BayMUN XIII

The 13th annual Bahrain Bayan School Model United Nations

About BayMUN

Our History

Since its inception in 2008, Bayan Model United Nations has grown to be one of the largest MUNs in Bahrain. Ever since then, the conference has worked to unite local and international students in a productive environment catered to solving issues of global significance!

“BayMUN” displays excellence that has propelled Bahrain Bayan School to host its annual conference that became the first in the country to be accredited by The Hague International Model United Nations (THIMUN). Therefore it is recognized internationally as abiding to the global rules and regulations of MUN conferences.

"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.
