The Hague International Model United Nations (THIMUN) Singapore Trip 2015
In 2015 the AISM THIMUN Programme has once again gone from strength to strength. From 15 to 21 November, the AISM Delegation participated in the 11th Annual Session of THIMUN Singapore. This year we were blessed with the task of representing the Russian Federation, India, The European Union and Cote d’Ivoire. In addition Chew Khai Kern was given the honour of being the President of the International Court of Justice (ICJ), Elsa Baker was made Chair of General Assembly 6th Committee, Aishah Kenton worked in the press corps and five others were selected to the Advisory Panel. All of our forty-two students involved, worked diligently and effectively.
Our THIMUN Programme this year focussed upon facilitation and mediation, as we worked to instill a distinct AISM MUN philosophy. This approach proved extremely valuable in helping our students build consensus on a wide range of issues on the international agenda.
Beyond the conference, we walked, ate and rode the MRT together, we visited the Asian Civilisations Museum, toured the historical district, rode the Singapore Flyer, saw the city from a river cruise, explored Orchard Rd and Clarke Quay and partied at the THIMUN Dinner & Dance.
Great fun was had by all and an invaluable educational experience was embraced on all levels. Our AISM delegates improved the public speaking, negotiation, mediation, formal writing, interpersonal and debating skills. THIMUN again proved to be the most valuable educational experience of the year.
