Since its first edition in 2011, under the convenorship of Dr. Nisha Rana, and Dr. Monika Bansal, DDUCMUN has grown to become one of the most awaited conferences in the collegiate Model UN circuit. The fourth edition of the conference was no different. Organised by the MUN Club, DDUC-MUN 2014 was held on 20th  and 21st  September in the college premises. Three committees were simulated in this conference viz. United Nations Development Programme, Human Rights Council and the Historical Security Council. Tanya Goel, Secretary General welcomed all the delegates and shared how we at DDUC-MUN strive to provide all participants an opportunity to discuss and debate a wide range of issues in the context of innovative and diverse committees. The discussion in UNDP was centred on the ‘Millennium Development Goals and Accelerating Growth’. Delegates discussed issues like poverty alleviation and providing training and grant support to the least developed countries. In the Human Rights Convention, delegates debated on the ‘Human Rights Situation in Palestinian Territory, including East Jerusalem’. Delegates investigated violations of human rights in this historically and religiously rich area while discussing possible solutions for the issue. The Historical Security Council simulated a committee that discussed ‘The Separation of East Pakistan’. Historical figures from India, Pakistan and East Pakistan along with international leaders were a part of this debate. After two days of brainstorming, the event came to an end with the Closing Ceremony on 21 September 2014. Best Delegate and High Commendation awards were given for each committee. The event saw students from various cities of India participate who comprised of both first-timers and experienced MUNers.
