The journey of Achmad Yani Model United Nations (AYMUN) began in 2018 through the establishment of Achmad Yani Short Diplomatic Course (AYSDC) as the first event that introduces the United Nations conference simulation in the University of Jenderal Achmad Yani (UNJANI). Following the success of the first event, the Student Association of International Relations Department of Jenderal Achmad Yani University (HM KMJ HI UNJANI) under the Academic Research and Development Division further held AYMUN in 2019 as the national-level conference at Ibis Hotel Trans Studio Bandung. It has been a tremendous journey for all the people who have involved in the event. With the involvement of the hardworking committees, supportive Board of Dais, fruitful and substantial debate, and amazing delegates, AYMUN 2019 became a remarkable conference.
During the uncertain time in the midst of a global pandemic, the joy from the previous two events can't be held in 2020. However, the committee of AYMUN 2021 believes that this pandemic is not something that should restrain us from developing ourselves, but it should lead us to innovate and adapt to the current situation instead. Thus, we are coming back with AYMUN 2021 as the first offline conference that will be held in 2nd-4th April 2021 with the strict health protocols, including the requirements for every element to conduct SWAB Test before the conference, and the implementation of national health protocols in order to ensure the safety and comfort of every element involved.
This year, we are presenting "Strengthening International Peace and Security in the Midst of Global Catastrophe" as our grand theme as the security issues have been running through our tradition due to our identity as a Smart Military Campus. Furthermore, we are so proud to offer you four councils, namely the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC), the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), Disarmament and International Security (DISEC), and the Historical Crisis Council (HCC) as our first crisis council.
Lastly, we hope that AYMUN 2021 will be your first and safe offline conference this year and we will be waiting for you to participate in a fruitful yet great debate in April.
See you in Bandung!
