About Us

Honourable MUN Directors, esteemed delegates, respected committee Chairs and welcome guests,

DIMUN is back! The tenth annual Dulwich International Model United Nations conference (DIMUN XI) will be held at Dulwich College Beijing from the
13th of March to 15th of March 2020.

Model United Nations is a unique opportunity for students to expand their knowledge of world affairs and improve their public speaking skills through research, discussion and debate with other international students who share the same passions.

At DIMUN XI, Key Stage 3 (middle school) delegates will be debating a total of 28 topics in eight different committees. The conference will be supported by experienced Key Stage 4/5 (high school) chairs and the DIMUNITE press team, led by Secretaries-General Erik Chen and Yi Xin Lee.

A Decade of Change

A past decade of change begets an impending decade of change. As we celebrate the tenth anniversary of DIMUN in March 2020, the changes that we have witnessed throughout this bustling decade require the close attention of our global community as they would, if left unattended to, jeopardize the current prosperity and progress the world is making. DIMUN XI therefore challenges you to pursue sustainable solutions to the variety of issues that you will face while working collaboratively to protect national interests but also to find areas of compromise.

Message From the Founders

Honourable Directors, Distinguished Chairs, and most of all Esteemed Delegates, The Dulwich International Model United Nations (DIMUN) conference was created to bring MUN to students often considered too young to fully understand, appreciate, and participate in the complexities of politics, debates, and problem-solving. When we came up with the idea for DIMUN, at around sixteen years old, we had already attended several Model UN conferences around the Asia Pacific and knew that this perception was completely wrong.

DIMUN was therefore founded to provide opportunities for Key Stage 3 (middle school) to experience Model UN in an academically rigorous but supportive environment, with the guidance that new delegates and directors deserve. At the heart of the DIMUN experience is the belief that MUN should be by and for students, and that with open minds, curiosity, and creativity, students are willing and able to rise to every challenge.
