LUMUN UN Affiliation
In 2017, the LUMUN society procured an affiliation with the United Nations in Pakistan, making it the only UN Affiliated MUN Conference in the country. Mr. Neil Buhne, UN Resident Coordinator and UNDP Resident Representative in Pakistan, travelled to LUMS and met with members of the LUMUN Society to sign a Memorandum of Understanding whereby both parties agreed to facilitate each other in areas of common interest. This has opened up numerous new possibilities for the society and its members in the coming years especially in terms of collaboration on the various projects undertaken by SRP to give back to the community. The affiliation has also paved the way for the committee resolutions from the LUMUN conference to be sent to the UN for consideration in both domestic and foreign matters – a feat that has strengthened LUMUN’s reputation as one of Pakistan’s most competitive and stimulating conferences.
