Slovenian student team wins model UN

A team of the Ljubljana Faculty of Law has been declared the winner of the World International Model United Nations (WIMUN), a popular UN simulation that concluded in New York. Up against 500 delegates from over 50 countries, the Slovenian team under Vasilka Sancin, the head of the Law Faculty’s international law department, won the most individual awards at committees and hence first place as the best delegation overall.

The competitors take the role of individual UN members and then navigate the debates. The Slovenian team represented China as a permanent member of the Security Council and Burundi, Sancin told the STA. She said such events were an excellent opportunity for students to gain first-hand experience. “They learned a lot, in particular in the sense of communicating with individuals from over 50 countries and trying to arrive at common solutions.”
