A Message from the Secretary-General:

Dear Delegates, Faculty Advisors, and Friends of HNMUN-LA,

It is with the utmost pleasure and most uncontainable excitement that I welcome you to the Sixth Session of Harvard National Model United Nations Latin America! The conference will be held from January 12th to 15th, 2017, in Lima Peru!

Founded just five years ago, HNMUN Latin America strives to provide its delegates with both an incredible substantive experience and the opportunity to participate in meaningful international exchange. We are so excited to be able to create this experience in so culturally vibrant a city as Lima. In the committee room, HNMUN-LA is committed to the ideals of diplomacy, discourse, and substantive debate. Delegates will address the globe’s most exigent issues, developing comprehensive and creative solutions to intractable problems. Outside the committee room, delegates will foster international cooperation through an understanding of the world’s cultures, societies and beliefs. It is our sincere hope that delegates leave the conference having made some new friends, learned something new about the world, and gained new perspective into the experience of others.

Our wonderful, intelligent (and good-looking) staff of Harvard undergraduates bring not only rich Model UN experience, but also an enthusiasm and zeal for fun, seeking to create – to invent – a truly unforgettable experience. They could not be more thrilled to offer a diverse selection of committees, in both English and Spanish, including three General Assemblies, four Economic and Social Councils, two Specialized Agencies and an extensive Third Party Actors program. The committee experience is supplemented by multimedia presentations, expert witnesses and distinguished speakers from around the world.

On behalf of the entire Harvard team, I am truly looking forward to welcoming all of you to Lima, Peru for HNMUN-LA 2017! I can’t wait to meet every single one of you. I’ll be the handsome Indian guy with the red tie.

Sincerely,

Rohan Pidaparti
Secretary-General
Harvard National Model United Nations – Latin America 2017
