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 my honor to invite you all to the 13th annual Oasis International School Model United Nations Conference (OISMUN) that will be held in October 2020 at the Oasis International School campus in Cairo, Egypt. OISMUN is the first bilingual Conference in Egypt with both French and English committees affiliated to The Hague International Model United Nations (THIMUN), a global leader in the MUN community.
To support an inclusive environment where participants feel empowered to share their ideas and arguments, we have chosen the theme of “creating a more equitable world through embracing diversity and inclusion”. Through this theme, our delegates will have the opportunity to debate important topics by simulating the operations of some of the main United Nations organs such the UN General Assembly, Security Council, the Economic and Social council (ECOSOC), the International Court of Justice, the Human Rights Council, and specialized agencies such as the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crimes and the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women. More importantly, our delegates will get to experience this year’s theme as we are committed to build and nurture a culture where inclusiveness is a reflex, not an initiative. We know through experience that different ideas, perspectives and backgrounds create a stronger and more creative work environments and fruitful debates that deliver better results.
As a bilingual conference, we have established three French-speaking committees: the Security Council (Le Conseil de Sécurité), the Human Rights Council (Le Conseil des Droits de l’Homme) and the Disarmament Committee (Le Comité de Désarmement). Building on previous successes, the Conference will continue its thrilling crisis simulations which allow delegates to react and take actions with regards to humanitarian or political real-life crises.
OISMUN is not only a conference that will benefit you on an academic level, but it is also your chance to meet other delegates, get exposure to new perspectives and create unforgettable memories.
To be engaged, you must feel included and valued. We have prepared for you a number of preparatory activities and introductory sessions to make sure that you hit the ground running when OISMUN 13 starts. Be prepared to work hard and also have loads of fun through our well organized outings, ceremonies and themed events. Do not miss out on such an experience!
In case of any inquiries, do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
On behalf of the entire OISMUN team, I look forward to welcoming you in October in Cairo!

In January 2016, OISMUN was granted affiliation by The Hague International Model United Nations (THIMUN). THIMUN is one of the biggest MUN conferences in the world and is a global leader in the MUN community. THIMUN affiliation links those MUNs, which wish to be associated with THIMUN and whose educational goals, standards and quality of organisation are recognised as being of an appropriately high standard. It is our distinct honor to be affiliated by such a prestigious conference.
Time till OISMUN!
