Nikola Milutinovic

Simon Hunt

Nik is a fan of a good, solid GA. He enjoys writing substantial resolutions and negotiating with people who don’t agree with him yet. The three Cs – Collaboration, Compromise, and Confidence – are Nik’s go-to in the committee room, and they haven’t failed him yet. Nik is one of those people who believe there is no such thing as a stupid question, and he really doesn’t have much of a life outside of MUN, so if there is anything – anything – that you want to know about delegating or otherwise, he really would love to hear from you. Really.

Simon treats real life like it’s Dungeons and Dragons, and he treats Dungeons and Dragons like it’s real life. His committee strategies involve being humorous until people trust him and then getting all of his content passed in various resolutions. A strong crisis delegate, Simon is quick on his feet and has an answer to almost anything. His number one tip? Never underestimate your opponents. Simon is harmless (and occasionally helpful) to Carleton delegates, though, so don’t be afraid to send him an email if you need a hand.

As a delegation, you and your partner are outnumbered by a hive of two-hundred plus students. Your dais has only so much control, and draft resolutions morph into twenty-page omnibus monstrosities. Opportunities to speak are few and far between, and […]

The Art of Crisis

MUN Wisdom from Sun Tzu Most delegates have only experienced crises in the context of larger, more traditional committees.  Unbeknownst to most new delegates, however, is an entire class of committee.  Crisis committees take the archetype of a calm, deliberative assembly and smash it to pieces until all that remains is a handful of harried […]

MUN for Any Major

A beginner’s guide for those without a political focus Model United Nations (MUN) conferences can be pretty intimidating, and perhaps even more so for students from disciplines which are not a part of the predominant Public Administration and Policy Management, International Relations, and Political Science fields that make up the bulk of the society. Potentially […]

Survive and Thrive in Technical Committees

For many MUNers technical is a dirty word, a euphemism for the unfathomable, and synonymous with a dull and tedious weekend. As a result most MUNers who hail from a non-science background (i.e. 95% of you) tend to shy away from any committees discussing technical topics, such as the IAEA, the UN’s Ad Hoc Energy […]
