Excursion to Geneva

In February, part of the delegation traveled to Geneva for four days to visit several institutions relevant to our preparations for NMUN. We visited the Iraqi embassy, where the First Secretary and the Secretary for Disarmament gave us detailed answers to our questions, which will be a great help for us to represent Iraq as adequately and realistically as possible. Other appointments included the German embassy, the UN Development Programme (UNDP), the UN High Commissioner of Refugees (UNHCR), and the Lutheran World Federation (LWF), an NGO that works with Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) and refugees. A final highlight was our visit to the Palais des Nations, the headquarter of the United Nations in Geneva, which made us only more curious and excited about the simulation in New York, which will take place in the headquarter there. Speaking of highlights, the delicious cheese fondue we enjoyed together at the lake should not be forgotten either! This trip was a nice conclusion of the semester, and a great start into the final preparation phase. We thank our Head Delegates Berith and Martin for the excellent organization!
