The XIIth Session of the Oxford International Model United Nations conference will be taking place between November 7th-9th 2014, in the heart of Oxford.

This year we aim to make things bigger and better than ever, opening up even more spots to anyone from anywhere, and even adding a couple of experimental committees!

As always, participants can expect a weekend filled with lively socials, eminent guest speakers, and our highly acclaimed debates all within the various colleges in the 900 year old University of Oxford!

We also recruit from the best of the best to provide you amazing directors and a professional press team and to ensure that you have an unforgettable weekend.

Best wishes,
The OxIMUN 2014 Secretariat

The Committees

At OxIMUN 2014 we have strived for a balance between small and large committees; global and regional; new and old; and for a large range of issues to be debated that relate to our theme of "Local Problems, Global Solutions".
Disarmament and International Security, this Committee deals with disarmament and other challenges and threats to peace that affect international security.
The International Monetary Fund's role is to promote economic co-operation, trade, employment, and exchange-rate stability, including by making financial resources available to meet balance of payments needs.
Social, Humanitarian, and Cultural deals with some of the most pressing social, humanitarian, and human rights issues facing the global community.
The International Atomic Energy Agency is an international organization that seeks to promote the peaceful use of nuclear energy and to inhibit its use for any military purpose.
Special Political and Decolonization Committee deals with a variety of subjects, including those related to remaining decolonization issues.
The International Civil Aviation Organization codifies the principles and techniques of international air navigation and fosters the planning and development of international air transport.
The Security Council is one of the six principal organs of the United Nations and is charged with the maintenance of international peace and security.
Security Council
The Group of Twenty is a forum for the governments and central bank governors from 20 major economies. It studies, reviews, and promotes high-level discussion of policy issues pertaining to international financial stability.
Economic and Financial, global issues that have direct impact on fate of individuals and on fate of quotidian community and societal life.
Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations is an agency that leads international efforts to defeat hunger.
The International Labour Organization (ILO) is a United Nations agency dealing with labour issues, particularly international labour standards and decent work for all.
United Nations Climate Change Conference is the yearly session of the Conference of the Parties to the 1992 UN Framework Convention on Climate Change and the Parties to the 1997 Kyoto Protocol.
The International Court of Justice is the primary judicial branch of the UN, its main functions are to settle legal disputes and provide advisory opinions on legal questions submitted to it.
The Council of the European Union is the third of the seven institutions of the EU as listed in the Treaty and represents the governments of the EU's member states.
European Council
The Economic Community of West African States is a regional group of fifteen West African countries. Its mission is to promote economic integration across the region.
The Association of South-East Asian Nations is a political and economic organisation of South-East Asian countries. Its aims include accelerating economic growth, social progress and ensuring peace and stability.
The Futuristic Security Council simulates future problems that the SC may face, such as conflict over ownership of Arctic resources or the threat of a North Korean attack.
Futuristic Security Council
The Historical Committee seeks to simulate a significant event of the past (from the Perestroika to Peloponnesian War), challenging delegates to change the outcome of the event and its effect on the world.
Crisis committees are special in that they do not have a parallel in the real United Nations. In this committee, a crisis (usually a historical event) is given to a team of students and the teams must come up with solutions.

The Socials

This year's social programme kicks off with our themed delegate reception, "All the Jazz". We are delighted to invite you to an evening of splendour at the stunning Victorian-era Oxford Town Hall. With a free drink upon entry and Jazzy tunes played live all evening, there is no better way to get to know your fellow delegates, chairs and OxIMUN staff and dance the night away!
Delegate Reception
Delegates over the age of 18 are invited to enjoy an evening out in one of Oxford's most beloved clubs. Located at the centre of Oxford, Camera is an all-time favourite of the city's students. On this occasion, the entire club will be exclusive to OxIMUN delegates until 11pm, after which we will continue our party on the ground floor all night long! Entrance to the club is included in the social pack, but there will also be an option to purchase tickets on the day for those without a full social pack!
Club Night @ Camera
The Committee Dinners will be held in Oxford's stunning College Dining Halls and are the perfect opportunity for you to unwind and socialise with your committee members and directors after a day of fierce debate. The dress code is smart casual.

This year we return to the historic Jesus College and Somerville College, both of which offer wonderful views. Furthermore, this year we are also adding two new dining halls: Exeter and St Antony's. All four will provide delegates with a delicious meal in an unforgettable and uniquely Oxford setting.
