BITS Model United Nations Conference (BITSMUN) is one of the largest MUN conferences of its kind in the Indian Subcontinent. Organized annually in Pilani, BITSMUN attracts experienced and first time MUN participants from colleges and schools all over the globe.
The conference was founded in 2007 as a grassroots project aimed at introducing Model UN to students who otherwise would not have the opportunity to participate in this experience. As BITSMUN expands, we seek to reach out to more colleges and schools of various disciplines from all parts of the world to encourage greater participation in an activity that brings together knowledge in international relations and interpersonal skills.
