Learn Today, Lead Tomorrow.

Dear Delegates, Advisors, and Parents,

Welcome to Yale Model United Nations XLIII! 

My name is Michael Carden and I have the honor to serve as the Secretary-General for YMUN XLIII. The Yale International Relations Association and YMUN Secretariat are proud to announce that our forty-third session will be held from January 19th to 22nd, 2017 on Yale's campus in New Haven, CT. Registration for the conference is now open!

As we begin preparations for our forty-third iteration of Yale Model United Nations, we are committed to our educational mission and strive to create an unparalleled delegate experience. We are excited to announce brand new committee experiences for our delegates this year: the first-ever International Court of Justice, as well as a revamped Press Corps, both of which we believe will quickly become cornerstones of our conference.  We will continue to offer delegates a unique debating experience through our use of YMUN Procedure, and are thrilled to be making YMUN more accessible through increased financial aid.

Finally, the YMUN experience goes beyond the committee sessions—hosted in the heart of Yale University, YMUN gives delegates and advisors a chance to experience Yale. Our Yale Day program, Global Exchange Program, as well as the Yale Showcase, give delegates exposure to Yale’s professors, extracurricular groups and resources.

As my Secretariat and I continue preparing for YMUN XLIII, be sure to like our Facebook page here, and follow us on Instagram here and Twitter here. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at ymun.secgen@yira.org. For specific questions regarding registration, please contact ymun.delegations.us@yira.org for domestic delegations and ymun.delegations.intl@yira.org for international delegations. I hope to see you in January!

Thank you for your interest in our conference.


Michael Carden

Secretary-General, YMUN XLIII
