Letter from Secretary-General
On behalf of our ILSAMUN Team, it is my utmost pleasure and privilege to announce that the 1st session of the ILSA Model United Nations Conference will be held in Istanbul University, Istanbul. My name is Tolga Kutsal and I am extremely pleased to serve as the Secretary-General of ILSAMUN’22. The first edition of ILSAMUN will be held between 11-13 March 2022.
Since we have started to organize this conference, Our team’s main aim has always been to provide our participants an occasion to comprehend the operation and structure of the United Nations while offering a sociable experience that creates opportunities to meet with new people after a period of long pandemic.
In this year’s conference, we will be very honoured to welcome you all participants to our 4 English and Turkish prestigious committees which are more than capable of appealing to every person who has an urge to attend. As the Secretariat, we have considered our committees as following: General Assembly Committee, Economic and Social Council, UN Development Programme and The Crisis Committee.
Due to Covid-19 restrictions, we all have experienced a period that requires us to stay at home after we finally got vaccinated and therefore started to normalize our lives back, there are too many events that had to be suspended or cancelled such as MUN Conferences. As a result in those circumstances, we had to fall behind in the development discussions. We, as the ILSAMUN Academic Team, aimed to resurface and emphasize these crucial issues which surround our lives, by allocating these committees.
As the Secretary-General of ILSAMUN’22, I would like to welcome you all to our conference already now. See you in March.
