The UN Youth Association of Romania, partner of the Faculty of Political Science at the University of Bucharest (FSPUB), invites interested students to apply for participating in the 7th edition of the Bucharest International Student Model United Nations (BISMUN conference), which will take place between the 25th and 30th of March 2015 at the Romanian Parliament under the title World Peace: Modern Day Illusion or Realistic Possibility.

BISMUN 2015 is an academic simulation of several bodies of the United Nations, held in English and organized by the UN Youth Association of Romania.

UN committees simulations, known as "Model United Nations" have a long tradition in numerous prestigious universities across the globe, being recognized as important forums for debate due to their ability to provide viable solutions to current issues on the international agenda, but also due to their ability to provide alternative answers to difficult historical situations within the global political arena. Since the first academic simulation of decision- making in the United Nations, held in 1952 at Harvard University, the phenomenon of "MUN" has expanded globally and attracts an increasing number of students, particularly in the fields of political science, international relations, diplomacy, law, economics, cultural studies, etc.

BISMUN 2015 Conference will simulate the following UN structures: the UN Security Council, the 1st Committee of the GA (DISEC), the 3rd Committee of the GA (SOCHUM), the UN Human Rights Council, the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), the Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space (COPUOS) and the Crisis Committee.

Like during the previous editions, the event is expected to gather around 200 participants from all over the world, especially from the European Union.
