This event will be an interdisciplinary Model United Nations. LeidenMUN delegates, alumni, and prospective delegates will debate with students of the Humanities faculty about iconoclasm (the destruction of cultural heritage).
Iconoclasm is an age-old topic that has increasing relevancy given the events occurring in Islamic State dominated areas. Cultural heritage is often perceived as the backbone of any civilisation but its artefacts are oftentimes vulnerable during a conflict.
During this event you will represent a country in UNESCO (UN Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organisation). Together with the other countries present you will try to come up with realistic and creative solutions for the topic at hand.
