"IMUNA has created a community of vibrant and engaged students who work together, learn from each other, challenge each other and inspire one another to change the world for the better."
- Daniel Hazanovitch, Former President of IMUNA
The Israeli Model United Nations Association (IMUNA) has grown from a non-profit umbrella organization representing twelve Model UN Societies in universities and colleges nation-wide, to a recognized nongovernmental organization (NGO) devoted to the enrichment of the next generation of diplomatic leaders in Israel. The organization facilitates various programs that enable students and young professionals to enhance their skills and gain experience in the fields of public speaking, conflict resolution, decision-making and negotiations through debate, workshops, and seminars. Through these forums, the organisation aims to instill a passion for diplomacy in our next generation of leaders, as well as to provide the essential tools required to work in the field. Besides traditional Model UN programs, IMUNA facilitates many other academic and social programs, some of which are designed exclusively for Model UN students, and others of which are open to the general public. These programs include seminars at the Israeli Knesset, participation in delegations of the European Union and foreign embassies, meet-up events with leading diplomats, and participation in official delegations on behalf of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The organization itself is led by individuals who've completed their Model UN training and wish to help others achieve similar goals. The organization is managed by a robust team of fifty individuals who lead the various branches of the organization on the different campuses, as well as by an executive body which leads the entire organization as a whole. Ambitious students and young professionals are always invited to take a more active leadership role within the organization, assisting their peers while developing their own leadership skills.
