WHAT IS PEAMUN?
PEAMUN XIV marks a landmark return to the beloved in-person conference format of the past. This year, MUN at Exeter is expecting record turnout not only for an in-person conference, but throughout PEAMUN's relatively short history. The conference will be held over the course of Sunday, November 6th, and will welcome delegates from across the United States and beyond.
WHO ARE WE?
PEAMUN is a Model United Nations conference developed, run, and staffed by students at Phillips Exeter Academy.
Twelve years in the making, PEAMUN is a well-developed Model United Nations conference for both novice and experienced delegates alike. Last year, PEAMUN XIII drew over 500 delegates as an online conference. We cannot do this without the help of our dedicated club members, who each year volunteer their time and energy to become trained staff members and chairs. Courtesy of them, we are able to bring you nine committees this year from the NATO response to the War in Ukraine to the takeover of the Royal Mint in Money Heist.
PEAMUN this year has nine amazing committees, all staffed by our amazing club members. Our committees are a balance of fun committees, serious historical dramas, fictional worlds, and pressing world issues. You can find committees for PEAMUN XIV here.
Every Monday during the school year, our club members publish articles to this website about issues of global import. We use this mini-publication (internally called MUNdays) as a way for us to learn more about geopolitics together as a club. You can find our Out-of-Town articles here.
In preparation for the excitement of PEAMUN, we've compiled some potentially useful resources to help you develop your Model UN skills, speaking ability and diplomatic acumen. We also use them to help our delegates prepare for conferences. Feel free to peruse them here.
