MUNRFE Director-General successfully took part in UN DPI and WFUNA events in New York

Mr. Vitaly E. Savenkov has been selected to participate in the UN Department of Public Information MUN Workshop conducted in the UN Headquarters, New York City, on November, 6 – 9. This Workshop became the second one for MUNRFE and Mr. Savenkov, after his participation in the previous Workshop held in Tokyo in 2014 together with Ms. Elena A. Kiseleva. Traditionally, the entire Workshop was conducted fully by UN officers, namely UN DPI Outreach Division Project Manager Mr. William Yotive and UN DPA Security Council Affairs Division Director Mr. Movses Abelian as a special guest.

After the Workshop, there has been the World Federation of the United Nations Associations (WFUNA) International MUN (WIMUN) 2015 conducted on November, 10 – 14. Due to his successful selection, Mr. Savenkov performed the duties of the Secretary of the Special Political and Decolonization Committee of the General Assembly as the only Eastern Europe representative in the global Secretariat team of 25+ people. Totally, WIMUN 2015 gathered more than five hundred high school and university students from all over five continents, accompanied by the extensive guidance of the UN and WFUNA staff. The list of the key-note speakers at the opening and closing ceremonies in the GA Hall included the Deputy Secretary-General Mr. Jan Eliasson, the Under Secretary-General of Communications and Public Information Ms. Cristina Gallach, the Director of the UN DPI Outreach Division Mr. Maher Naser, the UN SG Envoy on Youth Mr. Ahmad Alhendawi, the WFUNA Secretary-General Mr. Bonian Golmohammadi.

Both events are linked with the UN4MUN concept elaborated by the UN DPI together with WFUNA to ensure the most accurate Model UN simulation. The UN4MUN Rules of Procedure fully correspond with real UN practices and procedures and emphasize the decision-making by the Member States. The main focus of the conference is not an adoption of a resolution by a majority vote, but adoption of a resolution by consensus. The entire process (and all formal meetings) is led by the GA officials: President and Vice-Presidents for GA Plenary and Chairs, Vice-Chairs, and Rapporteurs (altogether referred as Bureau) for GA Committees. These officials are elected from and by the delegates before the Conference, while the Secretariat is appointed by the Secretary-General and does not interfere in the decision-making. In turn, the Secretariat provides infrastructure and logistics, together with SG reports (which serve as traditional background guides). Specifically, as the SPECPOL Secretary Mr. Savenkov was in charge of the SG report on the committee agenda item, trained the delegates and guided the Bureau with the UN4MUN procedures. Eventually, Mr. Savenkov became the first MUNRFE member ever honored to deliver a speech from the UN General Assembly rostrum, along with his WIMUN Secretariat colleagues.

Overall, the UN4MUN provides completely different framework of MUN and is being actively promoted by the UN and its partners, including WFUNA and the Best Delegate. That is why, as one of the leading MUNs in Russia, MUNRFE is intended to be actively involved in such developments.

MUNRFE would like to express its deepest gratitude to the Far Eastern Federal University, and personally to the Director of the Youth Policy Department Mr. Ilya O. Yaskov, for its significant support and cooperation.
