In mid-November, 9 of our delegates set out for the pictoresque city of Oxford to attend one oft he most prestigious conferences, OxIMUN 2016.
After many training sessions, our delegates finally had the chance to slip into the lives of real diplomats, to safeguard the interest of the United States of America, Brazil and the Czech Republic. They had the chance to discuss major issues such as the Kurdish peace process, TPP or preventing worldwide water conflicts.
In the Joint Crisis Committee, two of our delegates underwent sex and personality change and became Mary Lowndes and Margaret Ashton, two suffragettes from 1913, who managed to overthrow the British Government by bombing and storming of Westminster Palace, get voting rights for all women and appointed democratically the first female prime-minister.
Lastly, we concluded our weekend with two awards: best position paper for Britta Felzmann and Commendation for Leopold von Waldthausen. Well done!
On June 2015, our delegation traded suits for jerseys and participated in the TU Investment Club’s football tournament, where various student initiatives of TUM participated in a series of matches. For our new delegation, the tournament was an important team-building event, and our delegates showed their abilities in participating in non-verbal confrontations.
Congratulations to AcademyConsult, the victors of the tournament! We look forward to a rematch.
