Who We Are
Ladies and gentlemen,
"We are a humble, dedicated, and experienced group of high-school MUN-ers (many of us 3-4 year veterans) who have worked extremely hard to bring this event to Kyiv. Being the first MUN for high-school students in Kyiv, KIS MUN holds a huge sentimental value for everyone on this team.
We look forward to seeing our dreams manifest into reality during the three-day conference from March 27-29, 2020. I can already envision a flock of 40 well-suited delegates roaming the symbolic Maidan square, anxious to defend the position of their respective country whilst ultimately striving for a resolution - what more poetic justice could one desire?"
Malek Banat and Raman Narula,
Secretary-Generals KIS MUN 2020

HUMAN RIGHTS COUNCIL
The Human Rights Council is a fundamental part of the United Nations. Created in 2006, the youth of this committee does not restrain its capacity for greatness. The objective of this committee stems from its mission to preserve human rights across the globe. Currently standing at a staggering forty-seven members, participants are elected for three-year terms regionally. Throughout these terms, investigative reports are written on a multiplicity of countries in order to uncover possible threats to human rights and achieve collective solutions. The UNHRC exists as an integral component of the UN and a representation of the primary principles the UN stands for.
The Security Council is one of the most powerful parts of the United Nations. This committee is tasked with ensuring international peace and security. It takes charge in negotiating and settling disputes regarding threats to peace and acts of aggression between nations. It is allowed the immense power of imposing weighty consequences that are binding by law in an effort to arrive to solutions that wish to preserve global peace and security. There are currently fifteen member states of the security council and in accordance with post-World War II victories, five countries were granted permanent veto power and membership: The United States, Russia, The United Kingdom, France and China.
Get to know us better
Kyiv International School is a multicultural, flourishing community boasting over 52 different nationalities. In addition to being a part of the QSI (Quality Schools International) chain, KIS is a member of CEESA (Central Eastern Europeans Schools Association) and is therefore familiar with hosting various events like Basketball, Speech and Debate, and etc.
Students in KIS are also presented the opportunity to travel for high school MUNs. However, it is a known fact that we have never hosted one here in Kyiv. We do not exaggerate when we say that with you, fellow delegates, we will be making history - the first-ever KIS MUN!
