MUN Refugee Challenge Supporting UNHCR
NHSMUN is honored to participate in the MUN Refugee Challenge led by UNHCR! To promote grassroots awareness and discussion of the challenges refugees face around the world, MUN conferences are invited to join the MUN Refugee Challenge by debating and creating a resolution based on the chosen four key topic areas. Resolutions are submitted to a jury of UNHCR members, young refugee leaders, and independent experts who will collectively decide which ones to share with actual, real-life policy makers!
For NHSMUN 2020, we have decided to submit SOCHUM Topic A (Combatting Racism, Xenophobia, and Related Intolerance) in order to address how to counter toxic narratives about refugees and migrants. We can not wait to see the wonderful resolutions that emerge from the committee and are thrilled that delegates will be given the platform to have their voices heard!
