"War Surrenders in the Presence of Peace"
Conference Theme: A Demilitarized Zone
A demilitarized zone (DMZ) is an area in which treaties or agreements between nations, military powers or contending groups forbid military installations, activities or active combat. DMZs can be characterized as a safe haven from the atrocities of warfare.
This conference will embody a “demilitarized zone”, setting barriers for international threats and leaving room for our humanity to shine amidst these dark times. BayMUN XIII will be a neutral zone, a safe haven, where delegates would freely debate issues that pose a threat to peace.
A New Perspective
BayMUN XIII aims to adopt a new approach by tackling the issue from its roots – that is, by breaking the barriers of indoctrination. Following the 16th Sustainable Development Goal, Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions, BayMUN XIII will embody a “demilitarized zone” where political and social constraints are pushed aside, and humanity reins.
Just as opposing soldiers come together and overlook their differences in a DMZ, so must we break the cycle of indoctrination that separates us from building bridges of peace and tolerance.
