workings of the organs of the United Nations Organization and other regional bodies – a student conference which through active debate, discussion and negotiation, aims to educate participants about world affairs, effective communication, globalization and multilateral diplomacy.
MUNs in India have taken off in a big way, both at college and school level. NLS MUN, with just 6 editions, has already managed to make its mark. Since the first edition of the conference in 2009, NLS MUN has proven itself to be one of the best MUNs in the country in terms of the standard of debate.
This year we aim to expand our horizons in terms of the volume of delegates and the quality of debate.

A. United Nations General Assembly – Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space (UNCOPUOS) discussing:
1. The use of nuclear power sources in outer space – Revisiting the 1992 NPS Principles and the Liability Convention.
