Why join OISMUN?
Established in 2008 by the Oasis International School, OISMUN is the first and only bilingual Model United Nations conference in Egypt. Organised by its students, OISMUN aims to provide a platform for dialogue on the global issues facing the national and international community thus developing internationally minded citizens.
It is with prodigious enthusiasm to invite you all to the 15th annual Oasis International School Model United Nations Conference (OISMUN) that will be held in October 2022 at the Oasis International School campus in Cairo, Egypt. OISMUN is the first eco-friendly and bilingual Conference in Egypt with both French and English committees affiliated to The Hague International Model United Nations (THIMUN), a universal leader in the MUN community.
Our theme for this year’s conference “Maintaining conciliation upon world countries by endowing global and regional relations”, outstands past OISMUN themes; we aim to encourage our delegates to focus on solutions regarding the root of world conflicts, by ensuring good collaboration between the representatives of each global party with the goal of recognizing inconspicuous and salient universal matters of contention.
Our delegates will be given the chance to debate -through our theme- on diversified compelling global topics by uplifting discussions in some of the United Nations’ main organs such as The International Court of Justice, The General Assembly, The Security Council, The Human Rights Council and The Economic and Social Council, and specialized agencies such as the Commission on the Status of Women and The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime. In addition, it is with great contentment to introduce to you our two newest committees:
- “Le Haut Commissaire des Nations Unies pour les réfugiés”; a UN agency mandated to aid as well as protect refugees and forcibly displaced communities by providing assistance in their voluntary repatriation and local integration.
- The first French Junior Committee in OISMUN’s history: “Le Comité Junior du Conseil de Sécurité ”. We would like to allow young delegates to have their first experience going in depth into the content of our conference.
Other than adventuring our theme through our committees, our delegates will also be able to experience it throughout the entirety of our conference. We are committed to having a completely sustainable conference, in every sense of the word, and contrive the most inclusive and diverse environment possible. Thus, allowing our participants to be comfortable enough to orchestrate fruitful debates, along with sharing their ideas, perspectives and thoughts.
With our status as an environment-friendly conference, we are striving to adapt to the 17 UN sustainable development goals on a small scale-in our own community.
As a bilingual conference, we have established four French-speaking committees: “Le Conseil de Sécurité” (the Security Council) along with its homologous junior committee “Le Comité junior du Conseil de Sécurité” (the Security Council Junior Committee); “Le Conseil des droits de l’homme” (the Human Rights Council); and “Le Haut Commissariat des Nations unies pour les réfugiés” (the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees).
One of our most exciting experiences in OISMUN is our Crisis simulation, where our delegates get to undergo and react to realistic crises in regard to real-life political and humanitarian emergencies. With vast certainty, we guarantee that the Crisis simulation will prompt quick problem-solving skills as well as stimulate our delegates’ critical and creative thinking.
Joining OISMUN will not only benefit you academically, it will further enrich your communication and social skills, increase your knowledge on worldwide public affairs, connect you to people from different backgrounds and expose you to different perspectives, encourage open-mindedness, inspire various ways of thinking and certainly create countless unforgettable memories.
Be prepared to work hard but also have loads of fun through our safe and well-organized outings, ceremonies and themed events. Do not miss out on such an extraordinary experience!

On behalf of the entire OISMUN team, I look forward to welcoming you in October in CAIRO!
