CHRIST JUNIOR COLLEGE, Bengaluru

CJC Model United Nations

Model United Nation engages the participants in an authentic simulation of the United Nations by learning about the UN system, the skills of debate, compromise, conflict resolution and negotiation.

Most of the MUN team members cherish the experience of unraveling the workings of the world diplomacy through the lens of current events.Christ Junior College organized the inaugural session of its very own CJCMUN in 2008 and since then the MUN-ing culture at Christ Junior College has grown in leaps and bounds. It went inter-school in 2010 and leading practitioners of MUN-ing in Bangalore have shown keen interest in its participation.

Christites have been consistently putting up commendable performance at the MUN-ing circuits in Bangalore and in 2011 at the arrival of the India edition of Harvard Model United Nations organized by The Harvard International Relations Council it was ready to make its presence felt at the conference. In a conference attended by more than 1000 delegates including delegates from South Asian countries, Turkey and Harvard itself, Christ Junior College participated with a contingent of 16 students.

In a conference that had representation from more or less all the well-known institutions in the country, we were among the few institutions whose students were called out during the award ceremony. As the delegates of Guinea-Bissau, Nikunj Agarwal secured Best Delegation in the United Nations Environment Program, Krupa Maria Varghese secured Best Delegation in the United Nations Development Program and Yohann Ninan John received an Honourable Mention in the United Nations High Commission for Refugees. These three students were among the hardly three percent delegates who hit the marquee during the award ceremony. We hope the new batch of christites will uphold this remarkable feat.
