Dear past and future participants of Bratislava Model United Nations,

My name is Jakub Bokes and it is a great honour for me to serve as Secretary-General of one of the oldest and most renowned Model UN conferences in Central Europe. Since the year 2000, BratMUN has been organized by secondary school students to give their international counterparts the opportunity to improve their public speaking, but also leadership and teamwork skills.

Over the past 15 years, BratMUN has welcomed delegates from more than 25 countries – making it the biggest and most prestigious UN simulation in Slovakia. Annually organized by International Baccalaureate students, BratMUN is known for its professional management and individual approach to delegates, making it a unique experience for any student interested in current world affairs.

Following the tradition from past years, eight diverse UN bodies will be presented at BratMUN, where delegates will be asked to voice and defend their countries' standpoints. Moreover, we shall present two expert committees this year, specially designed for elite MUN-ers with vast debating experience and developed skills of diplomacy.

Delegations wishing to attend BratMUN will have to pass a competitive selection process and only then will be allowed to start preparing for their authentic UN experience in November.

The organizing team are looking forward to welcoming you in Bratislava from the 4th to the 6th of November and are working tirelessly to prepare the best MUN experience in Central Europe.

On behalf of the BratMUN organizing team,

Jakub Bokes
Secretary-General
