NUmodelnato1400-740x493Global Model NATO Summit, organized and managed by university students and faculty members, is a global engagement initiative allowing participants to simulate NATO’s practice of consensus decision making. In collaboration with academic and military experts and practioners as mentors, representatives will be taking part in daily educational seminar and using their newfound knowledge to debate and learn in NATO simulations. Thus our mandate is: “Learning by Doing” as we are offering students a realistic opportunity to learn how Inter-governmental Organizations, like NATO, operate and educating participants with valuable leadership skills in national and international diplomatic, military and political settings.

Participants will form working groups and councils in NATO’s organizational structure as members, partners or journalists in each committee to practice unanimous decision making with one another. The event culminates with a day and half crisis simulation in which the delegates will learn how the ‘Allies and Partners Framework’ operates as it responds to a sudden emergency.

Representatives will be awarded with a certificate of completion. Best representative of each committee and representation of a member state will be awarded an interview by SFU’s Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences to be published online. The best journalist entry will have their work published in Canada’s FrontLine magazine. Best representatives will also be offered a chance to write an article in a forthcoming magazine publication.

Deadline: 24 June 2016.
