History of PresMUN
President Model United Nations (PresMUN) is one of the most prestigious Model United Nations (MUN) conferences in Indonesia presented by President University, Cikarang, West Java. Now, for those of you who have not been aware of it, MUN is an academic simulation of the United Nations conferences where the participants would assume the role of the delegates representing their assigned country in a certain UN-like council. There, they shall carry on their role by enhancing their critical thinking and diplomatic excellences, such as negotiating, debating, lobbying, and so on, in order to solve pressing international issues.
Organized by two creative bodies under the International Relations Department of President University—President University Model United Nations (PresUniv MUN) and President University Major Association International Relations (PUMA IR)— PresMUN currently holds the title of the biggest students-led event in Cikarang, West Java, Indonesia. The very first of PresMUN was held in the year of 2012 and it had received high enthusiasm from both local and international participants alike. Indonesia, India, Bangladesh, Nigeria, and Singapore were amongst the countries whose students had shown particular interest PresMUN 2012. The almost identical thing went on with PresMUN 2014, PresMUN 2015, PresMUN 2016, PresMUN 2017, and PresMUN 2018 as students from various countries like Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Afghanistan, the Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, Nepal, Bangladesh, India, Republic of Korea, People’s Republic of China, Uzbekistan, Liberia, Italy, and Australia saw for themselves the glimpses of the global decision making process.
