Established in 2002, LUMS Model United Nations Society (LUMUN) is a student-run organization at the Lahore University of Management Sciences. For the first time in Pakistan, it introduced the concept of Model UN simulation and hence prides itself on being the pioneer of the MUN culture that is now widespread across the country.
The biggest event in the LUMUN calendar is the annual, five-day conference held at the LUMS campus, which hosts over a 1000 national and international delegates. LUMUN seeks to provide for the delegates a platform where they get to simulate actual committees of the United Nations, debate over the same issues of global relevance, and come together to draft a solution of their own.
Apart from organizing the annual conference, LUMUN has been involved in several specialized activities like its year-round Social Responsibility Program (SRP) which is currently affiliated with several NGOs working for education – directly in sync with the 2nd Millennium Development Goal of fostering universal education. Alongside this, the delegations from LUMUN have consistently cemented its position internationally as well by bringing back awards and great honor for the country, from various international platforms like Harvard WorldMUN, MUNTR, etc.
For the past 10 years, LUMUN has sustained its position as not only the biggest but also the most reputed MUN conference of Pakistan. With this year’s LUMUN X conference, the society not only aims to host another fantastic simulation but also aspires to commemorate a decade of diplomacy in grand fashion.
