PHIMUN 2024 Committees

A committee in a Model UN conference is an adapted organ or sub-organ (i.e. fund, programme, or specialized agency) of the United Nations that delegates simulate to address different agenda topics concerning real-world problems. The composition of Member States in each committee differs, depending on the actual membership of the UN body it is designed after, wherein each Member States is represented by a delegate. The work of the committee is facilitated by a Chair, Vice Chair, and Rapporteur who collectively form the “Dais.”


Being a part of a MUN Committee sharpens a student’s negotiation, diplomatic, debate, research, and policy-making skills that drive actual change if applied in the actual world. This is helpful for aspiring diplomats, policy-makers, researchers, and global citizens. 


PHIMUN 2024 is committed to transcending borders for change by building its community of student diplomats as far as it can. Thus, under the theme “Mobilizing Global Citizenship Towards a Future of Collective Stability” delegates can choose from five committees with varying difficulty levels (Easy, Intermediate, Advanced).


Easy-level committees are perfect for first-time delegates who are either interested in starting their MUN careers or simply want to try their hand in the art of diplomacy. 


Intermediate-level committees are open to delegates who have attended a couple of MUN conferences and want to take their diplomacy game to greater heights. 


Advanced-level committees are open to seasoned delegates who are looking for a challenge and are passionate about discussing the most pressing international issues.  


Any student from Grade 10 to University-level may become a delegate to any PHIMUN 2024 committee of their choosing. The Secretariat gives the final committee and country assignments based on the information provided by the applicant.
