WIMUN Brazil 2018

WFUNA International Model United Nations (WIMUN) is the world's most accurate simulation of the United Nations. Located at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City, the World Federation of United Nations Associations (WFUNA) has worked closely with the UN Department of Public Information to precisely simulate the United Nations in Model UN programs and provide students with the most realistic experience possible.

The WIMUN conference features intensive training workshops taught by UN officials, briefings on important agenda items by UN Agencies, and conference sessions at the United Nations Headquarters in its flagship session in New York. WIMUN is the one of the first conferences to implement the WIMUN Approach on such a large scale, and they are working towards improving Rules of Procedures for educational purposes and bridging the gap between UN and MUN Rules of Procedure. Moreover, for the first time the WIMUN will simulate the International Court of Justice (ICJ). 

The WIMUN Brazil will take place in Campinas, Brazil, in September 2-6, 2018 in partnership with FACAMP - Faculdades de Campinas.

Among the students that are part of the WIMUN Brazil team are Gabriel Meneghel Caseta and Isabela Fernanda Mendes. Mr. Caseta and Ms. Mendes attended the 2018 Brazil Initiative Summer Program which took place at The George Washington University's Elliott School of International Affairs last June. Mr. Caseta is holding the position of Assistant Secretary-General for General Assembly Affairs and Conference Management, being responsible for the logistics of the event. In its turn, Ms. Mendes was assigned to write one of the articles that will serve as the basis for the studies of the students who will delegate at the event. 

The registrations to the event are open until August 15 and must be done through the WIMUN website, where all the detailed information about the event, such as registration fees, accommodation options, and so forth, can be found. 

Should you need any further assistance, do not hesitate to contact Mr. Caseta at gameneghel97@gmail.com and Ms. Mendes at mendes.isabelafernanda@gmail.com.

2018 GW ESIA Brazil Initiative Summer Program

For the second consecutive year, the Brazil Initiative at The George Washington University’s Elliott School of International Affairs hosted a student delegation from FACAMP (São Paulo/Brazil) for the 2018 Summer Program.

The GW ESIA Brazil Initiative Summer Program aims at providing the students a better understanding of the United States government and politics, the U.S. economy, and the international dimensions to the city of Washington, D.C through a multidisciplinary course that provides a comprehensive immersion in all these topics.

Among the activities covered in the schedule were lectures given by professors from GW; seminars presented by leading professionals; technical on-site visits to multilateral organizations; panels at think tanks and U.S. based firms; as well as cultural tours. The opening event was a remarkable one featuring as special guests Mr. Thomas J. LeBlanc, President of The George Washington University, and his wife Mrs. Anne LeBlanc. The students truly appreciated learning from President LeBlanc's knowledge and hearing great stories about the time he lived in Brazil. 

The program was co-organized by Dr. Mark Langevin (Director with the Brazil Initiative) and Ms. Livia Lopes (Assistant with the Brazil Initiative) in partnership with FACAMP and its coordinator for International Programs, Dr. Sulamis Dain. The ESIA M.A. Candidate Gabriela Oliveira also collaborated to the activities.

We had a marvelous experience with the students and are delighted to share with our readers some pictures of the events:
