UN, You Know? is an online blog that allows students who have an interest in international politics and diplomacy to express themselves as journalists.
The blog is run by students with a variety of different backgrounds, letting them write about their experiences of international politics from their own unique view point.
It gives the opportunity to international students to be part of GIMUN outside of the Annual Conference.
Thanks to a team of translators, it is possible to find all articles in both in French and in English.
