A conference that cares

Main Bodies

The United Nations is an international organization whose aims are to facilitate cooperation in international law, international security, economic development, social progress, human rights, and - perhaps most importantly - achieving world peace.

Like the real UN, MUNA is divided into several committees. The main bodies at MUNA are in some ways different than at the real UN for practical reasons. For example, instead of a Human Rights Council and a GA2 on Economic and Financial affairs, MUNA works with a GA2 on Human Rights.

MUNA also houses a committee of the Council of Europe, dealing with the important issue of human rights in Europe.
