SES MUN 2017

The SES Debate Committee hereby invites you to our annual Model United Nations event. A Model United Nations conference is the simulation of the way in which the United Nation functions. Focusing only on European countries, our MUN will tackle the current problem on how to increase cybersecurity. But how can European countries ensure, that while doing so, they don’t infringe on individual privacy rights? Where should we cross the line?

You will be representing one of the European Union countries and their stance on this issue. During the event, you are allowed to use technology to check up on important information and an information evening will be held, on the 21st of November, in order to give you some more insight into the process and topic of our debate.

If all  of this has sparked your interest, feel free to sign up using the link below. Due to limited spots this debate is only for SES members. We look forward to seeing you on the 29th of November.
