Countdown to BUSUN XXIV!

Days Hours Minutes Seconds

Letter from the Secretaries-General

Dear Esteemed Delegation and Advisors,

On behalf of the Brown Model United Nations program, we are honored to invite you to the Twenty-Fourth Annual Session of the Brown University Simulation of the United Nations (BUSUN), which will be held on the Brown University campus from November 6-8, 2020. We are proud to say that BUSUN will welcome over 900 students and 100 advisors to our campus in November. While BUSUN continues to grow and evolve each year, we are excited to continue some of the traditions that we believe make our conference special. Delegations return to year after year because of our small committee sizes, informed and passionate chairs, and welcoming atmosphere. As a Secretariat and staff, we value diplomacy and do our best to create a productive and positive experience for all delegates and advisors.

We are thrilled to announce that the conference theme for BUSUN XXIV is "Institutions and Individuals." In Model UN conferences, delegates must collaborate with each other to craft policies that impact individuals on a global scale. These discussions often highlight the tensions that exist between the wish to grant local autonomy and the desire to centralize initiatives within international institutions. This theme will be reflected throughout the various committees our USGs have created, and we hope all delegates will keep in mind this imbalance of power when drafting resolutions and crisis arcs.

On behalf of the BUSUN Secretariat and our entire staff, we hope that you will be able to join us in November. Please contact our Director of External Affairs, Andrew George, at with any questions or concerns. We look forward to welcoming you to BUSUN XXIV!

Eamon McKeever and Helen Zhang
Secretaries-General, BUSUN XXIV
