History of CNMUN


China National Model United Nations Conference (CNMUN) is the most influential Model UN activity in China. As the leading Model UN organizer, UNA-China introduced Model UN into China in 2000 and started to organize Model UN activity in 2002. China National Model United Conference CNMUN was established in 2004. It is hosted by UNA-China and sponsored by Australian Human Rights Commission. Since its debut, CNMUN has developed into the 9th session in 2012. The 8th and 9th CNMUN were not sponsored by Australian Human Rights Commission because that the Australia side was in review of all projects within the framework of the China-Australia Human Rights Technical Cooperation Program during 2011-2012. Centering mostly on human rights issues, CNMUN has been galvanizing and tapping into the intelligence and passion of those involved by serving as a platform for conversation and cooperation. Up till now, nearly 2500 participants have taken part in the previous 9 sessions.
