On the weekend of February 26th-27th the Institute sent 19 students representing 3 delegations to the Wesley College Model United Nations. The students were tasked with representing the views of Japan, Zimbabwe and Poland on issues varying from nuclear power to the use of drones for military purposes and the accommodation of refugees from war torn areas.
The students took part in a variety of debates as they attempted to pass their resolutions and tackle the various challenges posed to them. It was a great opportunity for all students to engage with the ideals of discourse and cooperation espoused by the United Nations.
The students who took part were Molly Whelan (4th), Hannah Keating (5th), Moya Onakin (5th), Diana Panova (5th), Sinead Cummins (5th), Suleman Khan (4th), Angie Parisi-Ploumpi (4th), Nathan McGeough (5th), Brian Crehan (5th), Manal Hussain (4th), Elizabeth Hayes (5th), Niamh Ni Iceadha (5th), Eoin Leonard (5th), Cormac Kavanagh (5th), Clara O’Carroll (5th), Mark Hanrahan (5th), Naomi St.John (5th), Wura Arisekola (5th) and Mark Smyth (5th).
A special mention is owed to Wura Arisekola for winning an award for the high quality of her debate and analysis for the Historical Committee.
