Nairobi (Kenya) -- A United Nations debate in Strathmore

The “Model United Nations” (MNU) is an institution associated with the UN that promotes a forum for university debate on global questions. Each year, representatives from universities all over the world gather to discuss solutions to regional conflicts and questions related to human rights, socio-economic development and the environment. The MNU has seats in each member country of the UN.

On February 16, 2008, there took place for the first time in Strathmore University a debate organized by the Kenya “Model United Nations.” The meeting was a preparation for the debate that would be held in Gigiri [the United Nations headquarters on the outskirts of Nairobi], between March 4 and 7. The five student winners of this debate will participate in the annual meeting of the “Model United Nations” in New York.
