NAIMUN offers an unparalleled experience to International Schools. Students from these schools will not only profit from the conference itself but also from a distinct cultural experience in Washington D.C. This is made possible both through frequent and close interaction with fellow delegates from around the United States and through NAIMUN’s exemplary out of committee experience. The chance to have intimate tours of Capitol Hill (the legislative body of the United States government) and other D.C. institutions will allow delegates to gain greater understanding of what shapes US foreign and domestic policy. Furthermore, the opportunity to tour the Georgetown University campus, along with the interaction with its students, offers delegates a firsthand view of University life in the United States. Overall the chance to be in bustling Washington D.C., for many the capital of the world, while fervently debating international affairs will give delegates a unique opportunity to broaden both their political and cultural horizons.
