What is MUNISH?

MUNISH is an annual Model United Nations conference hosted by The International School of The Hague, The Netherlands. The three day conference takes place from Friday to Sunday, towards the end of October, and attracts over 1000 high school students from around the globe. The days are filled with fun, enjoyable, yet serious debates replicating the United Nations while aspiring to the goal of global cooperation to tackle the world's pressing issues. The spirit of MUNISH can be summarised in the statement below...
