Journal : UNO You Know?
"UNO, You Know?" is an online platform where students interested in writing can publish their opinions and observations on United Nations conference that they attend, in the name of GIMUN. As GIMUN has a Special Consultative Status giving us access to the United Nations Office in Geneva, GIMUN has decided to use this to give young people a glimpse into the world of international relations on a concrete level.
We believe that we respond to the need of creating a place that allows one to orientate oneself in the vast domain of international affairs, where the quantity of available information is staggering. This journal will therefore firstly gather the necessary and essential information on the United Nations. Furthermore, this journal will also serve as a platform allowing young people to express themselves by writing articles and by sharing their opinions on international current topics.
